2001 Fall Classic
John Grocki was on hand to field questions on our proposed golf tournament at Pheasant Ridge Country Club, Monday, October 1. The club will need to field 10 members to cover morning and afternoon shifts. Duties will include checking players in, passing out goody bags, and monitoring the Hole-in-One. Imm. Past Lt. Gov. Chet Cilley pointed out that Concord Hospital just netted $25,000 from their recent tournament.

Don't Show Up
We will not be meeting on Monday, September 3 (Labor Day). The club and Boards will meet on Tuesday, September 4.

Bulletin Patrons
Fundraising Chair Phil Bonafide reminds members who volunteered to contact past Kronikle supporters to re-up. And other members should be on the lookout for new patrons.

Installation 2001
V.P. Phil Bonafide has made arrangements to have our installation dinner on Monday, September 24, at Pheasant Ridge Country Club. It will be a guest night with incoming Lt. Gov. Ken Georgevits.

We're Great
Past Pres. Chet Cilley cited an article from The Concord Monitor involving Past Pres. Joe Adrignola that seemed to think we were a pretty good club.

Pres.-Elect Phil Bonafide would like to invite all committee chairs to continue through our next fiscal year and to provide budget requests for same. Pres. Don Nelson also reports that there will be a Dental Committee meeting in the near future. He recommends that future presidents plan on being a committee member (as allowed by bylaw).

Sgt.-at-Arms Roger Landry found John Grocki, Scott Beane, Larry Murphy, Randy Eifert, and Dennis Denoncourt pinless; Chet Cilley was tardy.

Guest Speaker
This writer introduced Owner Stan Garfield and Office Manager Jenna Blake, Garfield Pest Control to the club. Family owned and staffed, they specialize in the treatment of wood-destroying insects (carpenter ants, termites, and powder post beetles) and hornets. With offices in Merrimac and Gilford, they service communities from southern to central New Hampshire. They take special pride in proper diagnosis and treatment of pest problems. The vast majority of their business is dealing with carpenter ants, whose workers often invade homes in search of food. These ants may excavate moist, rotting wood and other soft materials (such as foamed plastic insulation board). They hibernate during the winter unless they are in a heated portion of the building. Ants can survive harsh winters because they have a natural antifreeze in their bodies. They can also withstand immersion in water up to 70 hours without drowning. Queen carpenter ants can live 10-25 years under ideal conditions. First nests have to be located and dealt with, then preventative EPA-approved chemicals are injected into problematical areas such as around bathroom fixtures.
