Fund Raising:
Brian Winslow and Joe Collie shared the highlights of the recent fund raising committee meeting, held at lunchtime last Friday, February 15th. In addition to Brian and Joe; Dick Metz was also in attendance, though Dick was not at the meeting tonight. Some of the highlights were:
*** Go forward with Bike Week raffle of trip to Bike Week in Myrtle Beach
*** Explore possibilities of charity nights at a bigger track on the seacoast or return to The Lodge next year.
*** Look at more involvement in the 4th of July Celebration, where we already have an involvement and a built-in audience.
*** Explore the possibility of an ATV raffle over fair season, culminating at the Sandwich Fair in October. Joe will explore dates, etc...
Next week, hopefully more information will be made available regarding the Bike Week Raffle. Also, as indicated, Past President Joe Collie will have a schedule of possible fairs to attend with an ATV raffle, including dates, vendor fees, and attendance figures. Stay Tuned.

He's doing just fine...
Larry Murphy was down to Florida recently to check in with Jim Fortier. He says Jim is enjoying his time down in Barefoot Bay. He is enjoying the sunny weather and continuing to feed the turtles. He looks forward to seeing us again in April.

Happy Dollars
Brian Winslow for winning the 50/50 and Roger Landry for Warren buying a classic pick up truck that Roger was interested in. Now he doesn't have to spend the money, he can still drive it, and will make money off Warren buying parts at NAPA. Seems he should have given three happy dollars for that one!

This is why he's on the fund raising committee: he raises money!
