Ed Merski, Peter Karagianis, and Warren Mitchell8,

This meeting will be remembered for 2 things: 1. The pathetic version of My Country Tis of Thee we opened with. Awful. And 2. We adjourned at 6:50! We’re here for a good time, not a long time.00 x 300, RGB 8 bits/Pixel

On board are Joe Adrignola, Kathy Calvin, Warren Mitchell, Terry Fortson from the superintendent's office and Randy Brough from Laconia Public Library. The theme for the day is non fiction. Anyone interested in helping out, just show up at Elm Street School. Thanks!

Bike Rodeo Update:
Joe Adrignola circulated a sign-up sheet for the Bike Rodeo. The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 12, 2007 and will take place in the downtown parking lot across from Greenlaw’s Music. Jim Fortier advised the club that we will NOT be having a car seat safety check that day due to manpower and time limitations. Mr. Phil and his balloon twirling will be on hand just like last year. The sign up sheet will go around again next week. Stay Tuned….

The Boys and Girls Club of the Lakes Region Dinner will be on June 30th from 5-9pm at Sacred Heart Hall in Laconia. Joe Collie will serve as MC of the event and the club has purchased a sponsor table for 5. If anyone is interested in representing the club at the event, please let Dianne Zawacki know. More details coming soon. Thanks!

Wet Day:
The wind and the rain made it a very wet Monday. Many areas were flooded including Roger Landry's table.

Happy Dollars: 1
The above 50 50 winners were dubbed “cheap bastards” because the five of them gave a total of only 3 bucks. Then, Warren Mitchell gave a dollar because his basement was not flooded and he had no broken windows at his house. Roger Landry then gave a happy dollar because he was glad the day was almost over. Dick Metz gave a happy dollar because Roger Landry was going to suck water out of his house. This increased the collecive contributions from the five 50 50 winners to $6. Subsequently, Steve Loughlin gave a dollar and retracted his “cheap bastards” label. In all, $7 was collected from this happy group!

None. That won’t help the general account.
