Picnic News

Milt Ehrenberg and his helpers did a great, great job. We all ate too much food, Milt bought too much food and had a good time selling left-over’s. Thanks again Milt.

It was amazing how many women’s names were pulled from the hat for the door prizes. All were good sports and the grand prize went to Joe Guppenberger. He will use the battery drill for some great future projects. Thanks to Rockler and others for their donations.
