We met at St. Nicodemus Church picnic area for our annual family picnic. Ron Hudson thanked everyone who worked at the fair.  A good time was had by those of us that attended and the food was great. Thank You Pat for all the worked you did to make this a success. We would like to see more members there next year, so we can have a ladder ball tournament.

Announcements

 

The fair was a huge success if you haven’t heard yet.

The final tally was $16,899. Since we were $101 short of $17,000, Jim is asking anyone who wants to contribute up to $5.00. Therefore, chances are we’ll be over $17,000.

Since 2005, our clubs have raised $118,794 for Make-A-Wish. The break down is as follows:

2005                2007                2008                2009                2010               

6318                10,540             14,832             13,205             16,899

 

A SPECIAL THANK YOU TO Jim Hilburger, Bob Ball, Rich Mialki, and Gary Jones for their time and energy toward this cause. A big thank you also to all everyone for their time at the booth either turning or selling for this cause. Without your time and effort this could not have been accomplished with such success.

 

Sept. demo will be Gene Musial. It is a surprise what he will be demoing.

 

I also want to inform you all that we will be looking for someone to take over the secretarial job for the coming year. Now that my husband is retired, we will be spending more time in the south, and I will not be able to continue in the position. Please consider helping the club and volunteer for the position.

DEMO

 

ELMER’S CORNER

I found this idea in this month’s Handyman

Slick charger I.D. tag

With all of the electrical rechargeable devices like phones, cameras, etc., that a lot of us have, it is also true that we have a drawer full of chargers and transformer for these devices. Of course they all look alike and it is hard to find the one you need in the tangled mess. Solution: With a white marker, label each one when you buy and store the charger. Then when you need it, you can find it quickly.

 

Respectfully submitted,
