Worthy Presidentís Message:I want to welcome all our new members, our members are what makes our club great. If you know someone who would like to be a member please sign them up. I want to thank all our volunteers that make this club go. If you don't volunteer, ask any officer and they will help you find a way to help our club.

I want to welcome our new auditor Alan Bernard, he is taking over a very important job and I'm sure he will be great at it.

If you have an idea for an event to help the club raise money, please bring it to our attention. We are always looking for new ways to raise money for our many charities. So, if you don't already volunteer please do so. Thank You. Worthy President, Don Springsteen
