Happy New Year!

If you missed it, we had a great time at our annual Christmas dinner with 40 people attending. Door prizes included 3 gold pieces with the remaining in silver collectables.  Morgan, who could not attend due to a Band concert obligation, had made Christmas ornaments for non-members.  Her little brothers, Ryan and Dylan, passed out the Door Prizes and ornaments.  We had a super interesting presentation on ancient coins by John ending with coins of Jesus’ time. Dave  put on a fun and exciting raffle with winners all over. A Big Thank You to Cathy for arranging our Party with the Tuscan Hall.

We welcomed a new officer for 2017. Glenn J. was elected as Vice President.  Thank you Glenn for your dedication and support.

In December, our club volunteers rang the Salvation Army Bell at the Sunset Dr, Pic&Sav.  Our annual volunteer effort brought in $266.10 this year.
