THIS WEEK IN REVIEW ....April 7, 2005

This weeks Reporter- Bill Worth

Song - Enslowr           Pledge-Morrone                    Invocation - Rev. Robinson

Today’s fare was Bar-B-Q Beef, Potatoes, Cole Slaw and Cookies. We had two guests today: Jim Britton, member of Southwest Sertoma and guest of Norm Schillo; and Diana Milne, member of the Dry Creek Club.  Diana asked for support in her effort to do a ‘Marathon Walk’ (it would take most of our club in serial to walk that far) for the American Stroke Association.  Several members took information; call her and say you will support her effort.(303-79804357).  Table One, including it’s extended family, paid the usual two bit fine.  Report of D Team effort was good, with almost 200 players in attendance, plenty of workers, about $5000  deposited, and the Progressive (more than $14,000) available for the E team to give away. 
No Handshake; Pot O Gold went to Dave Miley.
