Starting at 8:00AM and going till about noon.  Lots of features to make this a fun day for the whole family! Food trucks, beer garden, raffles, lots of prizes.

Michela is working on a website which will show all the details and allow for on-line registration.  This promises to be a major fundraiser for our club.   ALL HANDS ON DECK FOR THIS ONE!
GUESS WHO'S COMING FOR DINNER! - May 4th
 
LAST WEEK TO SIGN UP FOR THIS FUN EVENT!
Here's how it works: you will be given the opportunity to be a dinner guest, or host, on May 4th. We'll form dinner groups of not more than  3 or 4 couples, to be assigned arbitrarily and secretively. If you volunteer to host, you will be responsible for the entire meal.  If you just want to be guest, all you have to do is show up at the designated address. Hosts won't know who is coming and guests won't know where they're going! This will be a blast!!
 
The sign up sheets will be available at our meeting next week. You may also download the form from the website's "Club Documents"  or click here. Due back by April 15th.
QUARTERLY CAUSE - Phone4Charity
Locate your old phones & devices - we can donate them to Phones4Charity who will return cash to us which we can donate to a cause of our choice.  Be sure to "clean" them first, to protect your information. If you din't know how, James will do it for you.
 
"There are over 800 million retired cell phones discarded in drawers, desks, and storages in the United States with over 140 million more entering the waste stream each year. Phones 4 Charity is a national program designed to remove used cell phones from the country's environment while directly benefiting charitable organizations."
