June 6th Dinner Meeting

When: June 6th, 2019

Where: Apizza di Napoli then Pot Smoker BBQ, Aiken

Who: Brian and Donna Bogardus, Don and Kay Boltz, Mike and Shirley Dyer, Brenda Hays, Glen and Deb Link, Dennis and Karol Mason, Bill and Margie Vandermass (new members), Rolf and Annie Wilms, and Dave and Sue Woomer.

Thanks to Dennis for planning this dinner meeting but with Apizza di Napoli closed (due to a death in the family) Mr. President decided to meet in the parking lot and decide where to go from there. We held a quick meeting there in the parking lot then headed across the street to Pot Smoker BBQ, which was busy and tasty as usual.

Treasurer’s Report: The balance started at $1056.91, and added $20 in dues (Darr & Acord), and deducted $50 for flowers for Rita’s Mom, ending balance is $1026.91.

Club Business:
• The Trenton Peach Parade will occur on June 15th, and we plan to meet at the Airport Grill
(address below) and see what kind of turnout we get and decide if we will go from there. Bring candy to throw to the kids in case we have enough show and decide to participate. Hope to see you there!
• There will be no dinner meeting for July since the first Thursday falls on the 4th.
• We have nothing planned for the July breakfast/drive – anyone want to volunteer to do
anything?
• Please remember to RSVP to our events – it makes it difficult for the planner if we don’t
know how many will show – especially for smaller venues. Your RSVP is greatly appreciated, so please don’t forget.

Ongoing:
• See Dennis Mason for name tags, if you so desire.
• Club merchandise is available: Pins are $3 each; “Support Vehicle” car magnets are $25
per pair, canvas tote/shopping bag $20 each. The 3” window stickers have come in and are available now.

Communigraphics in North Augusta has our logo, for $8 you can have it embroidered on just about anything.
