September 5th Dinner Meeting

Where: California Dreaming, Augusta

Who: Cathy and Sonny Black, Brian and Donna Bogardus, Kurt and Karen Breitinger, Mike and Shirley Dyer, Larry and Rita Garner, Jeff Kelley and Gary Lynn, Glen and Deb Link, Dennis and Karol Mason, Hal and Trudy Scott, Darryl Shipman and Sherry Moore, and Tom Varallo.

Thanks to Kurt and Karen Breitinger for planning this dinner meeting.  We all talked, ordered, and ate a tasty dinner before adjourning to the parking lot to hold a quick meeting.

Treasurer’s Report: The balance started at $1056.91, and added $10 in dues (New member Pat Charlotte), and deducted $50 to Alzheimer’s Association for flowers for Dennis’s Mom, ending balance is $1016.91.

Club Business:

  • As of now, Brian & Donna are still planning the Deals Gap/Leaf Peep drive on Friday-Sunday November 1-3rd.  We will be spending Friday and Saturday night there and head home on your own whenever Sunday.  (This drive will be held unless Brian and Donna sell their house before then)  See the website for updates, and more info.
  • Karol is planning a drive for 21 Sep, and had intended to plan a drive to White Hills Farm in Dearing, GA.  But it looks like they go to the Augusta Market on Saturdays so we may not be able to get into the farm that day.  Look to the website for updates.
  • 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.

The Secretary was not present for the meeting, and after the President claimed that he would remember what went on, quick thinking Gary Ly decided to act as Recording Secretary by hitting the record button on his phone. He missed the Treasurer’s Report, but for those of you who couldn’t be there and really miss the “excitement” of a Club Meeting, below is 5+ minutes of audible bliss:

June 6th Dinner Meeting

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.
