Guilderland Elks Lodge, Tri City Sams meeting
Chuck, VP called the meeting to order.
Members present were; Bob, Carol, Chuck, Doris, Edd, Elaine, Ev, Fran, George, Gil, Janet, Joyce, Linda, Patricia, Rich and Wendy. Everyone introduced himself or herself.
Chuck told us our new New York State Director is Maryann and Richard Crouch.
Sunshine Club sent out get-well cards to Barry, Darlene and Ev. Sympathy card to Joyce and Kirk for their nieces passing.
Angela’s friend Joyce M., who was a new member, dropped out, due to the illness of her two daughters.
Chuck went over the Camp schedule. He reminded us to send in our camping deposit to George 45 days prier to the camp outing. Please make checks payable to Tri City Sams.
There aren’t any bookings for August. Remember the last date on any campground is the day we leave.
Next we discussed the use of George’s gas grill as a community grill at campouts. We will pay for the propane.
We talked about the food menu. We are still bringing our own meat, to cook on the grill, and a dish to share.
Everyone wanted to know what was in West Canada Creek. Are there eating-places? How about a pool, canoeing, ice cream or a pavilion? Doris said it is a great place and there is a nice indoor pavilion.
There was no unfinished business.
50/50 was won by Linda.
Chuck passed out 35-year anniversary patches and asked if anyone else needed one.
Adjourned at 8:45.
