Gents,

Thank you to you and your club members for helping again this year with the Jaycee’s Fishing Extravaganza!!  I was told by Andrew that they thought we did an “Outstanding” job again this year and that they couldn’t do the contest without our ongoing help. Please pass on the message to all those that helped and let the other club members know how much the JayCees appreciate our help with this event.

My list for next year’s needs say we need new Security Badges for the ATV’s and we need to send a plowing map to Andrew for next year. Anything else?

Thanks!!

Darrel Palmer
