Seasons Greetings

I hope everyone is doing well and getting into the Holiday spirit! We have two exciting events coming up this month, and want to be sure everyone gets information regarding the times and dates.

Our annual Holiday party will be held on January 12th (Thursday) at the Lazy River Grill. The event will start at 6:30pm, with dinner to begin at 7:00pm. We will have a very nice gift for the first twenty families that email their RSVP's back to the club Gmail. Please include your name and number of people attending. The Lazy River Grill is located at 631 Big Bend Road in Manchester, MO. 

On January 21st (Saturday) we are attending Bald Eagle Days at Pere Marquette State Park. Thanks, Lezza, for making the arrangements! Our group is limited to 10 people, so please email us at the club Gmail if you wish to be included. I will let you know if you were in the group of first responses. We will meet at the Pere Marquette State Park's Visitor Center at 8:00am. Anyone can join us for lunch around 11:00-11:30 at the Pere Marquette Lodge.  We will drive back home together via ferry, so bring some cash!!!

Our club officers want to wish everyone a Happy and Healthy 2017.....

Keep rolling,
Greg Kraner, President
