Bulletin for August 17, 2016

 
 
Current Membership: 56 members
 
Hello Everyone,
 
Last Week: We heard from Lisa Chamberlain from the Chamberlain Group. They are doing very impressive work with anatomy models for teaching hospitals. Their experience in movie special effects has brought them to this very important and interesting business based here in Great Barrington.   
 
This Week’s Program:  We will have our club assembly. Please review the committees you are on and be an active member. Before we get to club business, we will hear a short report from Tor Stumo and Jan Schmied about their youth exchange experience. We will also welcome Irene Gomez Garcia, Our exchange student who arrived Sunday. Remember to invite her to your home or include her in your plans.

 

The Bike-N-Fly:  Please remember to bring your drone bomb tickets. Louann needs a count for the grid. If you have any unsold tickets, please bring them as well.
 
Thank you all for volunteering to help with intersections and donating food and water. This is a lot of work for all of us, but I hope it’s a labor of love. We still need a few more ice coolers and other items. Please contact me if you can help.
 
Book drive: There will be a new Book House installed at Christian Hill Commons for children. Please bring easy reading books for children aged 4 to 6 years old.
