Hello fellow members!
Well, this year’s drawing of the “Mystery Safe” was surely a surprise to Fred Chartier, who had just purchased his ticket that night! Always nice when our winner is present! Our second and third place winners were not, but I can tell you that both of them were just as happy and surprised at winning cash!
This year the safe and it’s contents were worth over $5,000! We had over 5,000 tickets sold this year, making a profit of almost $13,000 dollars for the Main Club. That’s no small feat considering the challenges we faced this past year.
I’d like to thank the Friends Committee for their work this past year putting together the donations and purchases that went into the safe, and stuffing the 1,500 envelopes that went out to our membership! Whew!
I’d also like to thank the Women’s Auxiliary, and DR Wilson for their cash contribution as well as the Muzzleloaders for their donation of a muzzleloader. I’d also like to thank William Krause, Fred Gallasch, Conrad Miesiak, Tim
Burtrum, Wallace Grosinsky, Chris & Kelly Finazzo, John Towns, Troy Henke, and Bill Mangan for their donation of cash and items to the safe. I would also like to thank the many members who purchased tickets, or sold tickets to friends and family outside of the club. Without your support, the Mystery Safe would not be possible. Your support through these tough times is greatly appreciated and not overlooked!
Also, special thanks to our bartenders Tammy and Kim for selling tickets as diligently as they pour drinks for our
patrons in the bar!
The Friends Committee is hoping to have our regular banquet this year in August, please stay tuned for more details.
Have a safe and wonderful new year!
Friends Committee Chair
