PRESIDENTS CORNER – Well, our BINGO event was quite a success thanks to all the club members and spouses who volunteered. We participated in the Sierra Mountain Communities for a Cure Relay for Life at Minarets High School by hosting the Survivors Breakfast and the Pancake Breakfast for the public. Again Thanks to all who volunteered their time. We have a couple of events to look forward to this month. See details below. Lets all work together to make them successes. Wishing all club members and their families a very Happy Easter.
