PRESIDENTS CORNER – December is already here and everybody is preparing for the Christmas Holiday. We served over 450 attendees at the “Breakfast with Santa “ fundraising event through episodes of rain. It didn’t stop Santa from making his arrival to the delight of a lot of kids. My thanks to all members and high school volunteers.

Fifteen Mini Grant Awards will be presented to local elementary and middle schools on Dec. 17 .
Please keep our member, Paul Holmquist, in your thoughts. He is at St. Angus Hospital.

I want to wish all members and their families a MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY NEW YEAR and safe travels throughout this hectic holiday season.
