  • John Lassos, PRESIDENTPRESIDENTS CORNER – I am happy to report our Car Show was very successful, thanks to Chair Bob Spinelli and all the members and volunteers. Moving on, 166 members and guests enjoyed the second night of production of the play, Peter Pan, along with a tasty dinner at the GCT. Special mention should be given to the “dog”, who was played by Ed and Carol George’s grand daughter!Many thanks to Chair, Rich Mc Crea who pulled the entire event together and made it look VERY smooth! Thanks to all members and families who helped. Mini Grant applications will be sent out this week to the Mountain Area elementary and intermediate school educators with a planned awards program in mid December. Thanks to Jim Rice who is working with YHS to develop a Key Club. Remember it takes ALL members working together at our events to make them successful…………………………………………………………………………………John
