Minutes of 2-24-

Dave R. called the meeting to order at 6:01. Attendance: 62 members and 17 guests.

We gained three new members this month… Lacy K, William J. and Dave G. Welcome to all!

Welcome back Glen G. We missed not seeing you for a long time.

Dave recognized Jody D. for taking on recording secretary duties and gave him an embroidered club shirt and business cards with his new title.

Flagler Co. Sheriff Jim Manfre was welcomed as our guest speaker. Among other things, the sheriff said the county should be run like a business, his office is encouraging more street patrols for safety, as well as more neighborhood watches, and says our crime rate is quite low, thanks in large part to the older demographic which makes up our population.

A lengthy Q & A session followed, with red light cameras the hottest topic. Dave R. presented Sheriff Manfree a framed certificate of appreciation.

Reminder… our annual show is THIS SATURDAY at the Elks Lodge on Old Kings Rd. We need help early setting up, and help selling tickets for the Chinese auction.

Dave R. informed us a letter arrived from the IRS, confirming the club’s 501c3 status retroactive to 2012.

Bob K. gave the Treasurer’s report.

VP Frank D. reported he went to an elementary school for a program with the students. The post office did not provide items as they used to do, but the club provided stamps, pennies and postcards. Frank says the kids were very grateful for the goodies.

Dave R. says the club has three additional golf shirts for sale at a significant discount off retail. Than you Suzanne S. for providing these shirts.

Dave was given a Lowe’s gift card as a birthday present from the club. The card was wrapped in what looked like 10 layers of wrapping and boxes.

Door prizes are won by Dave R. and Jody D. And no, it wasn’t rigged…we swear!

Thank you to Paul B. who helped with the 50/50 ticket sales.

Thank you and welcome back Vera B. for your help at the welcome table.

Thank you Bob K.  for handling our web page and collecting dues.

Thank you Mr. S. (Jacob S’s father) for his help with the tables.

Thank you for Carmela F. for your help with the door prize tickets.

Thank you Frankie D., Horst S. and Dave R., Francine F., and C.L.W. for your help with the auction.

Thank you Jane M. for your assistance when asked.

Thank you Frank M. for making sure we have a full Treasure

Box for our next meeting.

Thank you Billy Bob and John H. for their assistance in our educational program.

And if I missed anyone else… thank you also.

It is with the members help every month that makes us the best club in Palm Coast and beyond.

Charlie C. won the 50-50.

22 additional door prizes–pewter pins–are handed out to lucky winners.

Following an active and successful auction, the winner of the Treasure Box drawing was not in attendance, so it carries over to March. Sorry Frank M. You should have stayed a little longer!!

Note:  Next month Ray H. will be putting on a special program that will interest everyone. Make sure to mark your calendar. Next meeting will be March 24th.

Remember members can bring items to share, sell, and trade at every meeting.
