Dave R. calls meeting to order at 6:01. Attendance 70 (including 8-10 guests, many who met us at the home show)

Dave reminds everyone that, while we can bring in food again as of this month, all drinks must be purchased at the VFW cantee

Dave says our expenses are and will be up considerably this year.

Welcome David S. #275 and James C., #276…our newest members.

Lohman’s on Old Kings Rd is putting on a presentation for pre-need funeral services Feb. 7 at 11 am at Golden Corral. Members can get info and a free lunch.

Our annual club show on Mar. 4 is sold out, of course. Dave asks members to seek gift certificates from merchants they know as prizes for the show’s Chinese auction.  Secret word for DPV for FEB meeting is VFW

Thank you to everyone who helped set up for our covered dish meal tonight, and thanks to all who helped at our booth at the home show. Tom H. receives special recognition for helping set up tables 2 hours after passing a kidney stone!

Happy bday Paul N.

Happy bday Mr. President & Jean P. (Frankie D. presents them with cupcakes from the club)

Dave gives Frankie polo shirt sent to us in gratitude from the post office in Palencia, Spain.

Bob K. gives Treasurer’s Report, reminding everyone that, with expenses up, all support via membership, 50/50, auctions, etc. is especially important this year.

Mike N. talks about book he’s reading…”The End of Money”. It’s about how people deal with money and the future where all transactions are electronic.

Dr. John Z. talks about the first stamps in the Western world…they were “invented” by a Scottish efficiency expert because too many letters were ending up in the dead letter office instead of being paid for by the recipients.

Door prize vouchers to Linda C. and Bob S.

Other door prizes of magnetic list pads given to many winners.

50-50 split between Joyce and Bob K.

Congrats to young member Matthew F. who has attained the Order of the Arrow in the Boy Scouts.

Good Of The Club auction is held, followed by regular auction.

Treasure chest winner was Dar F., who was not in attendance, so we have a rollover.

Respectfully submitted,

Jody D.
