Meeting Minutes from Prez Jim - 12/8/10

A Happy Birthday to Lynn Barnes - (12th) and a Thank You for putting together the "Spouses Night Out". Reminder that Marion has a couple of tickets if you or someone you know would like to go to the play this Sunday.

Nine members of the Circle "K" participated in the W'loo Jaycees "Gift of Giving" last week. They are also sponsoring a family for Christmas. It appears to me that what they lack in number they more than make up in quality! Also, a thanks to Greg for representing our club as an advisor.

Greg passed around a draft of a letter to be sent protesting the way dues for Circle "K" are set.

The Rough Risers endorsed the letter unanimously.

Kettle Corn sponsorship continues forward in a positive way. Over $10,000 has been collected or committed.

For those of you who did not have the opportunity we will pass the envelope for Mary at our next meeting.

We had an excellent presentation by representatives of the "Student Council for Exceptional Children" led by Christina Curran. We will be considering a contribution to this worthwhile project.

In discussion with some of the representatives they greatly appreciated the suggestions that were made from Club members.

Next week we will be wrapping gifts for the family we will be sponsoring.

Our greeter is appropriately enough Bob Nelson who has coordinated the Christmas Family project.

Have your best "shopping" week ever!
