Spring is in the air!  Can you smell it?  No?

Are you still buried under snow and ice?  Wait for it ---- Spring’s coming ---- maybe NEXT month!

 

Although a few of us were disappointed in the slow service at the Tilted Kilt, most of the 40 members present enjoyed their meals.  We had a bit more room in the main dining area, and our speaker system worked well in spite of the noise of the peripheral crowd.  Manager, Terry Smith, did a presentation on his new business, Rust/Check of Watertown.  It was quite interesting.

  

New Members:

Chuck & Gail Vogt – 2003 50th Anniv.conv.

 

It’s official --- Stuart Price has ordered his new C-7 – a Crystal Red Convertible!

 

A fun time was had by all on the Casino trip.  The buses were almost full, even after a few last minute cancellations.  The Club netted $1,600.50 in our biggest fund-raiser of the year.  Rumor has it, that Tom Cheney won again!  How can one person be so lucky?
