PRESIDENTS PANTRY

  • Ray Connor – Marquette – bowl

All are reminded to fill out a President’s Pantry form when bringing in an item.  This will help keep record for the annual dinner auction.

 

RAFFLE

 

JoAnn Draeger had her winning ticket picked. Unfortunately, she then picked a black marble.  Better luck next time JoAnn.
