Updated 9/15. After Hours Club. Scheduled for the first Wednesday of the month at 5:30 pm, at The Office. Feel free to bring along prospective members.  Contact Pat RuddIn person meetings at The Office suspended until further notice, but other activities are being planned.
 
Updated 7/5. Friday Food Bag. Unpackings and fillings are on a limited schedule. Contact Tom Roberts to get the latest information.
 
Club/committee members who need propane tanks for their project area asked to first use partially full tanks, before they start a new one. Why? The fill charge for each tank, whether it is partially full or empty, makes no difference, is $75 per tank. The charge is a flat rate, with no proportional credit for topping off a partially full tank. It cost in the neighborhood of $825 when the tanks were last topped off, and much of that went toward topping off partially full tanks.
 
So, if you need propane, take and use a partially full tank and, if you think that may not be enough, take a full tank as a backup.
 
Your cooperation is appreciated by the Club's budget.
