The Buzz – 2/8/16

Hi Everyone! We had a great meeting today…most members were in attendance, however, we still missed a few. We had several guests join us today, as well. And Tommy was back! Forrest announced that we now have a PR Committee in place! Dora will be heading that committee and Wilda will co-chair. Thanks ladies!! *BINGO*: For last weeks Super Bingo there were 126 people in attendance. The Hamm Team is up this week! *50/50*: Jackpot was at $418.00 ~ Mike G. drew the Joker and WON!! Congratulations, Mike!! Today’s guest speaker was Lynn Brincks with Trout Unlimited. Lynn spoke to the club about the upcoming *Blue Ridge Trout Fest & Outdoor Adventures *on April 30th and the *Trout Train* to take placethe night before on April 29th (6:00). Lynn also explained that Trout Unlimited is not a fishing club (contrary to popular belief), Trout Unlimited is a conservation club. Some of the programs they sponsor are “Trout in the Classroom” for middle school children. “Rivers Alive” which is a clean up project along the banks of the rivers and “Project Healing Waters” which is a veterans outreach program. Trout Unlimited meets the 2nd Saturday of each month at the Fannin County Chamber of Commerce conference room at 9:00 am. For more information, contact Lynn Brincks (678)232-9155 or lynnb@tds.net.

Also, just a reminder that February 22nd we will be having the Star Student Banquet at 7:00pm at Circle J; so there will not be a lunch meeting. Please plan on joining us for theBanquet. Have a great week! Stay warm, but THINK SNOW!! Tammy
