Hi Everyone! We had a great turnout for the meeting today! Today’s speaker was the lovely, Loraine Panter! Loraine spoke with us about the Blue Ridge United Methodist Church Pre-School Program, which began in 1969. The Kiwanis Club of Blue Ridge presented a check for $200.00 to Loraine for the program.
*Black Friday Bingo* – was a success with 114 people in attendance. Thanks to all Kiwanians who came out to help with selling extras and the Concession Stand! This week is *SUPER BINGO*; the McConnell Team is up! Come out and play….you could WIN the jackpot of $1000.00!
*Benefit Bingo*, tomorrow night (Tuesday) to benefit Fannin County High School Band. Cards go on sale at 7:00….games begin at 7:30! Come out and help or just come out and support the FCHS Band!
*50/50 – *$396.00 in the pot! Larry Ray’s ticket was drawn….Larry drew a 9 of hearts! And the pot continues to grow! Sorry, Larry!
Next *Monday, December 5th* is our Annual Christmas Dinner/Dirty Santa Gift Exchange at the *Blue Ridge Swim and Tennis Club* at 5:30 for fellowship. Dinner is at 6:00. If you have not signed up, please email Tom or myself! We will NOT have a lunch meeting at the Circle J. For the Dirty Santa gift exchange, please bring a wrapped gift (*with a value of $20.00 please*) and labeled MALE, FEMALE or EITHER! Also, we will be accepting monetary donations for the 12/19/16 Blue Ridge Kiwanis sponsored Children’s Trip on the Santa Train! We will be using this money to buy gifts for the children. We prefer money instead of gifts, as this way we can monitor what each child will receive. Cash or Checks are much appreciated! If you do write a check, please make it payable to Kiwanis Club of Blue Ridge.
*Mark your calendar* ~ The Club voted today and we will *not* have a lunch meeting on Monday, December 26th, but we *will* have a Board Meeting on Monday, January 2. Hope you can make it!
Have a great week!
Tammy
