Orphans and Odd Balls


The date for clean-up for the August show has been changed to Saturday, July 22nd. July 23rd is rain date or for more clean-up if needed.


Clean-up is April 29th which will involve mowing if necessary, yard clean-up, food shop clean-up, mark off parking area by food shop, signs, etc. A potluck will be held around noon. Please come and help. Rain date or date for more clean-up if needed is April 30th. The swap meet dates are May 5 and 6.


At the March meeting there was discussion about food for the vendor supper Saturday night during the August show. We discussed hiring someone to do the pork and also asking for volunteers from the club to smoke it. Terry says it would probably take 100 lbs. of pork butt. If we have any ladies (or men) who would like to volunteer to cook any food items, we could save some money, especially on the pork. Pork could be smoked and froze ahead of the show date. The club would reimburse you. Please call Matt Avery, 269-506-9926, if you are interested.


Jim Susemihl is our event co-ordinator/scheduler. You may contact him for details on any event in which our club participates, 269-341-3611.
