October Club Outing Lunch&Antiques

Posted on July 29, 2018 at 10:00am 8 Comments

We are planning an off site club outing sometime in October. The club will provide food&drink at local establishment and the group will leisurely wander around a dozen huge antique shops in the town of Alton IL. One of the few places on earth we can still respectfully haggle. Here's a few store fronts.

Raffle for Christmas dinners.

Posted on November 18, 2017 at 4:59pm 14 Comments

Club is getting a head start on fundraising dinners for families in need. Most of us have been there but too proud to ask. We don't wait for folks to ask, we raffle guitars and give away food shopping gift cards.

Jason Weaver donated a beautiful 6string traveler we're drawing on in December. So here is a great idea you can use for your community in your area to give just in time to warm the hearts of many.
