President Shipley shared the need to bring in white socks for a drive she is participating in for the district. She also asked the club to vote on the posters for the Peace Poster Contest.  the winner was Kaylyn Delph and the prize was 50.00.


President Shipley called upon Doris Kaifa to share the Celebrate Life Program which is part of Good Samaritan Ministries and involves having birthday celebrations for people in the community – many of whom have no family or have never had a party in their honor. This is an amazing program and several success stories have come from it.  She talked about the need to find grant funding or local donations to keep the program going.


With no further business to come before the club the meeting was adjourned.


Respectfully Submitted,


Tim Tapp – Secretary.
