President Bill let everyone know it was Club Assembly to update past and future projects
  1. Lemoyne Center Community Grant with McMurray is completed with a new freezer for the “feeding program” which has expanded all over the County and to upgrade the lighting in the Center, especially the gym area. A check was presented and the following attended the meeting: Andy Goudy, Tom Drewitz, Susan Price and Bill Price.
  2. Rich Podgurski gave an update on the Patriots Pavilion (anchor for 1stFriday and the Farmer’s Market). The company that prepared with new plantings and general cleanup around the Pavilion has been contacted and will follow up with fresh mulch and plantings as soon as the weather permits.
Community Pavilion update: Front staircase will be built with lumber from trees cut from the Park and will be completed by June 11. Other projects include lighting (still to be bid) and refinishing the floor. It is hoped 2 of the 3 will be completed for President’s Night on June 11.
  1. With resignation of Nan Sninsky the Club is in need of someone to take on the position of Vocation Service Director…soon.
  2. Bed for Bondo update given by Dorothy Tecklenburg and Brothers/Brothers will assist in getting the beds for Kenya for the Maternity Hospital. Let’s hope all works because Angeline has already gotten her ticket to travel there!
  3. Peanut Butter collection for the Food Pantries will end next week, Tuesday April 30.
  4. Student scholarship applications are in and being read by Board members. WCCF has finished selecting recipients for the Tracanna Award. All recipients and families will be recognized at the luncheon on May 28.
  5. Meeting scheduled with W&J and the food service to help settle concerns on room fees and meal costs. Details will be announced at our next meeting.
  6. The Last & Greatest District Conference will be held May 3&4 at 7-Springs. Never too late to register for a day or the full meeting. Our Club will have a team for the competition…Let the FUN begin.


  7. Scouting for Food campaign will end next week. See Ken Baker if you have a donation and the Club will match what Ken collects. Almost everything is needed EXCEPT frozen or perishable items or foods sold in glass containers. Help those in the Community who are challenged when it comes to having food on their table on a daily basis…food that is nutritious and filling. We are all blessed to have what we have and this is helping people we may not know but they may live on your street!


An email was sent to all members asking for time….May 2 and or May 3 to help at the Wild Things Game being put on for elementary children. The pay you would have earned ($50 for a shift from 9am to 2pm per day) will be donated by the Wild Things to our Pavilion Project.
If you are at all interested and we hope you are, please email Susan Price ASAP.
This will be running a cash register or putting a hot dog in a bun or a burger in a bun and setting it on the counter for the customer. This all happened on Wednesday but IF anyone is able to do this OR wanting to do this contact Susan. Thank you for considering this which is an easy way to help build the Pavilion Fund. Yes District Conference is the same weekend and if possible we would be there…tough to be in 2 places at once!
Thank you to any/all who will give consideration to helping and you will be rewarded!!

HAPPY $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Diane Ambrose: happy to let people know of the new collaboration with the Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning and Children’s Media. Early learning STM Tech Kits will be made available for educators. A Mini Maker Space will also be available at the Library.
Susan Priest: happy to celebrate and be happy NO COAT today
Rich Podgurski: happy to give $5.00 for a great Easter prepared/served by their children. Good day for MaryJo and Rich who just enjoyed the day with their “grandbabies”.
Brandi Miller: is happy Shane is home but….??? It’s an adjustment and Harley is really happy too.
John Hopper: still looking for redemption and selling Zonta tickets for $5.00 (can you help him get out of the doghouse?).
Ken Baker: supporting the Sunday jazz brunches at the President’s Pub; May 17 “Funky Fly Project” performing at Venue 54 from 7:00 to 9:30. Tickets are limited and the doors open at 6:30. This benefits the Washington After School Music Program.
Kathy Sabol: promoting Public Law Day Celebration on May 1 at 6:00 at the Washington Co.Courthouse presented by the Bar Association and the O-R. Theme for 2019 Law Day is “Free Speech, Free Press, Free Society”
Tom Drewitz: just happy to be with family over Easter especially those 3 grandchildren and add a dog to the mix.
Ulli Lange: happy to have $5.00 from Bill Allison who bet him Tiger wouldn’t win the Masters then the Bill Allison changed the bet…Bill would pay $5.00 IF Tiger finished in the top 10. Ulli then said he was passing Bill’s $5.00 to the Club and he was passing HIS $5.00 to the Club but actually the bet involved $10….
This all became very confusing and at one point Bill Allison was laughing rather hard and got red in the face….GREAT fun back and forth across the room even for those of us who don’t watch golf!
HOPE everyone reads this and looks for special inserts by the webmaster but then again maybe he’s just kidding?
