1st VP Chris Bramwell:

Our pancake breakfast was a huge success and we fed 327 guests (one more than last year).

Chris thanked kitchen crew Dave Huntamer, Dick Nasif, Don Anthony, Bob Acker and Gary Robinson, Paul Tremblay, Sharie Hoops, Ron Black, Roger Stebleton, Henry Coleman and Kathy, Len Blottin, Rocky Collura, our LEO club, and special Kudos to Sandy Glas for all the great publicity.

The 50/50 drawing brought $365 to the club, John Galkowski was the winner and he gave back $165 of his winnings….very generous, thank you Lion John.


Membership Chair Cathy Bailes:
 Our club currently has 70 members and is 2nd in the District in membership however the San Diego Forever club numbers 68 with several more waiting to be inducted.  We need more great members not only to have more hands for our projects and to share our good times with but to ensure we don’t loose our 2nd place status in the District!



 1.  A short gun joke  2.  Two nuns shopping for beer

Both jokes were great, thank you PP Ray

Gary S $5 gone on yet another trip to Vegas and missed the breakfast

Cathy $5 for a good breakfast and she is selling raffle tickets for her church fund raiser

Bruce $60 some $ for missing the breakfast and some $ as he found a great plumbing supply store and when he went to pay for the part he needed he was told to pay for it with a Happy $

Paul W $5 excited for Ed Waymire’s upcoming operation for a new “ear antennae”.  Ed will be having the same operation as Paul T, and in November he can ignore us out of his right ear also.

Bob G $5 missed the breakfast as he and Yvonne were at the Elks 50th Annual Rally in Hemet as a fund raiser for children and the group of over 200 rigs raised over $25,000.

Paul T $20 won last week’s 50/50 (giving back today) and due to his posting our breakfast flyer on his FB page his 2 sisters, daughter and grandkids, a high school friend and a previous work friend all attended.  Yes publicity does make a difference.
