Tim’s Tidbits

Once again our old world kept on a turning and the stars, sun and moon stayed in their places so here we go again. Each month in these pages, I try very hard to find and pass on information about your rights, legislation, and the whacky things that go on around us. Some months I find a lot to pass on and some months not so much. But there is always something going on that is worthy of note. So let get going.

At each general membership meeting the member number of a member is drawn from the BIG barrel. If that member is current on his/her dues and present at the meeting, then they are rewarded with money. The amount is based on what has accumulated in the POT-OF-GOLD up to that time with a maximum of $500.00. If they are not present then they get the crying towel. At the July meeting, member number 191 belonging to Curtis Lyon was drawn. He was not in attendance at the meeting and so lost out on collecting $500.00. So Curtis it is boo hoo and the crying towel to you. The pot will remain at $500.00, for the next general membership meeting this Tuesday August 2nd.
