Committee Reports: Party committee reaffirmed that the party will be held at the Affton Community Center on 12/19 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm. A food sign-up sheet was passed around for Pot Luck and it will be made available online by Jim Bubash for others to volunteer to bring dishes. Jim is looking for donations to offset at least part of the $250.00 cost to the club. Bill Collier suggested that we may want to start depending more on the money that we already have in our club account instead of requesting donations from club members. Contact Kathy Denton if you want to be part of the talent show or if you want a longevity award.
