PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Well, another year has passed and we will be installing a new President for the 2017-2018 year. Barry Burgason will be taking over the president position and the duties that it demands. Myself, and the Board of Directors will assist him in any way we can.

At the June supper meeting it will be worker appreciation night with steak and chicken on the grill. The rest of the meal will be pot luck, so bring salads, your favorite dish or dessert to share with everyone.

During the month of June we would like to have a cleanup day at Stetson camp and land. There will be brush, fallen trees and trash that has been left on our property, so if you have an ATV and a small trailer would be great as well as pickups.

The Club is looking for a volunteer to take over the Gun Show starting in 2018. Charlie Rumsey will help with training that person.

I would like to thank everyone for your support during my time as President this year. It has been truly an honor to be a part of such a great organization.

Thanks,
Deane
