The club’s luncheon took place at Perkos Restaurant on January 9. Thirteen rigs were represented. A brief business meeting was held by our newly installed officers that included a free will offering to Cancer Aid. We also support Ronald McDonald House by collecting aluminum cans, plastics, etc. They are then turned in for cash which is presented to the organization.

Meetings are held on the second week of each month. Luncheons are in order for December, January, and February. The rest of the year we host campouts beginning on Monday and concluding on Thursday at a different location each month.
