My, my, my how time flies when you are having fun. The month of October, which Marianna gave us off from bring food is done and gone.
 
The holidays will be here before we know it and yes the kids need food.  Marianna is asking us to bring food that we would have at our own Thanksgiving Dinner, eg:  sweet potatoes, green beans, regular potatoes, gravy mix or canned, cream of mushroom soup, onions, dressing fixings and don’t forget the fixings for the pies.  Any heavy food will be appreciated. 
 
Then after Thanksgiving there is Christmas, then after Christmas as Marianne has said before, “The kids still have to eat”.  So please check your pantries for extra cans or jars and take advantage of the BOGO’s. Our goal is way over a ton this year.
 
Thank you all in advance for all you contribute.
 
 
 

 
 
On October 22, 2016, four of our members plus a spouse (Nancy & Peter Kizius, Bill Irish, Carolyn and our President Clark) headed to the Roy McBean Boys and Girls Club.  We also had Pine View Key Club Lt. Governor Sam and Brie, Booker High School sent several football players, the Downtown Club had JoRita taking names plus Barbara Yong, Terry, Larry, Joe, Vern Buchanan’s son and a few others.  There were also several staff members giving us a good group of people to do the work.
 
Our mission was to clear and clean the large lot next to the Boys and Girls Club.  The lot was very over grown and had to be cleaned before the mowing crew could even start.  There were many treasures found:  3 bicycles, a stroller, broken TV, shopping cart, upholstered chair, mysterious broken plastic parts, along with 4 or 5 bags of cans, bottles and plastic bags.  The big prize went to the full sized box springs. A cherry picker  was brought in to cut and clear palm fronds.  We filled a dumpster and had still had piles and piles of trash on the lot. 
 
It was a beautiful day to do this kind of work because of the mild temperature.  We were done by 11am and then we had pizza. 
 
A big thank you to all that helped that day.
