First of all - WELCOME BACK LINDA!
Committee reports from last week's meeting -
Vocational - Mike Hamilton encouraged everyone to sign up for teams, donations for the silent auction and lane sponsors for the upcoming Bowling Bash on Friday, February 22.
Club Service - Marti reported that their committee is planning the holiday party for mid-January and asked for ideas on where to hold it.
Membership - Mike Hartwig gave a report for Tom Downs.  When members bring a guest for breakfast who is a prospective member, there will be no charge.  There is a charge for friends and family.
Community Service - Kevin Jasa and Marie Pipes working as co-chairs are searching for ideas to help a needy family for Christmas.  They will have more information on this tomorrow.

International Committee - They are working on some ideas and will report at a later date.
Our program for tomorrow will be presented by Corinne Lambert.
