Good day Exchange Club members. It looks like our run of great fall weather is about to come to an end based on the recent weather forecast. On the posi- tive side, this should put us in the right mood to start our major fundraiser of the year in two short weeks. So let me give you some details:

1. Saturday, November 22nd @ 8:30 a.m. We will kick things off with our Tree Lot set up. This is our first all-hands event where we move the Tree Lot racks, decorations, and accessories from the barn on Oenoke Ridge and set up the tree lot at Kiwanis Park.

2. Friday, November 28th @ 8:00 a.m. The next big all-hands event is Friday, November 28th when our trees and wreaths arrive. This is our usual delivery day, the Friday after Thanksgiving and our Presi- dent-Elect Dan McEvoy is managing the process this year. We are in fine shape to stack trees and start sales on the Saturday of that Thanksgiving weekend.

On Veterans Day, Tuesday November 11th, Jack Devlin led a rededication of the Freedom Shrine at Saxe MiddleSchool. Jackdeliveredanoverviewofthedocu- ments, their history, and the contribution veterans made to our country. We were well represented and thank you to our members that participated. (Editor’s note: our secretary in- formed the board last evening that there were 14 members in attendance.) Good stuff guys!
