Changeover Dinner:  this year's dinner hosted by incoming President Kim Miranda will be at the Sweet Briar Lodge (2888 Ridgeway Ave.) on Tuesday June 28th.  Cost is $50 per person for Buffet dinner and cash bar.
Strategic Plan:  President Lynn reviewed all the top priority items highlighted on her separate email to the club members.  There was a short discussion on each item along with volunteers to get started on the work needed to accomplish these tasks.  Some are short term and easy and others are longer term and require much more effort.  We will continue to review progress on each as they go forward.
Norb Rappl Memorial:  The club is planning for a memorial at Camp Eastman with a goal to have it ready by the Steak Roast in August.  Tom Kosanke is heading up this effort.
Beer Competition:  Our club will likely have 5-7 cases of beer to use as a fundraiser or sell at $50 per case.  If interested,  see Tom Kosanke.
Quote of the Week by Steven Wright:  A clear conscience is usually a sign of bad memory.
Program Notes
No Program tonight but catching up on the past several weeks courtesy of Terri Bastuk:
March 30th meeting: The Veterans in our club donated to Veteran's Outreach Center to Laura Stradley, Executive Director.  Laura Stradley is an Army veteran who spent eight years on active duty.  Just before leaving the service, Laura earned her Master of Science in Business Administration from Baker College. Laura has worked with veterans for more than a decade, and in 2015, she was inducted into the NYS Senate Veterans Hall of Fame.

Many contributions for:  Dave Shaheen & Lee Steinfeldt for their work on the Drawdown Dinner.   Tom Kosanke sold part of his business.  Doug Decker thanks those who have donated or will donate for the upcoming MS Walk.  Jim Kozlowski thanked Dave Shaheen for the Polish cookies he picked up at Dyngus Day in Buffalo.  Terri Bastuk sad to hear that her former boss passed away.  Congrats to Elena Barbone who ran a 1/2 marathon!
