Members of the Leo Club and the members of the PA Lions All State Band along with their families will also be invited guests. Leo Club members will oversee the kids’ games. Members are requested to bring a covered dish (vegetable,
salad, fruit, dessert, etc.). The club will provide chicken, beverages and eating utensils.

2019 FAIR: We’ll be open from Wednesday, August 14, through Sunday, August 26, with the same schedule as in previous years. A volunteer sheet will be available at the family picnic, the June 27 meeting and remaining monthly meetings prior to the fair. We hope all able bodied members will volunteer for at least four or five shifts. Family members and friends are most
welcome. Several of our members have age and health issues so we’ll need more volunteer time from all members.

NEW MEMBERS: Our current membership is 64 with 28 being 70 or older by the end of 2019. Hopefully, members will begin to recruit new members, especially younger ones for the fair. Please note that women are most welcome and needed. HATS & SHIRTS: See Ed Ungvarsky if you need to order tee or polo shirts and hats. All workers in the fair stand MUST wear a hat, and it would be great to see our members with club shirts and hats. Don’t delay since it takes time to receive them.

NEW OFFICERS: Please be present at the June 27 meeting for installation. We won’t be installing officers at the picnic.

ATTENDING MEETINGS: You can be more informed with the club’s activities when you attend the monthly meetings! We review information that is not included in the newsletters, particularly regarding financial information and donations.
