No! No! November! Gone but not forgotten. I’ll bet some of you are still eating leftovers (I am).

Get ready here comes Santa & Hanukah Harry. One is riding a sleigh and the other one is driving a Cadillac. That’s right it’s December —— Already.

Don’t forget there is NO CLUB MEETING this month. We will meet again in January. Same place and time.

This is MY last reminder regarding our Club Xmas Party/Dinner. I am SURE that you will be gettings a “Rumble” with all the info etc. later this week.

Here is mine………… It is this Saturday December 6th. at Carvers Restaurant in Rancho Bernardo. The address and all info will be “Rumbled” to all of you who signed up to go. We will also be having our Xmas Gift Exchange (please no “gag gifts”). Gift values should be around $25. Only 1 gift per couple.

The Poway Cruisers will be having their Xmas Party/Dinner at Cavers Saturday night also. They will be there at 6PM. Maybe we can get them to buy us a round of drinks (yeah sure).

Following our Party/Dinner we are invited to Chauncey/Jan Newlins for dessert. Their address and directions will also be “rumbled” to you later this week.

On behalf of all Club members I would like to wish Jerry Niedens a speedy recovery from foot/toe surgery. Get well soon Jerry. Looking forward to seeing you and your “custom” shirts real soon.

Our November meeting/Romeo raffle was a great success. We had a great club turnout and we sold a lot of raffle tickets (thanks Joan). We had some great prizes to give away (thanks Trudy). I would also like to thank Debbie Johnson for donating some raffle prizes. And, of course a thank you to Vinnie Ciccia for donating his great art work. Next year maybe we can convince Dick Knutson to “donate” one of his “extra” cars to raffle off. I think hell should freeze over by then or the Raiders will win the Super Bownl. What do you think Dick?

Also at our November meeting we all brought canned goods to be donated to the Interfaith Charity. We donated over 200 lbs. of canned goods. A special thanks to our own “Santa’s Elves” Dick/Patty Knutson who delivered the canned goods to interfaith. I received a thank you letter from Interfaith last week. Thanks to all of you that donated the canned goods.

Don’t forget at our January meeting we will be drawing the 2 names/cars that will be on our Happening T-Shirt next year.

Speaking of the Happening —————– We are still looking for Sponsors and $$$ Donations. Remember a Sponsorship/Donation of $300 or more will get their name on our Happening T-Shirt.

Janaury is also Club dues month. Dues are $30 and payable by January 31st. Deadline for renewing your membership is March 15. After that we send Don Vito and his “friends” Ginao and Dino to “visit” you. This is also a good time to bring potential new members to our January meeting.
