CHAPTER 21 MINUTES-NEWSLETTER FOR DECEMBER 04, 2015
meeting was held Friday, December 11, 2015.
Instead, thirty-six (36)
members attended the annual Chapter 21 holiday party Friday, December 4th.
The table was
filled with smoked turkey, ham & all the trimmings (Happy
provided the delicious rolls). After the clean out at that table,
there were rich deposits of desserts which everyone rushed to. We
had some high grade fun and fellowship. For those who could not make
it, a new game was introduced by the party coordinators called, "PUNGO",
named after someone we all know and respect. It's
a take off of the numerical "Bingo"
game. Instead of numbers, you have to match prospector terms all
us should know. Had lots of fun & praises.>
was given a gift card & a Stanley multipurpose hammer/axe
from the club. Thanks go out to Paul and Becky Southerland. They
gifted everyone with a 1 oz .999 pure copper prospector coin in a
hard plastic case. These are really nice keepsakes with a gold miner
and donkey on the front, navigation gear on back. The
silent auction held during the party raised $159. It was down from
last year, but thank you to all who donated items for the cause. Cheers
to our party committee, Tammy Daley & Teresa Orosco for
organizing this end of the year event. It would have been helpful to
have a few more members involved, so really plan on being a part of
the committee in 2016.
Sunday, Dec. 6th, several members gathered in Calumet
with metal detectors to help find a woman's
lost 2 ½ ct wedding ring. Detected lots of canslaw (
aluminum cans from city mowing crews), but no ring. We may be
getting another member soon. The husband bought a metal detector just
for this search. Thanks to all who came to help. I'm
sure they appreciated the effort.
the party, everyone was asked to sign in and update their contact
information. Please let Teresa Orosco know if you move, change phone
numbers or email addresses. If you have joined GPAA, be sure to get
your number to us. We get points for new memberships and renewals.
Membership Kits available if you would like to join. Discount
offered if you enroll through the club at the monthly meetings. Next
meet will be January 9th, 2016 @ 7:30p weather permitting.
Lots of outings & events in the planning for 2016 .
