Program: The Reverse Raffle
Karla Dwyer and the reverse raffle committee members provided updates and last minute instructions on what to expect this weekend at our reverse raffle.  We have sold 177 or 180 tickets and are certain to sell the remaining three by Saturday.  Please meet at the Moose Lodge tomorrow (Friday) at 5:30 PM if you are willing and able to help replace some damaged or missing ceiling tiles.  Zach S. will be there with a crew of people and supplies.  If you have supplies that you think might be helpful in that process bring them along.  The Reverse Raffle is Saturday, 13APR.  Karla has informed everyone what time they need to be there, and what their assignment is for the evening.  If you have questions at this point please contact her directly.  Karla thanked everyone for the efforts in this event so far, especially the committee members who work all year long on pulling this off.  We also owe a debt of gratitude to Karla, who was the Club President when we started this fundraiser and has been a key player in putting it together each year since. 


We had 75% of our membership at the meeting this morning!
April 16th is our day for the prayer breakfast this year and Janet G. is representing us as the speaker. 
The Annual Easter Week Community Prayer Breakfast will be held Monday April 15th through Friday April 19th at the First Christian Church Fellowship Hall located at 100 N High Street in Kirksville. Breakfast is served promptly at 7am each morning. No charge, but donations are accepted to cover food costs. Excess monies will be donated to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library Program.
