The Sunday October 5 meeting at Hickory Lounge in Owosso came to order at 2:02pm with 9 people in attendance.  Pledge of allegiance said and prayer by Boo Boo.

 

Secretary, Treasurers, Legislative, M&E, Care & Concerns and R.C. reports read and accepted.

Meeting came to close at 2:58pm.

 

The Monday October 6 meeting at the VFW Hall in Burton came to order at 7:03pm with 13 people in attendance. Pledge of allegiance said and prayer by Santa.

 

Secretary, Treasurers, Legislative, M&E, Care & Concerns and R.C. reports read and accepted.

Meeting came to close at 8:07pm.

 

In both meetings we discussed:

 

L.O. Report:   H.B 5438 Nathans Law/Awareness bill has passed through the senate and is now on the Governor Snyder’s desk.  Call and thank your reps and senators.  Call Governor Snyder and tell him that you want him to sign this bill.  Marte thanked Larry and John for stepping up to read her reports. Please keep in mind that elections are coming up.  The Rider has a list in the October issue of who supports ABATE and who doesn’t.  Please vote.  Also our officer elections are upon us and Marte would like to remain the Region 20 L.O. but she encourages others to step up as we are one region with two counties and an additional L.O. would be a benefit to our region.

 

Care and Concerns:  Oct. birthdays; Guy (Bastard) O’Berry 3, Charles Short 4, Jeremy Langworthy 5,  Tim (Snap) Heath 14, Rich (A**Hole) Turchi 18 and Terry (Boo Boo) Goyette  22.  Please pray for Papa T’s health.

Member of the Year for 2014 is Lisa Vail. (Note from Lisa:  I am truly honored and blessed to be part of ABATE Region 20. I am so grateful to all of our members and how hard we all work to make our Region and the State so successful. I believe in what we do and I know that it needs to be done. I can’t do what I do without all of your help.  So thank you for all that you do).

 

Next meetings are November 2 at Hickory Lounge in Owosso at 2pm and November 3 at VFW Hall in Burton at 7pm.

 

Remember that nominations for officer positions will be submitted at the November meetings so if you want to run for any officer position that is the time to speak up.  There will only be one December Meeting on the 8th at the VFW Hall in Burton, because we will have the vote for officers that day.
