Secretary’s Note from Lisa Vail:  The Halloween Party was a great success.  So many fantastic costumes and amazing people made it a good time.  We even got a few new members.  Thank you so much to everyone that came and helped out.  It never ceases to amaze me how well a short skirt or sexy costume can keep so many guys undivided attention.

Region 20 is proud to say that we are now MRF, Awareness, and Legislative Supporters for 2014. A special thank you to Rich and Lynn Turchi for a very generous donation that made it possible for us to be Legislative Supporters.  Thank you to Mike Poage and John and Ellen Langworthy for the generous donation making it possible for us to be Awareness Supporters.  Thank you to Amy Frantz, Stephen Kuch, Tim Health and Kathy Robinson for the generous PAC fund donations.  Remember that every dollar counts. 

Region 20 wants to thank Dave Turner, Jane McMillan and Terry Brown Jr. for making the trip to the Shiawassee Meeting.

Cares & Concerns: November Birthdays: Lorenda Edwards, 4th; Travis Bilger, 6th; and Lisa Vail, 7th. At the Shiawassee meeting Tim Heath shared with us that Lynn Turchi’s parents were both terminally ill and that it was merely a matter of time until their departure.  Later that night, Lynn lost her mother and 7 days later her father. Please keep Lynn and her family in your prayers.

December 1 will be a combined meeting at the VFW Hall, G5056 S. Saginaw, Grand Blanc Twp. Meeting time: Officers @ 6pm and Members & Guests @ 7pm. (This is due to the Christmas Party on the first Sunday of the Month).

December 7 at 4pm is our Region 20 Christmas Party.  Please bring a dish to pass and a wrapped present that costs less than $10 for every child you bring with you.  Please be sure to put their name on the gift so Santa will know who to call up. Party will be at Consumers Energy Union Hall, 3505 Commercial Avenue, Burton, MI.

January 23-25 is Seminar (and Randy’s 50th birthday celebration). Come to Seminar and be prepared to have a whole lot of fun. (Information is on the website for reservations.)
