SUPER BOWL PARTY SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 5TH, 2006 Doors open at 4:00 P.M. Make your plans now to attend this year’ Super Bowl Party at the club. This year should be even greater than the last few years as we have entertainment before the game and at half time. The event will take place in the main hall as usual where you can watch the game on a BIG SCREEN TV. Before the game you can start the party by enjoying the sounds of the Lisa Love Experience. This band plays all around the Greater Boston area and will play prior to the game and during the half time show. If you have any questions about the band just ask Jack Marshall or some of the officers of the club that has seen them perform. While listening to the band and watching the game you can enjoy the hot and cold buffet. And what makes this event even greater is that it is all for free. That is not all. Remember that we will be raffling off a brand new 42” HDTV Plasma TV. This is a beautiful TV and the raffle tickets are $20.00 per ticket. Tickets are now available at the members bar or you can contact Tim Hart. If you like football and you like to party then look no further, come on down to the club and have a great time. VALENTINE’S DAY DANCE SATURDAY FEBRUARY 11, 2005 Come join us for our Valentines Day Dance. Tickets are $20.00 per person and include a Chinese Buffet and Music by Tom Kierce’s Band.

DUES ARE DUE FOR 2006
The 2006 membership renewals stand at about 50%. That means that half of our club members can’t enjoy this club until they renew their dues. In past years, our renewal rates were much better as it would be at nearly 75% at the start of the New Year. The only way to maintain the high standards of this club is through the support of our members. I ask you as a brother member to renew your membership and remember if your dues are not paid in a timely manor you stand the chance of losing your club number that you have held for many years. You will find a renewal form below. Please use it and support this great club so we can carry on for another 50 years. Semper Fi... Keith Lordan, Membership Chairman
