                              Bengston will host a kick-off meeting at his house on Monday, February 7
                              at 5:00. This will be Bengston’s final year as chair of the fundraiser. He’s
                              brought the event from a minor $1000 fund raiser to a major $5,000 fund
                              raiser during his years of managing the event. Bill handed out the duty
                              roster, and asked for anyone who would like a change to contact him. We
                              were also given copies of last year’s place mat, to solicit advertising for
                              $50.00 per space.

                              JOE RAINES went to St. Raphael’s Hospital last week for an angiogram
 District 7980 Governor:      checkup and remained for a surprise Quadruple By-Pass Surgical
       Pamela Atkins          procedure. He says everything went smoothly. By now he's probably at
       (New London)           Elim Park Health Center for "a few days rehab" before he goes home,
     Asst. Governor:          none the worse for wear and in excellent spirits. Good luck Joe, we'll be
                              glad to see you back soon. -miller
