August 2023 Newsletter 

Fair Show went off pretty good, we had plenty of members to help but we had to give out trophies a little early because of bad thunderstorms coming in.  Fair Board was really worried people could get hurt. We got the awards handed out and the show torn down and trailer packed up in record time, many thanks to all that helped that day.

Next event is the Honorflight at the White Mule Winery Rosebud Missouri 12:00 to 6:00pm  we will set up about 8:00am. 

We need about 10 members to work this event. Setup to 12:00 just a few, the main need is to have people at the registration table 12 to 5pm for selling T-shirts, poker run, etc.  And the BIG need is to have plenty of people when the silent auction is over so we can get people the stuff they bid on quickly.  Kenny said he may need somebody to sit at a poker run spot, the bars and restaurants all complain they don’t have enough help to hand out the cards. Kenny also reports he is getting some good cash donations, Bob and Gary’s work made another big donation this year, but Kenny still needs items for the silent auction to sell the day of the event, so if you have something or can get a donation  let Kenny know.  573-368-8336  Kenny and Sharon have been doing the majority of the work planning this event lets help them out. 

On other issues Moose club will help next year with our cruise-ins on mainstreet with a street dance, they did not have time to get the OK this year from the main Moose organization.
