Membership Appreciation Day

Posted by Raymond Goin on June 30, 2015 at 8:10 AM Comments comments (1)

     A large crowd showed up on Sunday June 28th to help celebrate our MEMBERSHIP APPRECIATION day. Well over 90 people were in attendance. Lots of Families were there to help us celebrate. It was a great day, the weather was dry for a change.

     The grounds looked great , the clubhouse was very comfortable, and the folks seemed very happy with the way the club has handled itself. Burgers, hot odgs, baked beans, dessert, and lemonade or tea were served to all of our members. Lots of Door prizes and the Ruger raffle were held

     I want to thank everyone who played a part in getting the day going. Amanda, Ralph, Ken, Jerry, Waylena, Ken, Tom, Mike, Jim, Jeff,Tricia, and anyone else I have forgotten. It takes a tremendous amount of labor (& love) to run the Foosland Sportsmens Club. I greatly appreciate all of you, and the work you all put in.

     Thanks to all of the Members. Here's looking forward to another great year at OUR CLUB!!
