I hope you and your families had a most enjoyable summer. Our next meeting will be held on Friday, September 20 at 8m. Many thanks to all who attended the NYS convention in Saratoga in July. Unfortunately, Chris Gallagher was forced to cancel our Saratoga trip in August but I’m sure it will be back bigger and better than ever next year. We’ve got a really busy season coming up: Brendan Moore’s testimonial weekend starts on Friday, October 4th, our picnic is finally back on Saturday October 12, and the ladies are hosting a Dancing Like the Stars fundraising extravaganza on Friday, October 18. We’re installing a new floor in the hall on September, 23 and will be looking for volunteers to help with some of the grunt work. Read on in this newsletter for more info on these events and more.
