Our 14th Annual Golf Outing was a huge success again in raising funds to send kids to the Karl E. Kelly Conservation Camp.  We hoped to have the actual report at this meeting.  Rob Seig, Chairman & George Schmeltzer, Chef  would like to thank everyone who had a hand in helping the club out that day.  Also, we want to thank all of our hole sponsors for their generous donations. And thank those winners who donated the winnings back to the cause.  We will begin soliciting for interested campers, who are in the 5th or 6th grade at our January 13, 2021 meeting.  So now is the time to see if those kids you know are interested.
