After the holidays the need for food does not end.  On January 16th, we hosted a free community dinner at our clubhouse, in conjunction with OOB365.  We served over 200 meals.  It featured a fully-dressed turkey dinner or spaghetti & meatballs.  We can not forget the homemade bread by member, Sharri MacDonald!  Thank you to all of the volunteers that came out and assisted.

We collected about 50 pairs of eyeglasses for recycling.  Thank you to those who participated.  We voted in 4 new members!  Welcome, Sharri, Jeanne, Jason & Courtney.  As always throughout the year, we supported the Methodist Church and their food pantry with a donation.  Merry Christmas & Happy New Year to all!

Thanks to everyone who came out and joined us at the 2010 Old Orchard Beach Memorial Day Parade!  It was a blast as usual and a great way to kick-off the summer season.

A small group of us marched in the parade - always a delight.  We tossed candy to the kids on the sides of the street and they loved it as usual.  It would not be as enjoyable without the enthusiasm of the on-lookers.

June through August our club adjourns for the summer season as we are all busy little beavers.  We start our regular meetings again in September.  Join us for our annual raffle held during the car show in downtown Old Orchard Beach.  The dates for this years event are September 17th and 18th.
