Old Business
          Anita reported on behalf of the Show committee that she will get a bid from the tent people what they will charge to put up a very large tent for us at the Show.  She also said she could not get the BBQ people because they will be preparing for another event.  However, they referred her to a group in Warsaw who could do it and she will give the information to Dave.  Barbara reported the church had 2 tents they were willing to loan the Club and she told the minister the Club would give them $100 for the loan. 

New Business 

          The Stover Animal Shelter is holding a fund-raiser June 2.  Guest Phyllis Dowdy told the group some of the highlights of the fundraiser and handed out flyers.  Vendors are welcome to come and sell their crafts.  The show is June 2 from 9am to 4pm at the Stover Community Center.  There will be plenty of room
          Barbara said the church will be erecting the tent they would loan us on June 1.  Members of the Club who are able should meet at the church parking lot at 12:30 to go with the group to the church’s picnic site so they can see the size of the tent and learn how to erect it.
          The Club Picnic will be our next meeting on June 26 at Liberty Park.  Larry reserved Shelter House #3 which is our usual site.  Come around 5:30pm and dinner will start at 6pm.  A motion was made by Lee and seconded by Diane for the Club to provide meat like we usually have.  Motion carried.  Anita volunteered to provide drinks.
