During the business portion of the meeting, the members voted to run several 50/50 drawings to make money for their contribution to the Bryson Park Project. The club also voted to donate $100 to Zuma Park for the loan of their grill during the Lake Festival. Hans Rehrmann told the club he has been contacted about the Healthy Kids Day in Coldwater. If there is no conflict with the club’s Winter Warmth Coat Day, members have volunteered to help with this program from Mercer Health.
