CLUB MEETING NOTES

The November 26th Club Meeting was called to order by President Frank at 7:05am. Club members present were Frank, Molly, Kim, Dan, and Glen. Our guest was Emily from UNH Circle K.

Kim gave a report on the District Fall Conference held last weekend in Portsmouth. She attended a number of workshops which she said were good. The club also made up welcome bags to give to attendees as they arrived at the conference. A collection of gloves, hats, and mitten was done at the conference with over 400 items collected which were donated to the Salvation Army in Porstmouth.

Molly reported on the Soup Kitchen. It was a slow night with only 18 meals served. Molly, Frank, Carolyn and two UNH Circle K'ers worked that evening.

Emily spoke about the Whittemore Concession from Tuesday evening's hockey game. Dan, Kim, Molly, Frank, Emily, and Rachel worked the game. Circle K earned $48 in tips.

President Frank reviewed upcoming events including and Salvation Army Bellringing and the Kittery and Portsmouth Holiday Parades.

For the meetinmg activity, there was a Thanksgiving Food Challenge where you had to write down a Thanksgiving food that started with each letter of the alphabet. In a fierce competition, Molly and Emily tied for the highest score. 

Dave had a chance at the 50/50 drawing and picked the five of clubs. The jackpot is at $135 with only 17 cards remaining in the deck.

The meeting concluded with a round of Happy Dollars and was adjourned at 8:00am.
