Things To Know

HAPPY NEW YEAR! And, let us welcome our newest Members – Charlie Devany and Vic Scire

Since the next Board meeting has been pushed back to January15, 2002, there is no additional new information for the Jargon, which allows this issue to be published a week early. The Board is reminded that the January Board meeting will be held in the Library Conference Room.

The Cranbury Lions Annual Holiday Party was held at the Doral Forrestal on Friday, December 14th. For those of you who were unable to make it, I am sorry to report that you missed one great party! Thanks to Lions Frank Marlowe and Bob Virgadamo for their efforts in organizing the party and obtaining the venue. Special thanks to Lion Don Herr for his help in obtaining an additional discount from the Forrestal.

The Toys for Tots Program was a resounding success! On December 17th the Marines made the final pick-up of the 739 toys, dolls, games, and stuffed animals we collected from the four participating “drop locations” – The Post Office, First Constitution Bank (Village Branch), PNC Bank, and Princeton Lightwave, Inc. A laurel and hardy handshake to Lion Mike Kaiser, for his assistance in picking up the toys, in Ewing, that were destined for the Cranbury Lions’ sponsored group, Better Beginnings Daycare Center in Hightstown. And, once again, an “Attaboy” to our Santa, Lion Roy Reinhardt, for appearing and giving gifts to all the children at Better Beginnings.

Scout Troop 52 will be going on a ski trip on Sunday, February 3, 2002. Since we are the Troop sponsor, we have been invited to go. Lift tickets for the day will be half price (last year that was $23). Anyone wishing to go can contact Lion Joe Carroll before January 27.

Reminders

Many of you have e-mail capability, but are still receiving The Jargon via regular mail. Please notify the Editor of your e-mail address by phone or via e-mail at BobV@cranbury.org. Your e-mail address will not be distributed outside of the Club, and will only be used for The Jargon and other necessary Club business. Your participation in this program benefits all of us. Thank you.

Any member who learns of the sickness or death of another member, or a member’s family, or any other similar incident or emergency should contact Bob Virgadamo to activate the “phone tree”, so that all members may be notified.

Let’s help our Program Chair, Frank Marlowe. We all come in contact with someone interesting on a regular basis; when you do, or if you have any suggestions for speakers, please give Frank a call.

Advertising has become a major fundraiser, and fundraising is everyone’s responsibility. Please provide a helping hand by directing all advertising leads to Lion Bob Virgadamo on-line at BobV@cranbury.org.
