As usual, our Club has a lot going on!  Here is a rundown on what is happening in the next couple of weeks:
June 17 - Tomorrow - There is a decorating session for casino night beginning at 4:00 in the back room at Pagosa Brewing.  This is a lot of fun!!!
June 18 - This Tuesday - There is Black Jack Training and practice in the back room at Pagosa Brewing & Grill starting at 5:00 PM.  I am sure this will be a lot of fun too!  Come get all practiced up and ready for Casino Night.
June 19 - This Wednesday - Radio interview with Bob Eggleston about the Casino Night.  Runs about at 8:30.  Listen in!
June 19 - This Wednesday - there is a meeting to go over registration for the 4th of July Parade starting at 2:00 pm at JoAnn Lairds home.  You have already been notified if you are working in this area, but this is a reminder.  
June 20 - This Thursday - there is no noon meeting as we will be cooking and serving for Loaves & Fishes
June 21 - This Friday - Las Vegas Casino Night.  The mighty craps table move will start out the day.  Watch for further email instructions regarding what time to be there for decorating and getting ready for the big night.  We will also be taking everything down that night so plan on bringing some work clothes and comfy shoes
June 24 - A week from Tomorrow - Decorating session for the Installation Banquet.  Come help us get the decorations ready for a great installation party!
June 27 - A week from Thursday - Installation Banquet.  Drinks and social hour begins at 5:30 pm.  Have you registered for the event?  If you have trouble, just email me and I will register you and your guests.  We need a final count for the caterer by Monday, June 24.
July 4 - The following Thursday - The 4th of July Parade.  Be on the look out for more instructions regarding the last minute details for this as well.
JoAnn was there to bring us all up to date with the arrangements for the 4th of July Parade.  There is a really great article, written by JoAnn as well as an Editorial by Terri House on this subject in this week's paper.  If we all try to read these and the ones that will follow in the next two weeks,  on the day of the Parade we will know all the answers ALL THE TIME!  Which is a good thing when we are coordinating such a big event!  
Our speaker last week was Andrea Phillips, the Manager of the Town of Pagosa Springs.  It was interesting to hear about how the Town is structured and managed as well as about some of their priorities for the upcoming year.
