Presidents Report - ARTHUR GREEN
Marlboro Show & Other Information
The show was sold out again, all 63 tables were full and the attendance was good with over 200 participants. The show continues to be a staple of the club and makes a profit to help offset our operating expenses and advertising budget with the help of the raffle. Thanks again to all who bought tickets and donated items. Everyone seemed to have a good time. Thanks again to the Cain Family for all of their efforts and another fine show!
Our next show will be at East Windsor, CT on the 1st of March followed by Marlboro MA on the 29th of March. These one day shows provide a good time for all in attendance so reserve your table early and make the whole process easier on the facilitator, this has been especially a problem in Marlboro, see Calendar page for complete information.
