DUES FOR 2015
This is the time of year to pay your Dues! Membership dues for the Community Club are a whopping $10.00 per person, per year.
In one month we will go on daylight savings time. By then we will really see the days getting longer, "oh happy day". Those long, cold winter nights seems just that, long, very long but not much of the cold stuff. But who knows what might be ahead.
No matter what cold we have, or will have, people need money to pay for fuel. In our jar collection last month we had $25.10 . That will help pay for something.
Now for our food collection last month, it was great. Mostly for the help from George Maser, thank you George! There were some things from other members, Thank you to them also.
I have a receipt for 275 lbs of food. Hopelink used to value food at $1.50 a lb, but in the last year the tax people will only let them put the weight down, so I still guess $1.50 per lb.
See you on the 11th at the potluck. Remember there is always a food drive and the jar is always out.
Happy Valentines Day to all. Go SEAHAWKS! Next season.

The importance of club members and interested supporters of the community participating in club work parties cannot be stressed enough. Without the help more of this work will be farmed out which will raise the cost of our operations. Please remember this is your club house, you own it and it is up to you to help maintain it.

FROM THE MANAGER
Happy Valentine's Day! This has been a busy month at KCC. The Life Line Screening group rented the club for one of their annual community health screenings. There was a good representation from the community, and I am sure the screeners helped many residents discover problems with their bodies before those problems became crucial. Life Line Screening rents two times a year. They are also now offering a basic health physical if you are interested.
Thanks to Joe Loutsis for the gigantic donation of Arborvitae plants for our fence line. They were planted on January 19th by Joe and his helpers: Joe's Sons Nathan and Carter, David Evans and Daughters Sienna and Avery, Ed and Kathy Straw and Grandkids Elora and Grayson. Jason LaTourette was hired to do trenching and removing of the old concrete from the horseshoe pits. They will be adding a few more plants on the West side soon. This will give a little more privacy and maybe help with the road noise we experience. Thanks to you all for improving our "looks".
The 192 Brewing Co. on our street has been having a considerable increase in their business lately and it seems their customers like our parking lot on Friday and Saturday nights. One night our lot was completely filled with cars when I arrived to do some work at the hall. I did have to put reminders on each car regarding parking there, if I am expecting a renter to use those spaces.
I hope you ALL attend our Valentine Dance!!!
"A friend is like an eagle, you don't find them flying in flocks".
The nation's finest men and women who volunteer to serve in the armed forces are stationed all around the world to support friendly countries and protect our country's interest in those lands.
