Well this is the second year in a row that we have had abundant rain in the spring and early summer. Crops were late getting in the field this spring, but they appear to be catching up. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer! July is a busy month for Yellow Thunder with activities in conjunction with the Lodi Fair. Please see below for details and contact the event coordinators if you can help out!
Lodi Agricultural Fair Chicken Dinner - The annual Lodi Agricultural Fair will be held July 10-13, and Yellow Thunder will again be hosting the Saturday evening chicken dinner on July 12. Chicken dinners will be served from about 3:30 p.m. until the chicken is gone. Last year, we cooked and served over 1,000 pounds of chicken. We especially need additional volunteers from 6:00 p.m. to the end; however, we still have vacancies for the 3:00 to 6:00 pm shift. Please contact us via cell, Kris (576-5178), Gail (575-7961), or email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can assist. Also, this is a great opportunity to get youth involved, so bring your kids, and if you can recruit others, we’d greatly appreciate it. Pass along our contact info., and have them contact us directly.
Lodi Agricultural Fair Beer Tent - Yellow Thunder will also be assisting in selling refreshments in the beer tent on Friday, July 11. Volunteers for this event are well under control; however, a few spots remain open. If you can assist, please contact Sheri Hicks (575-8368) or email her at email@example.com.
July Meeting and August Meeting/Cookout - The July meeting will be held on Tuesday, July 8th, at Remi’s Thirsty Moose, 7pm. The August 12th meeting and cook-out will, once again, be held at Dennis Davis (“Turkey’s”) residence in his spacious shed in Harmony Grove. The grills will be hot at 6:00 p.m., and the meeting will begin at 7:00 p.m. Yellow Thunder will be supplying brats and hamburgers for the August meeting. If you want something else on the grill, please bring it, along with a dish to pass, your beverage of choice, your own table service, and a lawn chair to sit on during the meeting. To get to Turkey’s, drive into Harmony Grove on County Hwy V, turn right onto River Road just past the 2nd 35 mph sign, turn left on Tonja, then right onto Airport Dr. The address is W10585 Airport Drive, which is on the right about a half block from Tonja; green house with a green shed.
Membership News - All memberships expire August 31st, and that means that the 2014-2015 membership drive is now under way. A mini-application blank is included on the back of this newsletter, and full-page application blanks will be sent out with the next newsletter, or you can download and print one from our web site, if you prefer.
Good Samaritan Birthday Party - Yellow Thunder will again be sponsoring the monthly Good Samaritan Birthday Party on the afternoon of August 4th at 2:00 p.m. Florence Bilkey is chairing this excellent community service function that many of the Good Samaritan residents look forward to each year. Florence is looking for volunteers to assist the day of the event. If you can spare some time, please contact Florence at 592-4846.
Miscellaneous - The attendance fund winners for the June meeting were Jon and Carrie Ballweg. Since they were not present at the meeting, the money carries over to the next meeting.
