Summer is here! Rain has been plentiful this spring, crops and gardens are doing great, and now it’s time to get really busy, if you’re not already really busy. Yellow Thunder would even like to contribute to your busy schedule with upcoming activities in conjunction with the Lodi Fair. Please see below for details and contact the event coordinators if you can help out! We would really appreciate it!
Lodi Agricultural Fair Chicken Dinner - The Lodi Agricultural Fair will be held July 7-10, and Yellow Thunder will again be hosting the Saturday evening chicken dinner on July 9. Chicken dinners will be served from about 3:30 p.m. until the approximately 8:00 pm. We typically cook and serve over 1,000 pounds of chicken. We especially need additional volunteers from 6:00 p.m. through clean-up. Please contact Gail Krause via cell/text to 575-7961, or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can assist. Kris Krause can also be reached via cell at 576 5178. 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 volunteering in the beer tent on Friday, July 8. Please contact Sheri Hicks (575-8368) or email her at email@example.com if you’d like to help out.
July and August Meetings/Cookouts – The July meeting and cook-out will be held on Tuesday, July 12, at Schoepp’s Resort. This is a change from the Calendar of Events. (Correction from original newsletter.) The August 9th meeting and cook-out will be held at Dennis Davis (“Turkey’s”) residence in his spacious shed in Harmony Grove. 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. Yellow Thunder will be supplying brats & hamburgers at each of these meetings, along with tableware & condiments. Grills will be hot at 6:00pm, eat at 6:30pm, with meetings at 7:00pm. If you prefer something else on the grill, please bring it, along with a dish to pass, own beverages, and it wouldn’t hurt to throw in a lawn chair.
Membership News – All memberships expire August 31st, and that means that the 2016-2017 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. Avoid issues with getting your trail pass, and renew early!
Good Samaritan Birthday Party – Yellow Thunder will again be sponsoring the monthly Good Samaritan Birthday Party on August 8, at 2:00 p.m. This is an excellent community service function that many of the Good Samaritan residents look forward to each year. Yellow Thunder provides ice cream for everyone, and birthday cards and flowers for each resident who has a birthday in August. Good Sam provides the cake. If anyone is available to help or would like additional information about the event, please contact Rose Holerud at 608-592-4178.
Miscellaneous – The attendance fund winner for the June meeting was Dean Brincks. Since he was not present, the money carries over to the next meeting.
