Servers and Kitchen Staff
Thanks to members, we gave more than $800 to our faithful server, Andy, and the kitchen staff. Other clubs are envious of our facility and great attention we get from the staff. We are most grateful for their great sevice and friendship.

Combined December and January Board meeting on Jan. 11
Because of the holiday schedule, we will have the next Board meeting on Jan. 11. If you are a Board member, please have your report ready. If yo9u cannot attend, please give your report to President Stewart. Just a reminder ALL members are invited to attend the Board meeting and get attendance credit toward your “100% Engagement”.
On Sunday our first Hero’s Scholarship was announced in honor of our own hero Evelyn Hayes. Each year we will present a $2,000 scholarship for a young person to attend school and study in the career of a Hero.
Evelyn was selected as our first Hero for a scholarship to be presented due to her outstanding service to our country. She joined the U.S. Army Reserve Corps in 1979 with her first assignment to a Station Hospital in West Hartford, CT, followed by a faculty position at USAR School and various leadership roles in training and administration. She also served at Supreme Headquarters Allied Power Europe, Fort Jackson, and Walter Reed Hospital. She retired with 23 years of military service with the rank of Colonel. She then went on to a second full career of teaching in the Nursing Program at UD. She is OUR HERO of2023.
