This was a round table meeting in the main dining room at the Thayer. An interesting discussion re: possible fundraisers for the upcoming year. (Fruit, dinner theatre, etc.)


Winter’s Here! – Both the Episcopal & Catholic Church thrift shops will be operating 2nd & 4th Wed. of month. (Have any worm clothing for them?)

Repeat -Phil Brillante’s Quote: - “Interact did great job during football season. Also, Dave Sutton is at war again (the penny war) at the High School. Classes compete raising pennies.”

Dave Weyant’s  “Bell Ringers” showed on December 18 & 19 at Key Food. He will reveal results at the meeting.


Jerry Sheehan’s Pushcart: – Jerry’s pushcart rolled into 2005 still loaded for bear! He still has Ben Birillo’s artistically created Statue of Liberty Scarves as well as shirts, jackets etc. If you forgot someone for
