At this time of year it's good to take a step back and give "Thanks" for our blessings. Our club has much to be thankful for. It has been a wonderful season of driving. We give "Thanks" for the all the people that hosts our drives, the cooks that prepared food for the potlucks, all the club members that support the events, all the time and effort spent in making the club successful. These are just a few of the many things our club is thankful for. We all should take a few minutes and make a list, it will surprise you how many things we some times take for granted.
 
I will include the new dates for the meetings for 2012, as well as times and place. In planning for 2012, we try to stay with the second Sunday of the month, and meetings are usually in Arlington, from 2:00 to 4:00 P.M.. Once I get the information finalized by the Board of Directors, I will report it in the article.
 
If anyone has information to put in the article, please email Roger Higgins Jr. at higgy122@msn.com or contact number is 740-251-7193.
 
This is a good time to start thinking about hosting a drive for next year. We usually discuss tentative plans at the January meeting, so as thing are winding down for 2011, they are gearing up for 2012. 
 
Next month I will be doing a 2011 recap, so please watch for that article.
 
Well, this will do it for this month. I would like to wish everyone a safe and wonderful Holiday Season!
