It is important for the club to receive membership dues by Feb.15 in order to allow sufficient time to determine and process the number of new members to accept into the club. There is a considerable amount of administrative work involved in this process which as you are aware is done by board members who volunteer their time. Please be cooperative by getting your payments in on time. Questions should be addressed to Membership Chairman,
Ed Leffingwell Update
Update from Linda Leffingwell dated 1/21/2015: Ed had sugery at 4 today and is resting well and had a nice dinner. We're both exhausted. There is no problem with the kidney and there was still alot of clotting in the bladder which was cleaned out. There was a small tumor which was removed and thought to be the cause of the bleeding. The doctor doesn't think it's cancer, but it is being biopsied.
Ed should be released tomorrow or Friday and is comfortable but a little disoriented. With his Parkinson's and demetia, any trauma takes it's toll.
Anyway, let's hope that this is the end of this saga.
Thanks again for all your parayers and good wishes.

Chris Andreasen (2nd from right) was the first club president and the last playing member of those pictured. Our thanks to Mike Kelly for providing the article.
