From our President and Shell Show Chairperson, Karen Lelli
Last month, we were very lucky to welcome new member, Cookie Oliver, from Cape May Court House. I hope the trend continues and we are able to keep our membership growing. Thank you, Cookie.
I've ordered the ribbons and trophies and I've already received the shell show's first exhibit application from John and Darlene Schrecke. It's my hope that everyone exhibiting will follow suit and get the applications to me as soon as possible.
It is important to show your support for our show by volunteering to help. Please be prepared to sign up at the next meeting so that Mary Still can make a schedule. Last year there was a little confusion and there were too many on the first day of the show and not enough for the second or third. It seems that Sunday is the day we needed the most help. Please keep this in mind.
Don't forget that advertising is the key to a great show. Who will come if they don't know about it? So please, take a flyer and make copies if you can, and distribute them all over your town. Let's make sure we have the best show ever!
And please, I hope everyone is planning to join us for the wonderful presentation that Dr. Bradley Stevens has prepared for our club. Please show him your support and attend our June 4th meeting.
I haven't had any calls yet, so if anyone would like to help with the desserts and soft drinks, I will be very grateful. As usual, I'm planning on baking some goodies and I'll supply the paper products.
I'll see you at the June 4th meeting.
Happy Shelling, Karen
