July 2019 General Membership Meeting, Tuesday July 16th, 2019

Monthly Membership Meeting All meetings start at 7 PM. Please arrive at 6:00 if you plan on eating. and ice cream at Hillside Farms—Shavertown


As an enticement to attend the Membership meetings we have tweaked the Oil Can raffle process to increase your chances of winning. Last night the raffle was for almost $900 and the person drawn was not present. In the future, you still have to be present to win and each member has to pay the $2 entry. The change is that there will now be a cap of $500, so with the new process at the next meeting there will be a drawing for $500 and a separate drawing for the balance (if it stays below $500). If we exceed $1000 there will be 3 drawings, two for $500, and a third for the remaining balance. So now there are even more reasons to attend the Membership meetings.


Two names were drawn at the June meeting. Thomas Helfst (163) and Jane Wise Bromback (11) Both were not present at the meeting.

Ride ForThe Red


On Tuesday July 2 the American Red Cross conducts annual Blood Drive hosted by Pocono Raceway.  The details of the event will follow this important announcement. As a part of this event Pocono Raceway offers spirited laps of the 2.5 mile famous Tri-Oval track lead by the tracks pace vehicle of a $10 per lap donation.  The Pocono Region will match your lap(s) donation dollar per dollar for up to 3 laps. That means that if you donate $30 and run 3 laps of the track the Region will double your donation. If your family member runs 1, 2, or 3 more laps we will match their donation too. I hope you will consider participating in the “Ride for the Red”.  Region members will be onsite at the track from Noon to 6 pm to sign you up for the matching donation. You do not need to donate blood to participate in the Lap Match but if you are going to donate you must run your laps first. We hope to see you there.
