We will continue our fundraising efforts by selling Club’s Choice food in the fall, and in the spring we will sell pastry puffins.

Community Service:

We plan to continue our “Trick or Treat for the Food Pantry” service project, when members are asked to collect non-perishable food items for our local Tecumseh and Cook food pantries.  These donations are counted, sorted, and delivered to both food pantries.  We also plan to continue assisting our Chamber of Commerce with the Christmas on the Square Celebrations, which are held in December.
