CHRISTMAS PARTY DEC. 9TH
Get your tickets now for our Annual Christmas Party on Saturday, December 9th at the Hinton Center.
6:30 pm - Gathering / Social Time

Be sure to bring a wrapped gift for our “White Elephant”gift exchange..... it’s great fun. BE CREATIVE!
(We draw numbers for selection of gifts. $10. max… however, we encourage home made or thrift shop items. Any gift may only be “stolen” 3 times during the exchange. A re-gifting opportunity!)
TICKETS ARE $20. PER PERSON, and are available at Southern Auction on Hwy 64 or by calling Roni Davis 389-6890, Sharon Hechter 557-5007, or Be Miller 360-6300 (afternoons and evenings only).
BRING YOUR FRIENDS TOO!
We are trying something new this year that has been very successful for other groups…… a gun raffle.
If we raise sufficient funds, we will avoid the heavy workload of our usual biannual auction…. so let’s sell a ton of tickets on this beautiful HENRY RIFLE. Tickets are $3.00 each or 2/$5.00.
Ask any board member.
Robert Caldwell, Chairman
Clay County School administration was notified on Friday November 3rd that Clay County Schools was awarded the Needs Based Public School Fund. It is the plan of Clay County Schools to use these funds to build a new school for the primary grades.
The plans for the primary school is to have a cafeteria, 21st century classrooms and a gymnasium. The estimated cost for the new school is 13.6 million, possibly slightly more. In order to qualify for this funding, the county had to certify a local fund match slightly over 3 million.
It is my understanding that only two or three Tier One (based on county economic considerations) designated counties will be awarded these funds this year.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT OUR NEXT REGULAR MONTHLY MEETING IS IN FEBRUARY 2018. OUR CHRISTMAS PARTY TAKES THE PLACE OF BOTH OUR NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER MEETINGS… AND WE ARE “DARK” IN JANUARY. WE HAVE HAD TO CANCEL THE JANUARY MEETING SO MANY TIMES DUE TO BAD WEATHER THAT, SEVERAL YEARS AGO, WE DECIDED TO WAIT UNTIL FEBRUARY.
WE ARE PLANNING A VALENTINE’S PARTY FOR OUR FEBRUARY MEETING… THIS WILL INCLUDE A COVERED DISH SUPPER, WHERE MEMBERS WILL BRING A DISH TO SHARE, AND WE WILL PROVIDE MEAT.
IT WILL BE A GREAT WAY TO KICK OFF THE NEW YEAR.
WE WISH YOU A HAPPY THANKSGIVING, A MERRY CHRISTMAS, AND A PROSPEROUS NEW YEAR……. and we look forward to seeing you on Dec. 9th!
Tommy Davis, Chairman
