The club will have a booth at the Troy Strawberry Festival again in 2009 and we are looking for volunteers to work. Please contact Krista Bowman if you can help out.

The 2009 Community Show was discussed and we will not have the show if there are not enough volunteers.  Please contact Sherri Lewis if you can help.
