Our December meeting began with the pledge and a moment of silence. Thank you to Steph and Bill at The Other Place in Orangeville for hosting our meeting this month. We appreciate your hospitality and support!

Steve gave us an update on the success and progress we accomplished at our Storm the Capitol event on October 12. Once again, thank you to everyone who helped out with this event! It seems as though we may finally have the attention of our legislators.

Our chili cook off was a great success again this year. Thank you to everyone who helped with collecting door prizes, set up, working at the event, and clean up. Our Fall to Fall chili run book party and chili cook off could not be as successful as it is without everyone's help! We sold a record amount of products this year, which is great!

Gifts That Foster Hope also was a huge success this year. Our final numbers are in and we beat last year by an amazing amount of money! This is another event that would not be a beautiful success story without the hard work of many, many people. The foster children in Green County will be able to have a much brighter Christmas as well as a brighter new year.

Biker Day at the Capitol, formerly known as Lobby Day, is January 23. Please try to attend, we need to keep up our fight as our work is not done! Appointments will be made and you don't have to talk to anyone if you don't want to. It's a fun day with a lot of great friends old and new! I hope to see all of you there!

Our next meetings will be January 7, February 4 and March 4. All meetings at 11AM at the Junction House Tavern outside of Monroe. Until next time ... stay safe my friends!
