Check with Joe for details at jsdyke@up.net or 353-8505 or just bring tools you have available like rakes, shovels, wheelbarrow or cart, pruning tools, small hand tools, etc..... Ladies, if it is nice enough we need to clean up the inside of the clubhouse so we will need household ladders, rags, newspaper and vinegar to clean the windows (weather permitting). Thereís a Shop Vac available there to get the flies!! See you there .. remember, many hands make light work.

Russ received a message from MUCC that the resolutions submitted by clubs for consideration at the 2011 convention have been posted on the MUCC website. Would you please go to the website and checkout the resolutions and we will be reviewing them as a group at the June membership meeting so Jack Lehto will know the sentiments of OSC members when he goes to the annual meeting.

Iím still taking dues for those who havenít paid their $25. Send them as soon as possible to be included on the MUCC roster which is being updated as I write this.

Ladies:: Some board are inquiring if there is any interest in a low impact exercise group to be held at the club. This would be Qigone (pronounced ĎChi-kungí) and is extremely low impact for those bad knees and other weakened body parts. This can be done sitting in a chair, if necessary, for your condition. Men can participate in this program. What we hear from you will make the decision. Any questions or comments to Ken Snyder 338-2580 or snyder_kg@yahoo.com or me, Judy jglandon@alphacomm.net or 906-370-3228.

This is a lot of information. Iím so hoping you will keep it handy and support your club as often as possible.

Club contact is President Russ Weisinger 353-6859 or russweis@up.net
