Dear Fellow Snowseekers,

I would like to open this month’s newsletter with great news!  There is snow in the area!!!! Even though the trail systems aren’t open until December 14th, any members with decent sized back yards may have already enjoyed their first ride of the season.

To continue with the upbeat news, the club held the Thanksgiving Neighborhood Dinner and work weekend on November 8th.  We had an exceptional turnout of members and non-members that pulled together and helped with the wood cutting, cooking, club house and garage maintenance.  We were able to cut and stack all the fire wood for the season, repair the roof of the social room, along with having the tile work in the men’s bathroom completed.  To add to the list of improvements, the garage had electrical updates and was cleaned, which allows room for four more sleds this season!  Also we no longer have problems with cell phone service inside our clubhouse thanks to the new equipment that was installed.   The highlight of the weekend was of course our Thanksgiving dinner which was exceptional.  Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time to make the dinner and work weekend a great success.

Our December 4 meeting, as always, will be our Christmas meeting. Please bring unwrapped gifts in the amount of $5.00 or more.  These gifts will then be raffled off throughout the meeting.  The money raised will go to the Salvation Army’s Needy Children.  Also since it’s the season of giving we would like members to donate can goods, baking supplies, cereal, hygiene products, disposal diapers, or cash donations in order to bring more merriment to those less fortunate.  Please be generous so we can help the families that find themselves in need with the upcoming holidays.

This year’s breakfast with Santa will be held Saturday, December 20th at 9:30 am until 11:30 am.  Location will be St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 215 North Main Street, Zelienople.  Please fill out the reservation flyer that was sent in October and return to Loretta Hayes or email as soon as possible.  The information that is needed is Number of Adults Attending____, Child’s or Children’s Name ________ with their ages, _____ and Gift suggestions_______.  This is free to Snowseekers’ children and grandchildren. The cost is $10.00 to any non-members to cover a gift.

Once again I would like to mention the PSSA Power Sports Show West.  This will be held in Monroeville at the Expose Center December 12th thru the 14th.  Please contact Scott Wilke if you can volunteer your time, or have any pics from the ANF, to make this event another Snowseeker achievement.  We are looking for items for donation to create a gift basket.  Joni will be working her magic with these items in order to create a one-of-a-kind basket to be raffled off at our booth the last day of the show.

Last but not least, everyone should have received their tickets for the Snowmobile/Quad Raffle and the Spring Bash.  Please make every effort to sell ALL the tickets that you have received, these two events have proven to benefit our club house immensely.

Judy and I would like to express our deepest Sympathy and Condolences to The Dave Ford Family and The Scott Thomas Family. Dave’s Mother passed away on November 16, 2014 and Scott Thomas’s Father passed away on November 23, 2014.  May your heart and soul find comfort and peace it needs during this time in your lives.

As Always Think Snow
