Mike Rockwood won the raffle. 

New Business
Some sad news. Rich and Marianne Mustachio’s son passed away. Marianne lost Rich not a long time ago. She needs our thoughts and prayers. Rest in peace Rich. We are sorry for your loss Marianne and you’re in our prayers. 

Old Business
Polly May is now in hospice. She is at home and I’m sure she would like to receive any calls or cards. 
Dennis Avery has club gear for sale. 

The Paddle 
David Lockwood had his car breakdown in the Laguna Niguel Christmas parade so now it’s his turn for the Paddle.

We did not have a Christmas party last year as there was not enough interest from the members. 
The Christmas parade was a lot of fun. 10 cars and then we all went to the IHOP for lunch a good day. The lights during the Christmas lights cruise were great, so were the donuts and fellowship afterwards. 
Dennis Katovsich is working on the Steve McQueen show to be held on June 1. This is a great show and a lot of fun for all.
