Thanks to the Club’s Halloween Committee for their hard work and dedication to the Safe Trick or Treat Night event held last Thursday.  The Club’s booth theme this year was “Minecraft” which is a game that allows players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Special thanks to Tiff Reed, Trista Welch, Terry Bradley, Beth Bradley, Sherry Toineeta, Paige Crowe, Nikki Crowe, Gina Crowe, Jody Saunooke, Michael Bradley, Leslie Lossiah, Ietan Reed-Littlejohn, Hayes Reed, Herbie Lossiah, Chad Carver, Travis Smith and Missy Ledford for their assistance in this project.


Thanks to everyone who coordinated the benefit for Jerry Sherrill last Friday.  Thanks also to those who came out to support the sale of the Indian Dinners at this benefit    held at the Acquoni Baptist Church Fellowship Hall. Jerry, a Boys Club Bus Driver and C&F employee is currently undergoing treatment for leukemia.


Please keep the friends and families of Bill Ledford, Frances Littlejohn Smith, Betty Lossiah, Charles Lambert, Mary Murphy and Mildred Catolster in your thoughts and prayers as they go through this difficult time in their lives. The Boys Club extends their sincere sympathy to all of these families.


The Family Support Services’ office will not be taking applications for heating or emergency assistance during the months of November, December and January.  Their policy does not provide this assistance the month before, the month of, and the month after Per Capita distributions.  They will begin taking applications again Feb. 1, 2014.


Applications for the Christmas Store sponsored by Family Support Services begins today – Monday, Nov. 4.  For more information, please contact Leslie Lossiah at 497-6092.
