This club runs like a well-oiled machine. They are in the "acquisitive phase" of attracting new members. The membership is city oriented (3 councilmembers, 3 retired coucilmembers, 1 planning commissioner, 4 staff.) I sponsored Mark Stuart, LWSD Director. To become a member, it's best to stop in at the Redmond Pankake House as a guest.

Present members are "cream of the crop" within the community. (I'm not sure where or if I fit in.)

"Beat the Bunny" 5K, Derby Days, and "Summer Series" at the Senior Center are key fundraisers.

Support for children is mostly through 1) providing meals at three locations for the underprivileged, 2) support of two high school "Key Clubs."
