What were your fundraisers this year? • We had our 20th annual Tedford Golf Tournament – the proceeds from this fundraiser helps the club to fund other projects that we support. We give $4000 of scholarship money each year to 4 students graduating. • We give $1000 to Honor Flight to send 1 veteran to see the wall in Washington DC. • We give $1500 to our local boy scouts club. • We give quarterly to our Senior Citizens group, Polio fund, boy scouts, Community outreach – someone local in the community that needs help. How many social activities this year? We had two social activities this year with the entire club – Christmas party and spring fling. What district events did your club participated and how many attended each event? • Went to the grant program, the district meet earlier last year, the president induction at the beginning of the 2016‐2017 year. Sent 3 kids to RYLA. • We also started our flag program, this is the first year for that. It has been successful, we currently have 19 signed up. • We also feed the homeless two times this year at the Samaritan INN in McKinney, we installed a shade at our local water park here in town for parents to sit under, photo attached. • We had volunteers at our 1st annual car show, at our bike ride and scare around the square event in October last year. • We collected food for the local food pantry 2 times this year. I am sure there are more things we did but, this is all I can think of besides the items listed above.
