Club Happenings & News

Charles E. Kline, Jr., Age 84, of Chambersburg, PA, passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 11, 2017, at the Village of Laurel Run.
LISTEN TO YOUR FRIENDS -  There were only four cards on the Big Board.  Pete Lagiovane was ready to choose.  He asked the crowd for advice, and then promptly ignored it and selected a different card.  He got a loser.  The card suggested by the crowd?  JACKPOT!!!
 
This week there will be only three cards, the Jackpot card, a $5 winner, and a You Lose card.  We expect ticket sales to be brisk, and that the jackpot will be about $750!  Be sure to attend the meeting and to get your jackpot tickets.
Benjamin Champion and Maggie Myers were recognized as “Students of the Month” for March 2017.
