ROD AND GUN CLUB ANNUAL MEETING

 

A packed crowd of Rod and Gun Club members was in attendance at the annual meeting of the club, Monday night in the Bradford Room. Club president Bob Sutton outlined several ways to handle improvements to the club's lake. Two options were presented and discussed. Option one would have members of the club doing the work to clean out the current lake. Option two was a bid from Slatton Excavating for 202,000 dollars to do the work. It was the consensus of the members that hiring Slatton would be the best option. To pay for the improvements, all the members present voted to increase dues for next year and the foreseeable future, to 300 dollars a year.  The new dues should be enough to take care of annual expenses and retire a loan that the board of directors was encouraged to work out with the help of local banks.
