Building Association News

We had great success with our Lenten Fish Dinners.  We would like to thank all the volunteers that help with the dinners. The fish and onion breading, general prep work, drive-thru order takers, runners to the take-outs, friers and servers, money person inside, clean up to name a few.  These are some very dedicated folks and thankful for all the volunteers.

Recently we had a couple of other events, that helped raise some money for our new charity for an Ultra Sound for the Muskegon Pregnancy Center.  We will continue to do events like this that will help raise funds for this initiative.

The Cinco de Mayo party was held on May 5th (Duh!),  We had Burritos and all the fixings.  The turnout was very good and well-received.  We would like to thank the volunteers for this party and thank them for all the work they did.  Barb Langlois, Beth Chandonnet, Elaine Phee, Ellen Jackson, Pam DeWall, Kathy Dorato, Deb Meehan, and The Homestead Tavern (Theresa Dove).

The next event was the Kentucky Derby party held on May 7th. The Committee of Deb Sechen, Barb Langlois, and Pam DeWall put on a wonderful party.  There were two raffles:  a Bourbon Basket – sponsored by Deb Sechen and Pat Goresch, also a Margarita Basket – sponsored by Seconda Addicott.  Additional volunteers for this event: Joe and Cindy Wolf, Kathy Dorato, Seconda Addicott, Stacia and Jim Starr, Richard Langlois, Grant Sechen, and Scott Shlaffer.  A great time was had by all thanks to these volunteers.

We are doing great things for our community and all the volunteers are making these things happen.  If I missed anyone from the lists above, I’m sorry. Our summer Wednesday evening dinners are in full swing.  If you are willing and able to help with these dinners, contact Steve Tejchma at 855-2796.  Our volunteers make these dinners possible; we would like to thank all the volunteers that help out.

Joke(s) of the Month

Baby Sitting

A young man agreed to baby-sit one night so a single mother could have an evening out. At bedtime he sent the youngsters upstairs to bed and settled down to watch football.

One child kept creeping down the stairs, but the young man kept sending him back to bed.

At 9:00 pm the doorbell rang, it was the next-door neighbor, Mrs. Brown, asking whether her son was there.

The young man brusquely replied, “No.”

Just then a little head appeared over the banister and shouted, “I’m here, Mom, but he won’t let me go home!”

Indian Scout

An old wild west fort was about to be attacked. The wily old general sent for his trusty Sioux scout.

“You must use all your thirty years of skill in trying to estimate the sort of army we are up against here.”

The trusty scout laid down and put his ear to the ground.

“Large war party,” he said, “maybe three hundred braves, four chiefs, two on black stallions, two on white stallions. All have war paint; Many, many guns. Medicine man also with them.”

“Good grief!” exclaimed the general, “you can tell all of that just by listening to the ground?”

“No,” replied the Indian, “I can see under the gate.”


Cop: You know how fast you were going?

Guy: Sorry officer, I was just trying to catch up with traffic.

Cop: What traffic? The road is empty.

Guy: Yeah, that’s how far behind I am.
