A request a few meetings ago by some members regarding club jackets.. Jim K. did some research on the topic and found that the Company that did our jackets some time ago, still has our club on file & the costs for both summer type and four season leather sleeved “melton” jackets are the cheapest than two other companies.. The Stormtech summer (lightweight) jacket is $137.00 w/embroidery work & for the Melton type is $152.00 w/embroidery work.. There is no minimum order currently.. Approx. 4 week turn around.. 3 current members have order jackets as of this print..
Our 1st attempt on hosting a Swap meet in the Edmonton Area was discussed & here is what is has been decided by all members.. (Please note as of this print 95% of the venue has been taken by vendors)
The tables will be provided by the good folks from Emmaus Lutheran Church & Armand L… in turn a donation from the club to the church for their tables will be given at the May meeting. This was decided by the club members rather than going with a “privateer company”..
We require members to help with set-up on Friday a.m.

A Silent Auction will also be added to this event, with the money raised going to the charity pot.
Numerous items have been donated & Thank-you to all our donators!!!
The monies raised from this swap meet (after all expenses are paid) will go into a pot & then added to the monies raised at our Annual Show n Shine in August, then the total amount in the pot will be dispersed to as many as 5 Kid’s charities in the Edmonton Area.
