3 C's Monthly Minutes

March 14, 2020

The March meeting of the 3C’s Ohio Club was held at the Paradise Recreation Center with 38 members present.  Perk and Nancy Perkins were this month’s greeters.  Members on arrival were asked to put a star on one of the Villages maps to show the location of their house. We did not have coffee or donuts this month as the coffee crew did not attend this meeting for health concerns.

President Judi Andrews opened the meeting at 9:05. Judi told the members she had personally sanitized the room and was pleased to see that members were spread out around the room. Dan Lyle read a clever poem he wrote as well as a prayer. Steve St. Clair reported that our treasury currently has a balance of $3,209.32. The posted minutes had no additions or corrections and will stand as posted.

February was a busy month for club activities and included a lady’s lunch at the Rose Plantation, a dinner out at Little Joey’s and a Leap Year Poker Run hosted by Kathy and Bud Klein that was lots of fun with many winners.

Upcoming events for March include a dinner out at the Olive Garden on Monday, March 16th at 4:30 pm, a lady’s lunch on Wednesday, March 25th at Demshar’s Spanish Springs at 11:30 am, and a lady’s 9-hole golf and lunch on Monday, March 30th.

There are separate sign up sheets for these activities.

Max Pierre gave us some Ohio Fun Facts. Ohio is an Iroquois word meaning “great river.” The world’s largest cuckoo clock is in Sugar Creek, Ohio and the cash register was invented by Ohioan, James Ritty.

Jan and Jack Petro’s daughter Audrey from Mentor was our only guest. Remember to invite fellow Ohioans to our club by giving them our club cards located on the back table.

Tab tops and box tops for Ronald McDonald House through the Villages Elementary in Lady Lake are still being collected. The Box Top For Education App can be downloaded and Dennis Benson will help anyone who needs assistance after the meeting. This is the last month for this year’s collection of tab tops and we are aiming for 80 pounds. Food and monetary donations for the Lady Lake Food Pantry also continues.

Nancy Perkins, our sunshine volunteer, will be glad to check on a member, send a card or make a phone call if you let her know. Lew Olson was our only March birthday this month and he earned the $5.00 prize for this month.

Our entertainment this month was a trivia game hosted by Carol Helfer. Before members played the game, we watched a video entitled “Pray your Babies Grow Up to be Buckeyes.” We also had a warm up activity of finishing the common proverb sentences. Our top prize winner in the trivia game was Denny Stafford with 35 correct answers out of 40. Denny and nine other top winners received a scratch offlottery ticket for their prize.

Mike and Kathy Demma did the 50/50 which had four winners. Our meeting adjourned at 10:18 am.

Judi invited members who wished to stay to discuss the future decisions about the club. The survey taken previously was discussed as well as expenditures of the club for entertainment and the possibility of raising the dues next year to $10 per year. No decisions were made as more members need to be present to vote. Debbie Tittl moved that we table the dues increase to another meeting and Nof Monago seconded the motion. This optional meeting adjourned at 10:50 am.

Judi announced there is a plan for Paradise Recreation Center to be torn down and rebuilt sometime in 2021.  Our Club will be assigned a new location for the duration giving us a few choices. We can get a head start looking for a location that might be available for a permanent move ideally closer to the middle of The Villages.

There has been some discussion in the last few years that our Club name suggests exclusivity causing former Ohio residents to avoid joining. It has been suggested we change the name of our club. Think of some ideas. 

Several members have requested more entertainment at our meetings and with our $5 dues, we are limited. So it has been suggested that we increase our dues to $10 per person for the year. We will put a “donation” basket on the refreshment table at meetings to see if it is a good source of additional income.

Before any changes are made, there will be an informal meeting for those interested in making suggestions to the entire membership. This meeting will be in held in March after our planned Majority Rules activity.

When purchasing 50/50 tickets in 2020, buyers will receive more tickets for the same amount of money. The winners split $132.

Lee and Carol Helfer led the annual “White Elephant” gift exchange which was enjoyed by all.

The meeting was adjourned at 10:45.

All members present voted a unanimous yes.

Monthly meeting reminder callers are:

Mary Shreves, Committee Chair and Committee Members:  Donna Simson, Barb Davis, Sally Crawford, Kathy Demma, and Marge Grguric. 

If you do not need a phone reminder, please let your caller know that you do not need to be called.  

Guest speakers were Lake County Fire Department Lt. Robert Ford and Firefighter Einhorn; both part of the Venom 2 team.  About two years ago Lake County Fire Rescue Venom 2 unit was launched and the snakebite response team is going strong.  The team’s debut year, in which it grew from three to nine officers, delivered 75 vials of antivenom to hospitals around Florida.

While the team maintains the second largest antivenom bank in the nation, the team was designed for education. The team takes calls to identify snakes and give group talks to those who request them.   They usually get two to three calls every day from people who want advice on how to handle a snake or who need help identifying one.  Venom officers are usually able to identify a snake from a single cell phone picture, and if they can’t, they’ll go out to meet it.

People should call anyway if they see an unfamiliar snake — primarily because of how often someone will think they’ve identified a snake on their own and then go to pick it up.  Ninety percent of anti-venom calls they’ve responded to were from someone picking up a snake they shouldn’t have touched, and none of those calls came from Lake County.

Remember…”Red on yellow – kill a fellow.  Red on black, friend of Jack.

Anyone who wants to purchase a club shirt can have it done at Custom Apparel. You can either take your own shirt there to have the logo added or purchase a shirt at the store. The store is on highway 466 in the Southern Trace Plaza.  Don and Donna Simson can provide additional information.

30 members enjoyed the October 26th Scavenger hunt organized by Bud and Kathy Klein.  Many thanks to Bud and Kathy.  Susan B and Dave Hamilton and Barry and Helen Beck were winners.

Several ladies enjoyed lunch October 28th at Miz Kathi's Cotillion Southern Cafè in Wildwood.

President Judi had colorful signup sheets on each table listing the upcoming events the club will be sponsoring. Members were encouraged to sign up for the ones that interest them. The activities are listed on the club’s website.

It is time to renew membership.  Pack N Ship has offered a 10% discount to Ohio 3 C’s members.

In honor of Veterans Day, 20 Veterans introduced themselves and stated their branch of service.  Thanks to all who served our country.

Max gave a brief history of Thanksgiving.  Thanksgiving is a Federal Holiday in the United States, beginning in 1789, with a proclamation by George Washington after a request by Congress.   Thomas Jefferson chose not to observe the holiday, and its celebration was intermittent until the presidency of Abraham Lincoln when Thanksgiving became a Federal Holiday in 1863. During the American Civil War Lincoln proclaimed a national day of Thanksgiving.   From 1942 onwards, Thanksgiving has been proclaimed by Congress as being on the fourth Thursday in November.

There are many Holiday Concerts in and near The Villages.  Dates and locations can be found in The Daily Sun.  Jan Petro is performing “Grandma who runs over a reindeer” in the Rotary December 13 and 14 program.

Members received a paper describing the Holiday Scavenger Hunt for 3 C’s Ohio Club.  The purpose is to have fun celebrating the holidays!   The activities can be completed between November 9, 2019 and January 10, 2020, and can be done wherever we are…Ohio, Florida, or other locations.  There are 25 tasks and a photo must be taken when the task is completed.  Bring form to the January meeting.

Jan and Hal Swope are moving to Tennessee.  We wish them well.

The January 11th meeting will be our Annual “White Elephant” gift exchange.  Loads of fun.  Bring one or two usable items for trade, wrapped in newspaper. 

Mike and Kathy Demma did the 50/50 and eight winners split $106.

Meeting was adjourned at 10:45 am. 

Members and guests were invited to play bocce ball after the meeting.
