At the last general meeting we voted to

donate $1000 to the Marjaree Mason

Center. The Center was founded in

1979 by the YMCA-Fresno after the

kidnapping, rape and murder of

Marjaree Mason. Mason, a victim of

domestic violence, was killed by her exboyfriend,

a Fresno County Sheriff’s

Deputy. In 1998 the Marjaree Mason

Center became a stand-alone domestic

violence agency. The Center operates

three confidentially located safe

houses, with more than 200 beds, in

Fresno County. These Safe Houses

shelter women and children victims of

domestic violence. The Center also

provides legal assistance, counseling

and education for victims as well as

training necessary for those who want

to volunteer or work with victims.

This is a terrific local charity and I think

we did well in selecting them for our

donation. Thanks to Skip Severance for

proposing we do this. Skip along with

Charlotte Renna will be delivering our

check to the Center on October 1 st .

My wife, Jan, mentioned to me on the

last run we were on that there were a

lot of newer members on the run. I

hadn’t noticed it, but she was right.

It’s great to see so many members,

new and old enjoying the friendship

and exploring new places on our runs.

Keep up the good work.

All is ready for the Mystery Run. The

Sons have signed up so we now have

23 cars and 46 people. Frieda Null has

volunteered to once again be the

Margarita Honcho so plan on a couple

of Happy Hour get-togethers.

See you all at the next meeting.


Sgt. at Arms Chuck Laningham didn’t collect

any fines, everyone wore their badges

tonight!

Jan Pflepsen gave her Sunshine and Clouds

report.

The General Meeting was called to order

at 6:30 by President, Gary Pflepsen.

The minutes from the August general

meeting were rea by Debby Anderson,

Secretary. Leigh Ann Severance made a

motion to accept the minutes as read and

it was seconded by Don Condley. Motion

carried.

Craig Hansen, Parliamentarian handed out

ballots and we voted for charitable

donation and new board.

Mike Lebda, Treasurer gave his report.

Skip Severance VP of Activities had the run

leaders report on the previous runs.

Future runs will be Domino’s, Sugar Pine

Rail Road, Queen Halls, Murphy Park & the

Halloween party at Andy & Connie

Anderson’s house.

Dick Danielsen, VP of PR/Membership was

absent so Skip read the birthday and

anniversary report. He also said that there

are 23 cars and 26 members signed up for

the Presidents Mystery Run.

Club shirts were distributed. A few were

missing Fresno from the bottom of the patch

so Mike told everyone they could give the

shirt back and it would be fixed if they

wanted.

Results of the Charitable Donation: Marjorie

Mason Center for women got the most

votes. Skip is going to plan a time when

whoever wants to will get together to

present the check and they will make a mini

run out of it and go to eat after.

There was no new business at tonight’s

meeting.

The next General Meeting will be October

20, 2015 at 6:30.

The next Board Meeting will be September

22, 2015 at 7:00 pm at Debby Anderson’s

house.

Motion to adjourn the meeting was made by

Scott Parkin, Lupe Dawson seconded.

Meeting Adjourned at 7:15 pm.

Respectfully submitted by,

Secretary

Recipe for Sue’s Great Dessert

Milkmaid Pie

24 ice cream sandwiches, unwrapped

1 pint heavy whipping cream

½ cup sugar

6 heath bars crushed.

(I used 4 bars and added ½ cup chopped nuts.)

1 jar hot fudge topping (the kind for ice cream)

¼ cup strong coffee (left over coffee) or espresso

Beat heavy whipping cream with mixer.

When it forms soft peaks, stop mixing and

add sugar.

Then mix on high speed until stiff peaks form;

store in refrigerator when finished, and take out when ready to

assemble dessert.

Pour the hot fudge topping into a bowl and add the coffee or

espresso. Stir until smooth and combine. In 9x13 dish …

First layer: 12 ice cream sandwiches on the bottom. (Cut them to fit

dish); Second layer: spread ½ of the whipping cream; Third layer:

drizzle ½ of the fudge topping and Fourth layer: sprinkle with ½ of

the candy and nuts. Repeat layers.

Place the dessert in the freezer for an hour or more before

serving. Take it out of the freezer 10-15 minutes

before serving depending on the weather.
