Our celebration began at 11am with chair, Robert Gill giving us direction.  We set the food up on an assembly line, and a few members made additional boxes.  The help arrived at 12pm and we got to work  packing about 150 boxes of miscellaneous food items.  It's amazing to see this in action and because everyone knows what we are doing and what's expected.  Before you know it you have a full truck of boxes that were dropped off at Heart of The Hamptons immediately following the meeting.  After a boxed lunch from Golden Pear, we proceeded with the pledge and the prayer.   Holiday party and Peace Pole announcements were made next week.  Holiday Party at Main Prospect in place of next weeks meeting 6pm .  Peace Pole Ceremony next Saturday at 11am.  Nick Dyno took over the reigns as we saluted our Students of the Month for October, November and December.  Thank you everyone for your help today.  Looking sharp.
