Tonight at Trinity's President Shane Parouse announced Treasurer, Mark Reisig had his 6 year old daughter pull the winning tickets for our Thanksgiving Raffle.  We have three winners and Shane will be contacting them to arrange providing the: IPad (donated by John Beyer; Men On The Move); Child's Bike (donated by Ron Keats; and the acoustic guitar (donated by Tom Attivissimo, Greiner Maltz Commercial R/E Brokerage).  Our condolences to those who did not win.  There is always Power Ball.

Shane also announced we will be once again be having a Rotary Blood Drive two days after Christmas, Thursday 12/27/12, 2:30 to 8:30 at the United Methodist Church on Verbena Ave., Floral Park, NY.  Michele McCaffrey from the LI Blood Services was on hand providing flyers, scripts, often asked questions/answers, and team sign up forms for our use in encouraging past and new donors to come and give blood.  Shane asks all members to bring five people to the event as we would like to exceed last years numbers:  Last year 79 people came and 68 pints were donated. 

Our program chairman, Michael Breitman, introduced tonight's speaker, Chris Soto, Sales Manager, Benjamin Motors, Albertson, NY.  Benjamin Motors is a licensed new car dealership for ALL TYPES & MODELS OF CARS.  Chris gave us great advice for our future car shopping.  He can save people/companies a heck of lot of time and a heck of a lot of money.  He is particularly good with firms who have fleets of auto's/trucks.  Chris will be putting out the word regarding our blood drive and we should do the same regarding his services.*  

Frank Scaturo also stopped by this evening giving us a run down of the local political results, including his run.  John Day was also with us as was this writer.  Hope to see all at our next meeting Dec. 11th when we will have an awesome criminal attorney, Alan Schwartz speaking about what he does and how he can help people.  Worth a listen!  The best to all...Rich Burgess
