Toys for Tots toy drive. Breakfast & Lunch served by the LBC members.

The annual Toys for Tots toy drive will conclude at the Leesburg Boating Club on Sunday, December 7th.  Where there will be a weigh in with prizes for the organization with the most weight of toys donated. See attached flyer for more details.

There will be a parade of boats departing Hurricane Dockside Grill at 11:30am on December 7th bringing toys to the boat club. We will get an extra 50 pounds of credit towards our weight for each LBC boat in the parade.

Also volunteers from the club will be running a concession stand in the Tiki for workers and attendees. Come on down and watch the weigh in and have a sandwich for lunch. All profits from food sales will be donated to Toys for Tots.

We now have collection boxes (5) in the Tiki for you to pick up for your business. There are also boxes available at Holiday Marine.

The LBC members can bring their new unwrapped toys to the Tiki to drop in the box. Let’s fill them up this year!

Dear LBC members,

Welcome to fall, at least for a few days.

It’s time to make final plans for the Chili & Cornbread Pot Luck on Sunday, December 7, 2014.

Dinner will be served at 5:30 with the parade starting at 6:30. If you are donating food please have it there by 4:30.

 

We have two Co-leaders that are heading up the event, Bonnie Binneveld and Linda Weekley. They did this job last year, so are well trained. Thank you Bonnie & Linda.

 

We have volunteers for the following:

Chili:

Marilyn Mayfield
Jeanne Thrope
Joanne Welsh-Marcella
Carol Scarbourgh
Jackie Talley

 

Cornbread:

Joanne Welsh-Marcella
Jackie Talley

 

Setup:

Jackie Talley
Marilyn Mayfield

 

As you can see we need a lot more food and help with the setup & cleanup. Last year we had 22 crockpots of chili and 15 pans of cornbread. We can use at least 6-10 more members to help with setup & cleanup.

 

The club will provide shredded cheese, crackers, sour cream, hot sauce, Fritos and chopped onions to top the chili.

Please note if you are going to bring your special recipe for chili and if it is spicy please mark the crock pot accordingly. Thanks.

Please reply to this email if you can bring food and I will keep Bonnie & Linda up to date.
