 2011 club President, Lee Smith kicked off the business part of the meeting.  Lee announced two new members, Dave Zajac and Dianne Thayer. Two visitors Richard and Nikki were introduced. All four from Waukesha Wisconsin.

The club Board of Directors voted that the Christmas toys not sold, be put in the hands of under privileged kids. So, all the toys that were not sold, went to the Christian Outreach and Masonic Temple for distribution. We start over in 2012 with the making of new toys.
