TCMG Donates Big To Foster Children’s Resource Center

In lieu of our usual holiday toy drive, TCMG gathered monetary donations for the Foster Children’s Resource Center this season.  Our members were very generous, raising $2,454.00 for this worthy cause. Well done!



Our first meeting of the new year will take place on January 26.  Due to Covid-19 concerns, this meeting will be held online using the Zoom application.  The meeting will begin at 6:00 PM PDT.  You can participate using any computer or device with the free Zoom software installed.  If you require assistance installing Zoom, contact Steve Simmons or David Edgar.

The evening’s program will be announced shortly.

Note that anyone making a simulated journey to the meeting in their TC by driving a minimum of 10 miles on the day of the meeting will receive a point toward the Sargent Award.

December recap: Our annual Meeting and Holiday Party was held online via Zoom.  27 Members and guests attended and five drove a simulated trip of 10 miles or more.  Those who drove were Edgar, Hunsberger, Lemieux, Loe and Simmons.

Our next event will be the Lame Duk Kup in late January / early February.  Details will be announced soon.
