Happy Dollars:

$1 from Brian Winslow in honor of Michelle Cardinal, who represents our newest corporate member, the Laconia Police Department.
$2 from Joe Adrignola one in honor of our newest member and one for NOT winning the "cheesy" 50/50.
$1 from Key Clubber Hannah Weller (in honor of the Laconia Kiwanis Club) "for having such a great sponsoring body."
$1 from Jim Fortier because he had his last CAT scan and "things are looking good."
$2 from Roger Landry: $1 for winning and $1 because Jim Fortier now has more hair than he does. He then noted that Phil Bonafide shamed him to give the other 11 dollars from his 50 50 winnings to the Key Club.

Kathy Calvin gave 25 cents for being pinless.
