· Drag Queen Comedy Show. I am hosting as a way to raise money for Believe in Tomorrow. I am waiting on some pictures to create a flyer but the information is as follows: Saturday, January 13th from 7-11 at the Pit & Pub. Tickets will cost $25. The bar will be offering happy hour prices and a discounted menu, plus there will be some light hors d’oeuvres included in the ticket cost. I am limited to 100 people and I have an overwhelming response for people wanting tickets. I believe this will sell out fast, so I wanted to give you the information. Once I create the flyer I will forward it to you as well, but wanted you to know that I am beginning to sell the tickets now. Thank you, Maria.

o Where: Golf at 136th St. indoor venue with beer, wine and soda before and during play

o Format: same as last year: Foursomes of 2 mixed teams of 2 (male/female) - projected cost $25-30pp based on head count.
o Sign up: Please do this at the January Roost meeting - prefer earlier by calling Ron 302-436-4790 or email@example.com so proper planning can be done + a commitment to Old Pro Golf.

· Ninety-year-old Mr Tomkins went in for his annual checkup. When the doctor asked how he was feeling, he said, "Never been better! I've got an 18 year-old bride who's pregnant with my child! What do you think about that?"
The doctor considered this for a moment. "Let me tell you a story," he said. "I knew a guy who was an avid hunter. One day he went out in a hurry and accidentally grabbed his umbrella instead of his gun. He was in the woods and suddenly a grizzly bear appeared in front of him! He raised up his umbrella, pointed it at the bear, and squeezed the handle. And do you know what happened?"
"No," the old man said. "Tell me."
"The bear dropped dead in front of him!"
"That's impossible! Someone else must have shot that bear."
"That's kind of what I'm driving at," the doctor replied.
