2015-2016 Michigan Club

Door prizes are one of the important activities of the Michigan Club. Not only does it create a lot of interest at our meetings, with over 80 prizes given at each meeting, it also is a revenue source for the Club from the sale of door prize tickets. The entire process gives the Club visibility in the community through the collection of the prizes and through Club members redeeming the prizes at the local businesses.

Ken and Mary Richardson have done a wonderful job as the coordinators of this activity for the past four years but they are now ready to move on to other things. They will not be Door Prize coordinators in 2016. We want to thank them for their faithful 4 years of service.

That means that we are now in need of someone stepping up and taking the leadership for this activity. This would be an ideal job for two couples to lead but it could be one couple or 2 or 3 friends working together.

In simple terms the job entails receiving the door prizes from the committee of collectors, keeping records of prizes, organizing the prizes for the meetings and then presenting the prizes at the meetings. The person in this job does not have to be acollector but they could, if the wanted to. The job would also include communicating with the collection committee members prior to the start of the Club “season” in November & December. But you do not have to be in south Alabama before January 1 of each year to do this job.  

As you all know this is a major function of the Club and we know there are many members that could do a great job handling this activity. Please give this careful consideration, talk to your friends, volunteer or recommend other people to volunteer.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact me at 517-980-6196
