    Thank you again, JM for opening up your home to the group. Had a great time. All the way home last night, Bill kept saying how much he loves everyone. I will get the minutes up hopefully today. HSF, those pics of your decorations are great. I did notice the APPLE CIDER bottle in the photos. Maybe I should go to you for ideas for decorations for the car for the Christmas parade. I need to put more decorations on her for this year, after looking at the pics of her at last years parade. I need to print or even post those pics.

    Here are the minutes of the meeting: Sept. 15, 2007

    Thank you to JM for the great hospitality, and great food and great friendship for all of us. You are such a blessing.

    CHOC WALK: Oct. 21, 2007. Refer to the thread for infomation. For those of us that are walking that day, HSF is making the reservations for the night before at a local hotel. He is going to need a head count soon, before making the reservations. Friday, October 19, is going to be the cut off date for HSF to gather all the monies for the walk. It costs $25 per walker, or you can sponser somebody. All the information is on the thread. There is an accounting form that needs to be printed out by all the walkers to put their donations on to be turned in with the monies. HSF will collect monies and forms at the next meeting.

    CAMPING TRIP: It was decided by all present to postpone the trip until next spring, because of all the the activities for the months of October and November, and December. It was thought by everyone that the spring would be a better time for everyone, with the weather and all. We can start making plans soon. Debbie had the prices for now, which are $15 a night w/o hookups, or,
    $18 a night with hookups. There is also a $5 fee for parking. The site is Mojave Narrows Park in Victorville.

    HSF brought up the "Nightmare Before Christmas in 3-D at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood as a trip for the group. The cost would be $11 each, or for a party of 20 or more, $9 each. It was decided to go on November 10, 2007. Mike will purchase the tickets but he needs a head count for this. He has put up a thread for this, so asked that if you are interested, that you go to that thread. If you do want tickets, you can pay later, but please if you do order tickets, make sure that you pay Mike for them. The dates for the movie to be at the El Capitan are October 19 - November 18, 2007. Everyone that went last year had a great time.

    Kari's, (Jedifan77) school is holding a fall Carnival/Car show on October 27, 2007. She has started a thread about this event with all the information. She would love us to come, costumes encouraged. It was a fun event last year.

    There was a discussion about doing a trip to Oak Glen for the apple picking. It was decided by everyone present to make the trip, but we will also have our October 13th meeting that same day in Oak Glen. It was decided to meet up around 10a.m. Debbie will post a thread with the directions, and carpooling information.
    We thought that 10a.m. would be a good time to meet up, with the meeting to follow the apple picking since the place closes somewhere around 5p.m.

    Event to think about: November 16, 2007: Star Wars themed Stargazing event at a Riverside elementary school. There is a thread about this event. They are asking for costumed people for the event. Rebel Legion and the 501st will be there. There is talk that NASA will be there, too. Kari said she will find out more information and post it on the thread. This event is on a Friday night.

    The special Star Wars Family Guy episode will be September 23,2007 at 9p.m. on channel 11, Fox network. The title is Blue Harvest.

    Remember the next meeting is on October 13, 2007 in Oak Glen. A thread will be up soon.

    Mike will collect the monies and forms for the CHOC Walk this day, too.

    Also, Mike is taking orders for T-shirts and hoodies. He is going to put a thread up for people to order. He needs at least 20 items to place the order. He will post the costs on the thread. Right now, the t-shirts are $9, not sure of the price of hoodies. He will let everyone know when he needs the money. Make sure when you order you put how many, size, and color, short sleeve or long sleeve.

    Respectfully submitted by HanChewie (Sandy) IEFF Secretary

    Thank you, everyone. I think I forgot to add that the December meeting will be at Debbie's home after the parade. Debbie is going to take care of the menu, but if you want to contribute that is great. A small donation would be a great help for Debbie. There will be a gift exchange with a $10 limit, if you want to participate. I hope I got everything right. Debbie will need some help to set up, too. It was a fun time last time.
