This year, the club was able to provide 26 full meals of turkey or ham to 25 families in the greater Austin Metropolitan area. Meals were purchased from funds raised by activities associated with the club's annual open tournament.
Additional money came from friends of the club that contributed independently and from club members own pockets to add more food and small gifts for the families.
This year, members helping with the meal distribution are: Robert Johnson, Tim Champlin and his son, Don Blumrich, Dennis Creech, Dan and Joan (?) Clawson, Roy Aleman and CA Aleman.
