One of our contests that is going well and we have started repeating, it has been written into our bylaws is we got a coffee container that was empty and a roll of tickets, some purple marbles and 1 white marble. Every week people spend $1 to buy three tickets. Then they pick someone to draw the ticket to see who gets to try to draw the name of the person who will get to try to draw the white marble out of the coffee container. Every week when the marble has been drawn out, the marble is kept out. When the white marble is finally drawn out the money that has been collected is divided between the person who drew the white ticket out, the IRD and SRD. (EACH ONE GETS 1/3 OF THE MONEY). The one time the contest finished was 3 weeks ago. $327 dollars were given to each. If the white marble is not drawn out all the purple marbles are added again to the coffee container and the contest continues until the white marble is drawn. Week before last we voted and the contest was restarted. Whether you lose or not does not effect whether or not you can play or draw. You aren't allowed to buy more than 1 ticket any week though. They have allowed people to buy tickets for friends that couldn't stay for the meeting. If you have any questions, let me know, if I don't know I will ask the treasurer.

Something else I have started doing more is genealogy. I have things from both sides of the family. I wish I had asked even more questions, but I have been reading more about how to do it. I still have my Mother to ask questions on her side of the family, and 2 Aunts that might be able to help on the other side. My father lives in Australia so he is hard
