What's New at IUEC 10
Wet, but still a great time
October 1st we had our Annual Toy Show.  Mother Nature did not want to stop the rain, so the party went on with the rain as a  back drop.  The wet weather did not seem to bother anybody at all.  The only thing about rain is that people don't want to bring their TOYS out in it.  We did have a few who brought their toys for all to see.  Gene Dickinson brought his beautiful red car, Chip Carr brought his amazing green truck, and Reggie even brought his motorcycle out (he had to ride to and from home on the motorcycle!!). Oh yea, I also saw a picture of that orange and white beauty that belongs to Mr. Friedman.  Glen Brown Sr. did up some great crabs, Mike and Dorothy Watson smoked a pig this year with sausages, and Mike DiGuieppe and Harley Bowman (it was good to see Harley up and around) did dogs on the grill.  The one thing about these get togethers is that everyone lends a hand in preparing the meal and then everyone sits down together and enjoys the meal.  I am told that we had right around 100 people here having lunch in the Hall.  There was some corn hole going on, some rides in the back of Chips truck around the block, and the guests of honor Lynard and Skynyrd.  The kids love to feed and play with the goats.  A BIG THANK YOU to all that pitched in and helped make the day a big success.  Hope to see more of you, as well as more sun, next year.  I have put a photo album in the Photo Gallery for all to see.
Update: Blood Drive

I just wanted to take a moment and thank the IUEC members, and the community members, who came out yesterday and donated blood.  I had 34 people sign up to donate.  We had 22 who actually showed up to donate.  5 of those were unable to, but I want them to know that I am very thankful that they at least tried.  We donated to the Red Cross, 17 bags of blood.  17 out of 1162 members.  WOW!  That is all I am going to say.  Oh, really it was 14 from the members, because I had 3 lovely people from the Lanham community come over and donate because we were close to home for them.  I really hope that next year more of you will consider coming out.  I know that a lot of people don't think about donating until it really hits home.  I have donated twice a year since I was a junior in high school.  This last year, my father was given a diagnosis of cancer.  I feel helpless that I cannot do anything to help make his journey a little easier. He is my dad and I love him more than life itself, but I know that by donating, should he need blood during his treatment, I have done my part to help.  Blood is the fluid of life.  Without it, sick or healthy, you can not live.

Please consider donating any time you can.  You just might save the life of someone close to you.

Just a reminder

Just a reminder to the membership and their families.  Saturday, October 1, 2016  will be the day for the Annual Big Toy Show.  The show will start at 11:00 am at the Union Hall, 9600 Martin Luther King Jr. Hwy., Lanham, MD.  Please bring your "Big Boy Toys" and share with your brothers and sisters.  If you have a car, truck, motorcycle, camper, or maybe even a boat.  Bring it with you and show it off.  The kids love to see "The Toys."  Each family is asked to bring a side dish to share and the Local will be providing pork, hamburgers, hot dogs, popcorn, soda, water, and crabs.  We are looking for the sun to be bright and the weather to be a little cooler.

Hope to see you all there for a day with your brothers and sisters.

1st place for Local #10 top shooters

Saturday, August 20, 2016 was the date for the USA 2016 Baltimore Trap Shoot and Local #10 had a highly skilled team to represent us.  In the picture, to the left of this article, you can see (L-R) Cale Fuller, Reggie Garner, Austin Peed, and Retired Brother, Jim Price.  Mr. Ralph C Wellens was also part of the team but had to leave before the picture was taken.  These five gentleman had high score for the day and brought home the First Place Belt Buckle.  There is one in the front display case, here at the Hall, if you would like to see it.  Congratulations to all of these gentleman and thank you for giving Local #10 bragging rights for the next year.  Hopefully you can repeat next year.

If you would like to get involved with the Sportsman Allicance events, you can contact Cale Fuller for more information.

Hold this date in December

I can not believe I am going to say this, but it is that time of year again.  Please mark your calendars for the annual Family/Kids Christmas Party.  As we always do, we are having the party the first Saturday in December, December 3, 2016, from 1 - 4 pm.  We will provide Lasagna, tossed salad, hot dogs, popcorn and drinks.  We ask that each family bring a dish to share with others.  We will have all the crafts that the kids love to make, Christmas movies, and the Big Guy himself, SANTA.  Parents should bring one (1) gift per child, value not to exceed $25.00.  The gift should be wrapped and marked with your childs name, from SANTA.  Santa will give out the gifts, to your child, that you bring.  Please PRINT your childs name on the gift so that Santa and the Elves can read it.

If you are laid off and cannot afford to bring a gift for your child, please call the Business Office, in advanced, and we will try to provide a gift for your child.

Please fill out the RSVP form (print form below) and mail in by November 28, 2016 to Local #10 Christmas Party, 9600 Martin Luther King Jr. Hwy, Lanham, MD 20706.

Words of Wisdom

 When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.
