Lion Al discussed the idea of club members building playhouses, ice houses and picnic tables. Al volunteered to look into the cost of construction of these items and will get back to the club with cost estimates at the next meeting. This is a project that could be a money maker and an opportunity for members to work together on something other than just fundraising.
