MESSAGE BOARD

Twenty eight members were in attendance for our September meeting.  We had some great finds of the months so check out who the winners were under the Finds of the Month tab.  This month we had an auction to raise money for our upcoming silver hunt in November.  Everyone loves to see a bidding war!  Everyone had a good time.  


Don't forget September 15th, Joann and Skipper Dunn are putting on a hunt for wounded warriors.  They are asking for help  with extra detectors to use with the wounded warriors.  Also it would be helpful to bring a covered dish.  This is for a great cause for our veterans that have given so much for their country and our freedom.  Please see or talk to                                                                      Joann about what you can do. 


We have a new item for sale under the Trading Post tab.  Please check it out!!



MONTHLY FUN FACT...

Butterflies taste with their feet.

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?...

CURFEW
The word "curfew" comes from the French phrase "couvre-feu", which means "cover the fire". It was used to describe the time of blowing out all lamps and candles. It was later adopted into Middle English as “curfeu" which later became the modern "curfew". In the early American colonies homes had no real fireplaces so a fire was built in the center of the room. In order to make sure a fire did not get out of control during the night it was required that, by an agreed upon time, all fires would be covered with a clay pot called-a “curfew".
