Club News 


May 15 - Don Daseke - Don talked about starting the Daseke family of companies and how they have rapidly expanded into a nationwide network.  His aim is to take small, usually family-owned, stable and sucessful companies and combine them to take advantage of being part of a large corporation without messing with their management, employees, customers or day to day operations.  














We are still collecting prescription bottles.  Be sure to remove the labels and rinse.  Bring to each meeting.  Stan is collecting for use in Malawi, a small landlocked country in southern Africa.  Don't forget, your animals may have prescriptions too!


This photo shows our third batch being delivered by Stan.
