The November meeting of the Hastings Melon Roasters was held on Tuesday, November 5th, at the First United Methodist Church in Hastings, with 12 members attending.

The club voted to go ahead and fund the installation of LED lights in the Pavilion at Brickyard Park with funds from the last Melon Roast Car Show. Mike will be working with the Parks Department to get the project done.

We started discussing next year’s charity for the Melon Roast. TeamMates, Habitat for Humanity, and Rite Care, were suggestions so far. If you have any other suggestions, we will be discussing, and voting, at the February meeting.

Mike will be contacting Pastime Lanes to schedule the annual Holiday Party. We are shooting for Sunday, January 19th. More details will follow as soon as everything is scheduled.

This coming Saturday (Nov. 16) the Hastings Melon Roasters will be volunteering at the United Harvest Program, held at the Peace Center, 622 North Lincoln Ave. in Hastings. Shifts are 9:30 and 11:30. There is also a 12:30 clean-up shift available. All volunteers please wear your Melon Roaster’s apparel.
