CAPTAIN YOGI'S USELESS
BUT IMPORTANT INFORMATION



Hello Everybody, from Belize!
Your Captain is on vacation this week so this will be a quick note!




In the tradition of the captains over the past couple of years, I’ve decided we’re pulling up our roots and moving to Belize! LOL

Unfortunately I won’t be at the meeting for obvious reasons this week but I wanted to remind everyone about the upcoming Christmas Social in December, and yes we are back on our Thursday schedule! And... there will be a gift exchange and plenty of good food and drink at the December Social! Lets have a great showing at the December formal, I'll be there to show off my Belize tan lines.

As you can see, I must get back to work now (my afternoon siesta) but I hope to see everyone in December!!

By the way, I heard some crazy reports that it snowed there? ICHH!

Your world traveling Captain,
Yogi

CRASHER'S MONTHLY CONCOCTION

"There's Booze in the Blender
& Soon it will Render,
That Frozen Concoction
that helps me hang on!"
Apple Pie Jello Shots

Makes 24 shots

Ingredients
1 1/4 cup apple juice or apple cider
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 envelopes Knox gelatin
3/4 cup whipped cream flavored vodka
6 Keebler mini graham-cracker pie crusts (they come in a package of 6 and are in most grocery stores in the baking aisle)
Whipped cream, for topping
Cinnamon, for topping

Instructions
1. Pour 1 cup apple juice or cider and 1/4 cup brown sugar into a medium-sized sauce pan. Sprinkle 2 envelopes Knox gelatin on top and let it sit for a minute to activate. Turn on medium heat and bring to a simmer (just enough to dissolve sugar and gelatin).

2. Add 3/4 cup flavored vodka and 1/4 remaining apple juice or cider. Pour the mixture into your pie crusts. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until completely set. Using a paring knife, cut your pies into quarter slices and lift them out carefully.

3. Top with whipped cream and cinnamon. Keep refrigerated until serving.

OK! I can't say that I have made these yet. BUT... I promise you all, I will make these very soon. Definitely for my family Thanksgiving party and possibly a few other parties I can think of... Invite me to your next party.

What can I say except,
"You're Welcome!"

DONATIONS DONATIONS


We are asking for you to bring donation items for a school for the deaf in Puerto Rico. The school is really struggling after the hurricanes. I know the women who runs the school and have been sending packages, the board has asked for your help. I will be shipping the items the following week. Here's what we need:
Proteins that do not need to be kept cold, (canned meats, tuna, chicken, spam or summer sausages and cheeses.) They have no dairy, so nothing that needs dairy added. They are cooking on a camp stove. Mac and cheese, canned soup, fruit, pasta. pancake mix, powered drink mix, tang (do they still make that) powered milk.
batteries, candles, bug spray, solar powered lights. camping meals in a bag. 
Also there are kids, so snacks are great. Oreo's, tasty cakes, trail mix.  
you get the idea. For every item you bring you get one extra raffle ticket.  
Also last year we started the hoodie drive, if you remember we had bags of new and used hoodies to give to the homeless shelters. We are doing that again this year. We will be collecting these at the Nov and Dec Meetings, so please clean out your closets of old sweatshirts and coats. if you don't have any, goodwill and community aid sell them cheap. Go pick up a few at the local store. Men's or women, we will take it all. It's getting cold out there lets help folks stay warm.

THANK YOU JANE HESS for all your help with RMH in 2017...

We are looking to see if there is anyone who would like to head up the Ronald McDonald House Brunch Schedule for 2018?

We love it when new members get involved.




Last Month I Accidentally Omitted an Article submitted by Diane pertaining to her experience working at the Ronald McDonald House. I wanted to share this genuine story from Diane, Thank you!

The most rewarding two hours of my week…

By Diane Clapper

We’ve all heard the saying, “It is better to give than to receive.” That never rang more true to me than a few weeks ago when Rick and I had the pleasure of joining Bob & Jane Hess, Metro & Karen Breski, and Ken & Betty Kemper to prepare brunch for the guests at Ronald McDonald House (RMH) of Hershey through their Guest Chef Program.
Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central PA gives a family with a sick child what they need most — each other. The Ronald McDonald House® of Hershey keeps children and families together by providing temporary housing to out-of-town families of seriously ill children who are being treated at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital.
RMH of Hershey welcomed its first guest in 1984 to its 13-bedroom home. After an expansion in 2010, RMH of Hershey now has 35 bedrooms, two fully equipped kitchens that Rachael Ray would salivate over, and a beautiful, recently renovated Family Room.
When our group arrived at 8am, with groceries in hand to prepare breakfast for fifty people, we figured we had plenty of time! After all, we had a whole hour and eight very talented people on the job!! Well, let me tell you, an hour never flew by so fast! Nine dozen eggs, five pounds of bacon, several dozen sausages, a whole host of hot cakes, and what seemed like an entire field of hash brown potatoes later, we had vittles ready (surprisingly, by 9am)! Granny would have been proud of us!
There were families of all ages, a young mother with a teeny babe that looks as though he/she was no more than a month or two old; grandparents staying at the house because their grandchild is receiving care at the medical center; and quite an assortment in between. One young father thanked us for his breakfast, stating, “It makes me feel like I’m at home, because my wife cooks me bacon and eggs every morning before I go to work.” To give that man some small measure of normalcy amongst the difficulty and uncertainty that he must be facing with his child every day was very touching.
The house is not the only form of support RMH Charities® of Central PA offers at Hershey. The Ronald McDonald Family Room® is located within the Children’s Hospital and offers a comfortable setting for families of pediatric patients. The living area converts into sleeping space at night for family members with children so ill that leaving the hospital for any reason is not an option, and also serves those who live too close to be able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House. Services are provided at no cost to guests using the Ronald McDonald House and Ronald McDonald Family Room. Volunteers also support the family lounges at Penn State Health Children’s Hospital and a Hospitality Cart which offers refreshments, arts & crafts, personal items, and much more. All services are provided at no charge to pediatric patients and their families.
In addition, Ronald McDonald House Charities® of Central PA also supports other not-for-profit programs that assist children in Central Pennsylvania to reach their fullest potential through a community grant program.
Our club proudly serves as Guest Chef three times each year. If you are interested in participating in an upcoming date, please see Jane Hess for details and to sign up. The sense of comradery and getting to know each other better is its own reward!
If you are unable to help prepare and service a meal, perhaps you would like to support RMH by donating needed items. You can view their wish list here and drop off goods at 745 West Governor Rd in Hershey anytime between 9 am & 8 pm, seven days a week.

“We make a living by what we get; but we make a life by what we give.”

ROAD CLEAN UP

BIG SUCCESS

From Karen Breski.

The October Road cleanup was a big success. 14 Parrot Heads showed up to support this volunteer activity and 15 bags of trash were removed from the road. Most unusual things were boots, gloves, TV, and a can with a mouse living in it. Barb Tyree started it off with Pumpkin pudding shots for all. We then went to the Blue Room to complete the party with a purpose.
