Congratulations to Bill Deaton, Lake Stockton Area Council of the Blind, chosen April's MCB's Member of the Month. Bill was nominated by Linda Dawes, Lake Stockton. Thank you Bill for all you do and for sharing your many talents with your affiliate and MCB.

Member of the Month Committee

Bill Deaton has been a devoted and valued member of Lake Stockton Area Council of the Blind for over eight years.  At each meeting, affiliate members look forward to seeing what he has made to give away.

Bill donates many wood crafted items including bowls, lazy Susans, jewelry boxes, dogs, cats, birdhouses, and bird feeders that are given away at affiliate meetings.  He donates these items to be sold at the craft room during convention and at Lake Stockton's Auction.  A few years ago, Bill made small picnic tables holding salt & pepper shakers and mustard & ketchup bottles to be given to special guests - MCB officers, board members, and affiliate presidents -- attending the auction.

At the potluck dinner before the affiliate business meeting, Bill helps in providing refreshments by bringing 2-liter bottles of soda.  He plants a garden every year and shares his wealth of tomatoes, onions, zucchini, etc. with others.

Please consider Bill Deaton for the Member of the Month Award.

Thank you.
Sincerely,
Linda Dawes
Lake Stockton Area Council of the Blind
