FOR THE PAST 30+ YEARS, AHJBS HAS REFURBISHED AN ANTIQUE JUKEBOX AND RAFFLED IT OFF IN NOVEMBER. REFURBISHING AN OLD JUKEBOX TAKES SKILLS. OVER THE YEARS, WE HAVE LOST QUITE A FEW OF OUR TOP SKILLED PEOPLE. SOME HAVE LEFT THE CLUB, AND A FEW HAVE SADLY PASSED AWAY. THE AHJBS IS PURELY A VOLUNTEER CLUB, AND WE RELY ON OUR MEMBERS TO WORK ON THE RAFFLE JUKEBOX, AND TO HELP IN SETTING UP AT THE EVENTS TO SHOW OFF THE RAFFLE JUKEBOX. OVER THE LAST 2-3 YEARS, WE SEEM TO HAVE FEWER MEMBERS WILLING TO HELP WITH THIS, AND IT HAS BECOME QUITE A BURDEN FOR THE 4-5 MEMBERS WHO ALWAYS SEEM TO BE THERE TO SET UP AND BREAK DOWN. (AND WE'RE NOT GETTING ANY YOUNGER!) AS SUCH, THE CLUB WILL NO LONGER REFURBISH AND RAFFLE OFF A JUKEBOX EVERY YEAR. THIS IS NOT A DECISION THAT WAS TAKEN LIGHTLY. IT HAS BEEN DISCUSSED FOR ABOUT THE LAST 12 MONTHS. WE WILL NOW BE A "SOCIAL CLUB", STILL MEETING ON THE 3rd TUESDAY OF EVERY MONTH, AND WILL DISCUSS, IN AN INFORMAL SETTING, JUKEBOXES AND COIN-OP MACHINES. OUR FACEBOOK PAGE WAS PRIMARILY USED TO ANNOUNCE THE EVENTS WE ATTENDED, AND SINCE WE WILL NO LONGER BE SETTING UP AT THOSE EVENTS, OUR FACEBOOK PAGE HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN. ALL THINGS HAPPENING WITH THE CLUB WILL BE SHOWN OR ANNOUNCED HERE ON OUR WEBSITE. OVER THE YEARS, WE HAVE MET AND CHATTED WITH MANY NICE PEOPLE AT THE EVENTS WE ATTENDED. THAT IS SOMETHING THAT WE WILL MISS A LOT. IF YOU HAPPEN TO SEE ONE OF US ON THE STREET, STOP AND SAY HELLO AND CHAT, IF ONLY FOR A FEW MINUTES. THE FRIENDSHIPS WE'VE MADE OVER THE YEARS WILL LAST A LIFETIME. LASTLY, WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE BOUGHT RAFFLE TICKETS OVER THE YEARS. YOUR DONATIONS IS WHAT PAID FOR THE FOLLOWING YEAR'S RAFFLE BOX, AND MADE IT POSSIBLE TO RAFFLE OFF A JUKEBOX EVERY YEAR. IT WAS A GOOD RUN, AND WE ENJOYED PRESENTING THOSE GORGEOUS JUKEBOXES EVERY YEAR!

PS   WE NOW HAVE A NEW EDITOR FOR OUR NEWSLETTER, AND WILL CONTINUE TO PUBLISH THAT FOR OUR MEMBERS.
