      Merit Center
      1001 W Erie Road

      We meet the night before to eat like hogs and have a social time at our house.  After the swap meet we go out for supper for steak and prime rib.  One thing about our swap meet that you will notice is that it is more like a family het-together than a swap meet.  We are all great friends, there is no cut-throat rivalry.  Just a great time and a lot of fun.  Hope you can make it!

      Many thanks to all that participated last Saturday. Once the bills were paid I was able to donate 100% of the door and table fees to support a summer camp for kids. A check of $530. was donated to purchase a new septic pump for the camp. Now will be planning the October show. Thanks to all - Wayne
