Social Announcements

Our Mystery Location Golf Tour was held on June 13 2007. As everyone found out when we arrived, our destination was the course at Candle Lake managed by none other than our former club member, Mike Jenkins. It was a great time for everyone who attended ... and a decent turnout at that. Thanks to all the organizers for their effort.

Heather Whyte says July 14 is a possible date for a summer social but nothing has been decided yet. The date may change.

General Announcements

Various infomercials from members.

Speaker | Quinn Magnuson of 1-800-Got-Junk

Quinn Magnuson of 1-800-Got-Junk started in Vancouver in 1995 and has become a wildly successful franchise. Quinn was previously a teacher at Holy Cross High School. He also played professional football a while for 4 different CFL teams. His wife was working in the photography industry. A short while ago, he and his wife decided to take a chance and get into business for themselves so they started a Saskatoon franchise. Customer service is Quinn's primary goal. They offer their customers time and space ... two things that are difficult for the average person to get these days. They always give an estimate before they start. You don't have to package things and get them ready for pickup. You don't need to wonder if they are casing your home when they come. They carry insurance. Jack asked if they can take hazardous wastes. They cannot because they aren't equipped for that but they can refer you somewhere if you have that need. Quinn says that they have grown 50% over the last year and expect to move from 2 to 3 trucks and 6 to 9 employees by next year.

Last year 50% of what they picked up was recyclable or donated. Quinn had some giveaways if you successfuly answered trivia questions.
