The First Annual Churchill Society Herf - Sat. October 18

We would like to formally introduce The Churchill Society to the on-line cigar community!

The Churchill Society,LLC is our private cigar club that we formed in the spring of 2008 with a small group of us guys from the local smoke shop,The King Street Emporium. Conveniently enough, the club is located directly above the shop! We were looking for a place of our own where we didn't have to worry about anti-smoking laws. So, when the 900+ square foot apartment with yard became available we took the opportunity and ran with it. At the moment we have 30 members. This number continues to grow and we are continually looking for ways, with input from the members, to improve the facilities and the events we hold. For more info, check out our web site.

The Churchill Society

So, what better way to introduce the club that to have a Herf!
The Herf will be held at The Churchill Society located at 320 West King Street in Martinsburg, WV 25401 on October 18th rain or shine. The festivities will start at 10:00AM and run till ?????. The cost will be $5 to help cover the cost of the food. The menu will be Pulled Pork with sides (coleslaw, macaroni salad and a green salad) and dessert (Texas sheet cake). Feel free to bring your favorite adult beverages and we will supply the mixers! Also, you should bring a comfy chair to make sure you have a place to set under one of the 'easy-up' canopies. Parking will be along the street (parking is FREE on the weekends) and in a near by bank parking lot. We are easy to find and just off of I-81.

Click HERE for directions.
*Note* If you're coming from I-81 headed south, Google will try to send you through town (Exit 16). It's faster to get off on Exit 13/W King Street. At the end of the ramp, make a left onto W King street and go 1.3 miles straight a head. We are on the left side of the street at the corner of W King street and Church street.

On the day of the Herf we will hold two raffles and a food drive. Please bring all the non-perishable food items you can! Some items in the first group to be raffled will include: a humidor, cigars and accessories. Since this is for charity, we will also gladly accept donations of items to be raffled off and of courses, ca$h.

Sponsors who have offered to help are:

Cigar Caddy
BOTL, LLC - Palio/Esencia Cigars
King Street Emporium
ManCave Productions, LSC
The Churchill Society
Atlantic Cigars
Bucanero Cigars
Bargain Humidors

Tickets prices for both raffles will be:
1 ticket for $2
3 tickets for $5
7 tickets for $10
15 tickets for $20

Email SmokinAFuente@TheChurchillSociety.com if you would like to donate to this worthy cause! We will update with a list as items come in! ALL the proceeds from this raffle will benefit the CCAP/Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry.

Info on CCAP/Loaves and Fishes:
CCAP maintains a food pantry called Loaves and Fishes, where donated surplus food is distributed. Food is available up to 5 times in a twelve month period to those in need. It has been running for 26 years by volunteers only. So far in 2008 Loaves and Fishes has provided food to 1,419 families! Items that are especially needed include macaroni and cheese, jelly, cereal, peanut butter, canned spaghetti sauce, 1 lb. boxes of spaghetti, soup, canned beans, Jiffy mix for corn muffins, Tuna Helper, small boxes of dried milk and any diabetic food. Stores' 'house' brands work well for donated items.

The second raffle will benefit The Churchill Society. This raffle will be for this framed original oil painting done by our resident artist Ralph Basford, valued at $400. Titled 'Cigar and Malt', and is depicting a tasty smoke communing with a 10 year old single malt. My apologies to Ralph as this photo does not do the painting justice. If your unable to attended the Herf, you can still purchase raffle tickets for the painting. Email or PM me for details.

This should be a great day of smoking, eating, drinking and more importantly, raising some cash and much needed food items for those less fortunate than us. Just think of how many people we could feed if everyone who attended left just one stick at home and used that money to bring more food. The Martinsburg gang: myself, SmokinAFuente, Bacchus and a dozen or two of the local guys are looking forward to seeing you all here! If you plan on coming by please let us know by PM or eMail (SmokinAFuente@TheChurchillSociety.com ).

This post will updated as details come in and are finalized.
Age, experience and deviousness will always overcome youth, exuberance and perceived mental superiority.
