Macker to Have Registered Officials This Year to Curb Rough Play

The Quincy Exchange Club is actively addressing a major concern about the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament which is set for May 24 and 25. That concern is the officiating that has taken place over the years, which has led to some "rough" play on the courts. That major concern was addressed and the Exchange Club has done away with volunteer court officials called "Gus Busters." This year's tournament will have registered officials working on all youth and adult courts.

Toys for Tots Campaign Starts November 13

Toys for Tots program local coordinator Steve Lindsey and Marine Corp Sgt. Jonathan Schulte were recent guests of the Quincy Exchange Club.  According to Mr. Lindsey, a retired USMC veteran, the Toys for Tots program got its start in Los Angeles in 1947 when a Marine Corps Major’s wife made a Raggedy Ann Doll and she asked her husband to give it to someone but there wasn’t anyone to give it to. From that came the birth of the program which established a Toys for Tots Foundation in 1948.
