APRIL 8, 2021

On the opening day of the 87th Master’s golf tournament, twenty-four men and women signed the logbook to enjoy another weekly meeting of the R.A.P. Club International, Chapter 1.

Right at 12:00 Noon, Past President Greg Pote rang the official bell followed by Dick Rovig leading the Pledge of Allegiance.

President Nordlund welcomed everybody and started the meeting by calling for the beverage drawing.  Joe Sanford asked Dean Quall to stir up the chips pulling out number 7 belonging to Paul Barden.

Steve Martin’s Celebration of Life service will be held at the SPAA Pavilion on Saturday, April 24th starting at 1:00 pm.

Our treasurer reported last week the club brought in $23.00.  Checking account now up to $1514.00.

Celebrating his birthday this week is Past President Dave Hortin.  Dave is now 77 years old.  Happy birthday David.

Time for the Kathy & Cory Ness ten-dollar drawing.  Caroll Wedlund mixed up the plastic chips and pulled out number 2 owned by John Guich.

Ray Skagen addressed the crowd about the upcoming book by Jim Ritter about the Seattle Police Museum.  Did you know that Jim was the youngest deputy sheriff in Washington state?  When deputized he was just 18 years old.

Nobody had a joke today, so time for the raffle.  Paul collected $120.00 to give away.  Jim Sharkey reached into the plastic jug and retrieved ticket stub #5436086 handing Cloyd Steiger the big bucks.  The remaining dollars went to Dave Hortin holding ticket stub #5435979.
