AUGUST 1, 2019

A nice gathering of twenty-one men and women in attendance today for the weekly R.A.P. Club meeting.  One of our members was on the golf course playing in the annual tournament honoring the naval personnel in town for Seafair.  As 12:00 noon approached Cory Ness rang the bell followed by President Green leading the pledge of allegiance

Great to see Bruce Wind in the crowd.  Bruce was on his way home from Bellingham and decided to stop by to say hello to everyone.

Bill called for the beverage drawing.  Joe Sanford asked Bruce to mix up the chips.  Out came number six (or was it nine).  A quick check of the logbook showed Ivan Feilberg the winner.

In news from the pension office, sorry to report yesterday Jerry Bickel #2487 lost his battle against cancer.  Jerry was 78 years old.  At his request there will be no services.

The treasurer reported last week the club brought in $18.00.  The checking account balance is now up to $2412.00.

Celebrating birthdays this week are John Patrick Sullivan who will be 78 years old and Roy Wedlund.  Roy will be 84 years old.  A birthday card for Roy was passed around for all to sign.

Time for the Severance ten-dollar drawing.  Joe asked Mike to stir up the chips.  Out came number 11.  Another quick look at the logbook showed Bruce Wind the winner.

In the absence of our real Prince of Mirth, Kathy Ness stepped up with a cute story about men meeting their wives in Las Vegas.  Greg Goldwyn tried to top Kathy with a story about a Chinese detective and a cheating wife.  Paul Barden topped both with a story about having your blond wife visit while you are in prison.  Good job by all.

Today Paul collected an even hundred dollars to give away.  Bruce reached into the plastic jug and came out with ticket stub #3743550 purchased by John Guich.  Congratulations to all our winners.

See everybody next week at the picnic.  Don’t forget the white elephant gifts…
