RAP meets every Thursday at 11:00 AM at the Nile Country Club, 205th & Interstate 5.

JANUARY 9, 2020

On the day after the monthly R.S.P.O.A. meeting (thanks to Cloyd Steiger for his informative presentation and look forward to next month where Bruce Wind will be the speaker), twenty-one men and women returned to the Nile for our weekly get together enjoying friendship and good conversation.  At 12:00 Noon, Cory Ness rang the bell followed by Kathy Ness leading the pledge of allegiance.

In the absence of President Green who is attending Bill Shear’s memorial service, Past-president and current treasurer John Nordlund rapped the gravel and called for order.

Great to see Pepper Pramhus attending her third R.A.P. meeting making her an official club member awarding her with all the benefits membership includes.

For the beverage drawing, Kathy asked Pepper to stir up the chips.  Out came number 21.  A quick look at the logbook showed Al Nelson is today’s winner.

In news from the pension office, sorry to report Craig Vold #3294 passed away on January 6th.  Craig was 75 years old.  He retired in March 2007 after serving 37 years with the department.  His memorial service will be held on January 17th beginning at 3:00 pm at Bothell First Lutheran Church, 10207 NE 183rd St.

The treasurer reported last week the club brought in five dollars.  The checking account balance is up to $882.00.

Celebrating their birthdays this week are Riley Brice and Jim Fisk.  Riley is now 88 years old (still hard as a rock and can outrun anybody in the room), and Jim is 82 years old.  Happy birthday men.

Time for the Severance ten-dollars giveaway.  Kathy asked Shawn O’Kinsella to mix up the chips.  The winning number is 13 belonging to Jim Sharkey.

And now for the laughter.  Kathy stepped up with a story about a little boy asking his mother where babies came from.  The little boy not only learned about how babies are made but also learned how mommy lets her jewelry.

For today’s raffle, Joe Sanford collected one-hundred dollars to give away.  Joe asked the presiding officer to reach into the plastic jug.  After the proper stirring of the tickets stubs out came the number purchased by Shawn O’Kinsella.

Congratulations to all our winners.  See everybody (weather permitting) next week…
