JUNE 6, 2019

On the 75th anniversary of D-Day, twenty-nine men and women signed the logbook to enjoy another week of friendship and good conversation. At 12:00 up Noon, Joe Sanford rang the bell, the pledge of allegiance was recited followed by Past-President Nordlund calling the gathering to order.

Hello to Ted Rovig and Rita Guich. Rita brought a cake for all to share in helping John celebrate his birthday.
For the beverage drawing, Joe had Shaun O’Kinsella mixed up the chips. Out came number 11 today belonging to Riley Brice.

In news from the desk of Dan Oliver, sorry to report that Bob Parke #2163 passed away on June 3rd. Bob was 90 years old. You may remember Bob was the South-End Juvenile Detective and helped with the George Jugum case. Also, Wednesday, June 12th is the pension board election. Joe Bouiffou is running for a board position and needs all the votes he can get. Per state law ballots are only available at Police Headquarters.

Our treasurer reported last week the club brought in $2.00. That money brings the checking account balance up to $2717.00.

Celebrating their birthdays this week include Lynn Coney who turns 85, John Guich is 76 today, and Dan Melton is now 75. Happy birthday men.

Time for the Severance ten-dollar drawing. Nick Bulpin stirred up the chips and pulled out number 15 belonging to Dan Melton.

In honor of D-Day and all the men and women serving in the military, Kathy Ness stepped forward and sang God Bless America. Thank you, Kathy, great job.

Now time for the jokes. Kathy remained at the podium and told a cute story about driving senior citizens. Greg Goldwyn reminded all that today is National Donut Day. He told a story about a wife giving a little too much information to the friendly police officer. Then Joe Sanford helped continue the laughter.

For the raffle Paul Barden collected $115.00 to give away. Nick Bulpin reached into the plastic jug and came out with ticket stub #3742371. Cloyd Steiger had already memorized all his numbers and quickly claimed the big dollars. The remaining money goes to Rudy Sutlovich who purchased ticket #3742337. Congratulations to all the winners.

Don’t forget next Wednesday is the retired officers’ meeting. Be in attendance to learn the history of our motorcycle drill team…
