NOVEMBER 2, 2017

Today twenty-seven men and women signed their names to the log-in book to enjoy another week of friendship and good conversation.  At 12:00 Noon Jim Campbell had the honor of ringing the club’s bell signaling all to stand to recite our country’s pledge of allegiance.

In the absence of the club’s real president, past-president and current treasurer John Nordlund gaveled the meeting to order.  Good to see our Prince of Mirth Boyd Brannan in attendance.  Also welcome to Scott Schenck and Scott’s son Mark.  They were hoping to surprise their mother/grandmother Annette.  And hello to Bill Green’s wife Barbara.

First order of business, the Witkowski beverage drawing.  Cloyd Steiger reached into the chip container and pulled out number 15, belonging this week to Ron Haviland.  (John Guich informed us that Tom is back in the hospital.  He does not want any visitors.)

In news from the pension office, Dan is looking for stories about Bob Ammerman, Bob Burns, and Howard Monta.  If anybody has info that can be published in the Guardian call Dan at 206-386-1289.

Acting president Nordlund reported last week the club made $21.00 bringing the checking account balance to $2113.09.  This week no members are celebrating birthdays.

Time to give away five dollars.  Scott Schenck pulled number 23 from the chip container handing our Prince of Mirth the cash money.

To start the laughter, John Guich had a story about two seniors in a boat on a river.  Paul Barden followed with a story about an Irish divorce involving a missing email.  And an old couple in a bar with the lady wondering if she “came” here often.  Good job by all.

For today’s raffle Paul had $115.00 up for grabs.  Mark Schenck reached into the plastic jug and pulled out ticket #433799 held by Dick Rovig.  Dick then pulled out ticket #733711 handing Nick Bulpin the remaining dollars.  Congratulations to all the winners.

Don’t forget the retired officers’ meeting next Wednesday.
