GOOD OF THE ORDER:

 Hot off the presses!  Our 2016 membership roster will be available for you to pick up at the April 8th General Meeting thanks to Frank Weiler.  He invested a lot of his time and energy into this project for your convenience.  Next time you see him, give him a hand shake.

Sorry John Mumford, at the March 11th Corned Beef Pot-Luck meeting, you lost out in being the big buck Name Tag drawing winner.  In order to be a winner, you must be in attendance.

 

SIDE NOTE:

5 Older Adult Truths!

1.  Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know
what time it is.

2.  Nothing stinks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3.  I totally take back  those times I didn't want to map when I was younger.

4.  There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5.  How the heck are you suppose to fold a fitted sheet?
