Last Week’s Program

Backstepping slightly, the week before last June 22, Kathy Wenner and Judy Ferguson confounded us with a mystery: “Was the Sun rising or setting in the stained glass art on the window at Holy Innocents Church?” A great meeting was held on site at the Church, where historic artistic works are on display. The mystery of the sun rising or setting in this magnificent window still remains, however! Solve this one and we’ll really put you to the test, “The Riddle of the Sphinx!”


Boat Ride – Sunday August 27. Gus ‘Skipper’ Fishburne disclosed that the annual boat ride will occur on this date. Everyone should get his or her “sea legs” in order.

Installation! – Jumping back in step, Wednesday, June 28 we held our annual Installation of club officers. This occurred in the Highlands Room of the Thayer Hotel. The cost was $12.50 per person. There was a fresh Crudite & Cheese display, fresh vegetables and dip, fresh fruit & assorted crackers. Beverages consisted of Champagne, Red & White Wine, assorted sodas & bottled water, which all attendee’s enjoyed!

Phil Brillante’s weekly safety tip was a good tip for all in preventing fires in your home garage. Most persons have extra gasoline on hand for various reasons; lawn mowers, etc. Make sure an approved container is used and the gas can is properly stowed away. A great safety reminder, Phil!                                              

Walk of Fame – Still walking.. It is still undetermined at this writing as to where our sign will be placed.
