Notable Historic Quote - Fate

Ships that pass in the night , and speak

      each other in passing,

Only a signal shown and a distant voice in

       the darkness;

So on the ocean of life we pass and speak

       one another,

Only a look and a voice, then darkness again

       and a silence.



Today’s greeter – Harold Spaeth

Today’s Prayer Bearer – Wm. (Woody) Held

Today’s Program – Open Meeting


                  Rotary Last Week   


“Don’t know why, ain’t no sun up in the sky, stormy weather”. .. That was about it as WHUD Weatherman & meteorologist Jim Witt described weather patterns and forecasting’s based on historical weather occurrences.  Lightning, hail, ice storms &

Hurricanes were the talk of the day.

Lesson for day: If there’s lightning and you’re the tallest thing around, get the heck out of there in a hurry. You can’t outrun it! 

Cathy Kelly said there was no quorum at the Board meeting. She reiterated the call to sell fruit.
