Last Week’s Program

Pres. Jerry Sheehan talked about 9/11 & showed a film on it. Jerry was the commanding officer of the NYC Police Dept. Bomb Squad on 9/11/01 and was at the scene shortly after the hijacked aircraft struck the WTC. (This was a program that will vividly remain in our memories for the rest of our lives. I’m sure that each of us offered silent prayers for the victims of that horrendous event as Jerry tearfully presented the program.

Welcome back, Harold! Harold Spaeth was back with us after recuperating from some surgery. He looked well and sounded terrific.


Dave Weyant informed the members that the new weather calendars are in and will be distributed shortly. His sample showed a superb job, which boldly displays our club’s name. They will sell for $7.00 per.


Phil Brillante’s weekly safety tip! Once again, Phil’s message was received by the medium of E.S.P. It cautioned us to be aware of the changing of the lighting conditions while driving. The days grow shorter and the sunlight on the horizon can play tricks.
