At the club's regular meeting Tuesday, November 8, a good Samaritan overheard us discussing and voting on an advertising expenditure of $195. Before he left the restaurant, he visited our table and gave a member the cash to cover the ad. He left before we were able to thank him.
Thank you, Sir. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
