January 11, 2017 Eager Beaver Newsletter

 

January 11, 2017

 

Today was a little warmer thankfully as Bill Smith greeted us at the door.  Bryan Dehart had triple duty today beginning with the invocation.  Hank was our songer today and from memory I believe we sang Home On the Range, Four Leaf Clover, and as always, Smile.  Bryan then collected fines as I was doing the newsletter.  Somehow I got out of double duty but he ended up with triple.

 

President Jackie explained some Art Auction details and needs.  To date we have at least 90 tickets sold.  Please remember to bring a dessert dish for the event, and if anyone has white tablecloths to lend please get ahold of her right away.  Connie talked about the upcoming World Affairs convention in Wisconsin and our club may consider sending a student or two. 

 

Bryan then gave a rather lengthy introduction to a guy most of us know pretty well, our speaker of the day Mark Miner.  Mark has been working on the promotion of the Brighton Township Bicentennial with Bryan. Mark shared some of the posts and pictures on Facebook with us via the projector.  Several of them featured our own Harold Reed and were very interesting stories.  Search “Brighton Township, Beaver Pa” on Facebook to see what’s going on there. 

 

As I was sitting next to Harry Kunselman who had to leave early, he handed me his 50/50 tickets and said “pull the ace for me”.  So I did.  Harry’s ticket was pulled, and from a brand-new deck came the Ace of Spades and Harry won about $23.  Congratulations Harry!
