Meeting Notes - Sep 28 17
  1. Invocation:  Roger Bettmann gave the invocation and led us in the pledge of allegiance. 
  2. Treasurer's report:  It was reported by Jim that there was $5944.00  (Actually, $5,944.59)
  3. Guests:  It was determined that there were no guests.
  4. Fines:  Neil called the $$$ from the common folk.
  5. Measuring Ceremony:  Jim drew his measuring tape and measured up Neil for his final journey (which we hope is a long time from now, but brought a good laugh from the group)
  6. COPE Raffle:  The 28th was the final day to buy a raffle ticket or two for COPE Football Ticket Raffle.
  7. President's daily question:  Who was last signer of Declaration of Independence?? The Signer. Charles Carroll of Carrollton was one of four Marylanders to sign the Declaration of Independence and the last person to sign.  He was a Roman Catholic and late because he was out checking on the Notre Dame Football Score.
  8. Speaker of the Day:  Neil introduced our speaker, John Reichmuth, President of Mortuary and Cremetory of that same name.
  9. Jon  gave a history of the Reichmuth Mortuary,  The beginning  of the Reichmuth Funeral Home dates back to 1938 when Charles G. Swanson established the Swanson Funeral Home in Valley, Nebraska.  In 1950, he opened the Elkhorn funeral home, in Elkhorn, Nebraska.  William Reichmuth joined Mr. Swanson in 1961 and took over management in 1971 when Mr. Swanson retired.  In 1989,  the business purchased the old Lutheran church in Yutan and established a branch.  William and Jon Reichmuth purchased the business in 1991 and renamed all the locations, Reichmuth Funeral Homes, establishing the family funeral home locations we know today.  In 1995, Jon purchased the Hadan Golden Mortuary in Bennington, Nebraska and has operated this location as Hadan-Golden-Reichmuth Mortuary.  The Bennington funeral home has its origin prior to 1920.  The funeral homes are currently owned and operated by the Reichmuth family. (The preceding was download from the Reichmuth web site.)
  10. Balance of Jon's Discussion:  Jon Recommended that folks plan ahead for their final funeral needs and make decisions on services and preparation, including cremation.  He recommended that your final story should be prepared so that family and friends know about you.  He called it a "Talk of a Lifetime)..   Jon pointed out 50% of folks chose cremation now days with 80 % buying an urn.  Jon mentioned the state regulations on scattering of ashes and the balance of his presentation involved a discussion of various interesting scatterings of ashes, including loading in shotgun shells and made into jewelry.
  11. Someone won the Red Ball in the drawing and is the winner.
Jon Reichmuth - CEO Reichmuth Funeral Homes
