Kasey gave an update on the Garden House fund raiser which was last Sunday. 
 
 Exemption for next month was awarded to Steve Carnes, so he won’t be fined for his anniversary.  
 
Andrea won the drawing for the 1st PHF quartet and Nick won the drawing for the second quartet.  We will draw again next year for the second PHF awards on both quartets.
 
Tonight is Awards Night at the High School.   We will be awarding five $2,000.00 scholarships to graduating high school seniors.
 
Don was fined $20 for making Pete lose his train of thought.....nice to be able to come up with an excuse, Pete.
 
Max was our featured speaker today but was unable to come due to sickness, so we had talks by a few of our members. 
 
Dan gave a quick talk on his time in law enforcement, including being involved in saving the life of a young boy who was choking.  His nick name was “Soft Serve”, because he is big, but nice. 
 
Chuck, who was looking very dapper in his classy sear sucker suit coat, told us about a time he was summoned to a Four Star General’s office for a special assignment.  He had a meeting at the White House Situation Room with Henry Kissinger and others.  Yes, Chuck, you have had a very interesting life!!
 
Ken Stilts told us about a time when he was with the Flying Samaritans and he had to pull a tooth in less than ideal conditions.  Dentistry is scary enough in the best of conditions!!
 
 
Tom drew for the 50/50 and it was won by Greg Hardcastle.
 
Next week will be Beth Raub from the Human Trafficking Task Force.  Don’t miss this meeting!!
