Opening: Our meeting opened with the ring of the bell and the flag salute led by Marv Doty followed by this day in history (1878 in the old west) and the invocation by Chaplain Wally Johnston.
Guest: Wally introduced Greg Magnus from the Beaverton Police Dept., Greg is our club’s new honorary member for services rendered. Greg was very helpful during last Saturday’s garage sale and loaned us a canopy to keep us dry. He is the police liaison with Southridge High. We made $327.00. Thanks to all who helped in this first garage type sale. A show of hands indicated that we should consider doing this again in the future. Thank you Chairman Wally and Co-Chair Meredith. Thanks also to our frozen women who opened at …Susan & Joan & Meredith and to Joe, Jack, the two Marvs, Gene, Lil and anyone else I’m forgetting.

Jr. Golf: Our club received a request to help in funding six PNW District Jr. Golfers trip to
. The request wasn’t approved by our board. Our funds are skimpy and we did not have anyone we sponsored this year going. Florida
Weekly Raffle: Can it be believed? Alan “Mr. President” has now claimed he won two weeks in a row! How could this happen right in front of us? While we watched, you could see him puzzling over the four tickets in his hand, and then asking the Sheriff for help. He is clever!!! Fortunately Steve actually understands how the raffle tickets work.
