WOW ! what a great day for a meeting! After the bell rang and Dave Bishop our speaker gave his breakfast order, Marv Doty gave the flag salute and invocation. We did have a nice group this morning to share the morning and listen to Dave as our speaker (more later)
Guests this morning were Sunny Kwon and Sara Ah invited by Joan Andersen wells. Jim Macfarlane, Dave Bishop (speaker) past Beaverton Police, and Jocelyn Taylor of Pal, invited by Bruce Buffington this month’s speaker chairman. Welcome to all and please join us again soon.
Without our Sheriff on hand our pres. had no daily raffle or pin and badge check this morning. However to recoup our losses we sang happy birthday to Joan Andersen wells who emptied her piggy bank with loose change. Not what a raffle would bring Mr. President but not a total loss.
“This day in history” 1810 and 1974, In 1810 the Pacific Fur Company 1st ship lands in
to begin fur trading with Jacob Astor. (Actually Jacob’s
ship left Astoria Oregon on this day and 6 months later arrived at the mouth of the
New York Columbia River where Jacob established his fur trading Post. The idea of
the business came from Lewis and Clark where they pointed out we could ship the furs to cheaper than sending them back to China Europe. The
city of was captured by the British during the 1812 war.) In 1974
President Ford gave Richard Nixon his pardon. I’m sure the re-write will give
you the rest of the story. Astoria
This Saturday 9-10 our club will man the food booth for the Candle Lighters (kids with cancer) Marv Doty will chair.

Then Dave explained how he has kept busy in speaking engagements within law enforcements and other local boards he is involved with. Dave through the years has always been featured speaker at our club, as he remarked we were the first club he spoke with when coming to
