Dan's Next-to-Last Meeting
     Club Assembly
Dan kicked off the meeting reminding us that it was flag day, hence his wearing of a tee with a US Flag.  We followed with the pledge of allegiance and the 4-way test and lunch provided by Mr. Pickles.    
We followed lunch with announcements and Happy Bucks;  Joann collected $1 from all meeting attendees that did not have their flag up today.  Key announcements:
  • Make sure and sign up for Dan's Kickout and pinning of our new president Caron.
  • Harveys Memorial will be Saturday at 2pm at LHCC followed by a 5pm toast to Harvey's life as invited by Karen Ulijohn and family.
Dan reported that the Interact Club raised $500 for ShelterBox and the club donated a like amount so that a whole box could be purchased. We were also recognized for our $750 donation to the CofC Leadership Project for the Lincoln Bark Park.
We presented a Blue Badge to Susan Elliott; she challenged those who joined the club before her to complete the requirements.
