Picture - Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Thanks to all our volunteers who rang bells on Friday for the Salvation Army.  Thanks to John Merten (our head ringer), Norbert Kerr, Laura Lockwood, Marie & John Wicks, David Bueche and Ken Dimoff. Please let me know if I missed you so we can give credit where credit is due.

Happy Bucks from today’s meeting:

  • Barb - told a few bad jokes

  • Norb - for the Spartan basketball wins, Salvation Army bell ringing and an Olie & Lena joke
