were so choked up as our new president stepped to the podium
and boldly tapped the bell, that the song barelypassed the lips of the awe inspired members.They did slowly recover, but the song bore little
resemblance to the one we are used to.Following a hearty Salisbury steak and potatoes fare,
the fines began - almost all aimed at the president.Inexperienced, the president actually declared that
the first fine (25 cents to fine him for starting late)
better as the meeting went on.No guests today!We need prospects. Among the announcements: Bob
Gallagher is in the hospital but is now doing better.Use your influence Bob - get out.B Bingo had 164 players on the 3rd - the progressive

place of an SOD, we were treated to plaguing and pinning
today.In recognition of a great year, Phil Grimm received a
‘well done’ plaque.Thanks Phil. (The past president’s pin is on
backorder.)The incoming president received the President’s pin
and officers received the pins of their offices. Our new
prez will be presenting ‘Keys of Excellence Sertoma Key
Tags’.The very first was awarded at the CLC to Norm Selby
for his super work in organizing the Lemonade Sale. The
second went to Secretary Mike Ballew for organizing the
president (or something like that).
Program - Rev Jim Walters.Jim gave us a great present- action
on ‘Burma Shave’ signs.These are instantly recognized by any member who grew
up in the 30’s and 40’s or 50’s.In many cases they represent the closest thing to
culture some of our guys know.Jim, pastor of the Bear Valley Church, told us the
story of Clinton O’Dell, Burma Shave Cream, and the signs
that successfully sold the product.The program was introduced by John Vierthaler, who
says he has a connection with Jim through their kids.Interestingly, several of the ‘poems’ were from
the year of John’s birth.Extra credit if you know what year that is.
Jim - great program!
