Nick Morrone was born in 1934 in South Philadelphia at the confluence of the Delaware and Schuylkill Rivers. He went to the South Philadelphia High School for Boys. Which was the same as the South Philadelphia High School for Girls just as long as you did not cross the line between the two.
He went to Drexel University where he received his degree in chemical engineering. He also attended Penn State for continuing professional education. He spent 36 years in research and development and retired in 1993.
He has been married to his wife Nina for 46 years and has two sons and one daughter. They are, respectively, a manufacturers rep., a manager for Farmer's Insurance and an elementary school teacher.
Nick also spent 6 ½ years in the Army Reserves.
Dick Sorenson brought him into the club 9 years ago.
PROGRAM: Tim Pollack brought Bob C. from Alcoholics Anonymous. AA has a strict policy of public anonymity which is why Bob's full name cannot be included here.
AA is a self supporting organization for recovering alcoholics. It is a 12 step program that focuses on responsibility through spiritual growth. Each member of AA is responsible for carrying the message of the program to the community through public speaking engagements.

Subject: What a joke! (i'm sure most of this is correct)
5 million of our older Americans have not signed up yet for their
Medicare, Part D, drug plan------they are old and confused. We are not
going to grant them an extension.
However, 12 million illegal aliens are in our country and we are going
to allow them to stay, protest, procreate, receive support monies,
attend schools, avoid paying income taxes, have our teachers take 300
hours of ESL
(English as a Second Language) training at our expense, etc.
WE MUST REALLY DISLIKE OUR OLD PEOPLE......
Thought for today...
If you sometimes get the sudden urge to run around naked. Drink some Windex. It will keep you from streaking.
A woman asks her husband, "Would you like some bacon and eggs? A
sliceof toast and maybe some grapefruit and coffee?" He declines.
"Thanks for asking, but I'm not hungry right now. It's this Viagra," he says.
"It's really taken the edge off my appetite."
At lunchtime she asked if he would like something. "A bowl of soup,
Homemade muffins, or a cheese sandwich?" He declines. "The Viagra,"
He says, "really trashes my desire for food."
Come dinnertime, she asks if he wants anything to eat. "Would you like
a juicy ribeye steak and scrumptious apple pie? Or maybe a rotisserie
chicken or tasty stir fry?" He declines again. "No," he says, "it's got
to be the Viagra...I'm still not hungry."
"Well," she says, "Would you mind letting me up? I'm starving."
