Fines:   Don was asked to start the song, which he did just fine. The problem was, nobody followed so a fine was proposed to Don which was amended to fine everyone for not following. The whole thing failed……John Vierthaler was fined because he thinks he is always on time to the meeting….WRONG, it passed.

Announcements:  It’s Pi day: π

Where is Peter ?? Scott Manley took over again and someone mentioned they thought he was in the hospital (or was it he was just visiting. Hey Peter, what’s going on? Give someone a call.

Dick Enslow reminded the club that there will be a short meeting after the regular lunch meeting next week to discuss the upcoming Golf Tournament for this year. All are welcome to attend.

Rick Jacobus wasn’t here today so he did not hear the “THANK YOU” he received for all the work he does with the Freedom Week event. He has headed up the committee for a few years now.

Went to H.S. there and it is still standing. The river that runs through it is the Arkansas (pronounced Ar Kansas. With a draft number of 23, Bruce just missed being called into the service in the early 70’s because Viet Nam was winding down and Saigon fell.

Bruce married Kathleen in 1976 and graduated from Vet school in 1977. They have twin sons born in 1982 and graduated from KS St. Bruce now owns the cat clinic but is semi-retired and sells cat litter.
He mentioned Garden City had the largest outdoor concrete swimming pool that was free until they added things like a slide and now charge to use the facility.
