Program: Because of the death of Cliff’s father and no one volunteered to be a program, there was none.
If you have ANYTHING that the club might be interested in (even if were not) plan to be an EMERGENCY PROGRAM. Ideas: hobbies, sports, that hole-in-one, a vacation, when you were a war hero........
We dismissed early.
