FROM THE PRESIDENT
After reviewing last year’s May President’s message, I discovered we live in seasons or rhythms!
Last year at this time, Pat Peterson had organized a field trip to a shooting range, this year over this past weekend she found another opportunity for us to learn gun safety, gun handling, and the difference between semi-automatic and single and double click guns! There were 22 participants, an amazing turnout!
This time last year, we had just found our new location to host our Tuesday evening Mixers, 1212 on the promenade! This restaurant has truly accommodated our group with zero judgement or discomfort. So sad that those are unusual attributes!! BUT thankfully this relationship has developed mutual respect over the year!
It is a time too, to honor our mothers as Mother’s Day approaches. Thank G-d we are in the party that recognizes babies’ lives matter!!! Please note a very special door prize will be awarded at our upcoming Journalist Panel lunch meeting – will it be you???
Susan Poon’s father, Chuck Lehman flew in to town to enjoy his family and graciously agreed to address our group at our April lunch meeting. The buzz was high that the discussion was quite engaging with topics otherwise top PC to discuss!! Thank you Chuck!! His blog is equally informative, you are all welcome to subscribe as a link is included in our Newsletter for your convenience.
End of May we have our Memorial Day, to honor those brave men and women who believed in our country, our liberty, and our constitution to the degree it was defended with their lives! Please join us at the Woodlawn Cemetery for a moving ceremony Memorial Day weekend. Details in our Community Action report.
