  1. Guest of Rob Ransweiler is Lt. Keith McArthur, ECPD

Lt. McArthur spoke to the club membership about his background. He is currently in charge of the investigation’s division; he has been married for 20 years and has 2 children. Judging from his size, it was no surprise that he had been a college wrestler. Keith is a new member of the Elks Lodge and enjoys playing golf during his off time.

    1. The Melvin Jones Luncheon
  1. The Global Service Recognition on 6/12

  1. Cathy Bailes for the 2nd appearance of our guest paid up $5
  2. Today’s leader Rob Ransweiler paid up $5 for picking Bramwell to lead the song, which was in a very interesting key.
  3. Joke of the day – Ray Hackworth talked about an old man who had a very young wife because he lied about his age, telling her he was 20 years older than he actually was.
  4. 50/50 Winner – Dolores Galkowski $55 donated to the Foundation.
  5. Attendance Drawing was won by Past President Normandy who had left just prior to the drawing.
