Exempt Badges for January AND February: Chris is Exempt thru 6/30/2022. Roger for his upcoming extended trip to Puerto Rica. Cathy because she’s planning on causing trouble at future meetings and wants to be covered. Mike Raney because he couldn’t let a good ‘deal’ get away. Paul Tremblay for probably the same reason. Len Blottin just wanted to keep Roger ‘honest’. Kirby because he was happy we had a Martin Luther King Day celebration/meeting today so he could have lunch with friends.
Happy Dollars were:

.Mike $20 shared 3 stories of his encounters with people of color.
.Yvonne $5 had a great time as a scorekeeper last week for the Randy Jones Invitational Golf Tournament at Singing Hills – long day, caught a terrible cold, got a bad sunburn but super fun.
