Can you believe it, summer is almost over? Where does the time go? My summer has been so busy. I retired again June 19th and haven't stopped since. I went to Louisville, KY to see family, spent a weekend in New Yok and have had my granddaughter Holly, age 4, since July 17th. She is with me until I take her home August 11th so she can start school(pre K) in south Florida. Also during this time I have had my house remodeled; all carpets replaced counter tops replaced and the basement water proofed. Still not done yet. Plan to have the down stairs painted also. Wow what a busy summer for me. I hope our summer is going well. September will be here before we know it! Remember, the luncheons are always on the second Wednesday of the following months: March, May, June, September, November, and December. They are at Drake's Landing at 11;30. A quick reminder to you, I will not be at the September luncheon. I'm sorry I will be in Las Vegas, getting rich(Ha, ha!) Phil Butto will fill in for me. I'm sure he will do a nice job and the speaker will be enjoyable. I hope you enjoyed hearing my son, Dr. Jay Brock speak in June. I am so proud of him; he is an amazing young man. I learn so much each time I hear him present a talk.
WE have a new Hospitality Chairperson, Margaret Skripac. I will be working with her to help with the transition. Her email is firstname.lastname@example.org. You should start sending her your lunch reservations when you get this newsletter. Maggie has a few changes she would like to make. Please do your best to accommodate her. Hospitality is a big job, and I appreciate Maggie taking it over. Thank you and see you in November.
