Chuck Shonkwiler offered three EXPIRED ferry tickets for a river or bay in Greece for a prize for any collector of expired tickets, but got no takers. He then suggested a two-table contest to answer the following test of kids from the 1940s & 1950s that I had brought.

01. After the Lone Ranger saved the day and rode off into the sunset, the grateful citizens would ask, "Who was that masked man?" Invariably, someone would answer, "I don't know, but he left this behind." What did he leave behind?

02. When the Beatles first came to the U. S. in early 1964, we all watched them on the ______________________show.

03. Get your kicks, ___________________________.

04. The story you are about to see is true. The names have been changed ____________.

05. In the jungle, the mighty jungle, _________________________.

06. After the twist, the mashed potatoes, and the watusi, we "danced" under a stick that was lowered as low as we could go in a dance called the _________________________.

07. N_E_S_T_L_E_S, Nestle's makes the very best, _______________.

08. Satchmo was America's "ambassador of goodwill." Our parents shared this great jazz trumpet player with us. His name was, __________________.

09. What takes a licking and keeps on ticking? __________________.

10. Red Skelton's hobo character was ________________________. Red always ended his television show by saying, "Good night, and_________________."

11. Some Americans who protested the Vietnam War did so by burning their______________.

12. The cute little car with the engine in the back and the trunk in the front was called the VW. What other names did it go by? ____________________&_____________________.

14. We can remember the first satellite placed into orbit. The Russians did it; it was called _____________________.

15. One of the big fads of the late 50's and 60's was a large plastic ring that we twirled around our waist; it was called the _________________________.

Every table answered every (obviously, too easy) question, so no losing table had to pay a quarter.




October 17 – Regular meeting at 7:00 a.m. at Scovill Golf Course Banquet Facility

October 18 – Elephant Ear Trailer cleanup at 9:00 a.m. at Mark Kennedy’s storage building

November 7 – Board meeting at 6:50 a.m. at Perkin’s

October 24 – Fall hot dog roast at Stu and Barbara Hawbaker’s






VP Hugh Rowden reported that we’ll soon set the date for our annual October hot-dog roast at Steve and Pam Wentworth’s country farm home. At the board meeting we talked about how we want to reward our spouses for their past (and hopefully future) assistance with our big fund-raisers by catering more parties rather than potlucks.

OCTOBER 10, 2014


  18 members came for good fellowship, tasty breakfast, and timely announcements on a social meeting. President Chuck Shonkwiler conducted the meeting and welcomed back Rick McVey who had been missing some meetings. No doubt he came today to pick up his second quarter dues statement from treasurer, Alex Prather. Jim May brought a few more acorn squash and a zucchini to share. Half of the zucchini is already baking in Verlyn’s zucchini bread.





  VP Will Sudduth announced that next Friday, August 22, Dave Shields has invited RN Ann Scott, to speak about organ donations. On August 29 we’ll socialize. Here are September assignments: 5 – Norm Jensen; 12 – Mick Hoehne; 19 – Stu Hawbaker; 26 – Social meeting.







Deputy Sheriff Stu Hawbaker Mike Borders began his duty by telling of his search for some memorabilia for Dick Vissering regarding First National Bank at the David Jack estate sale last week. As he was loading a desk for some successful bidder, he discovered a small box with the name of his bank, and presented it to Dick today. So his trivia question was: “What year did the name of the bank change to First National Bank?” He collected from everybody before asking Dick the actual year, 1965. Mike then made Tom Smith a happy three-week roll-over 50/50 winner.






VP Norm Jensen has scheduled the trailer cleanup on October 18, dependent on the weather, at Mark Kennedy’s storage shed on Old 36 Highway about a block west of Wycle’s Road. He also reported that at last Tuesday’s board meeting we approved a ‘delayed’ hearing aid application that was eligible for a Starkey Foundation instrument at Smith’s Hearing Aid. Alex Prather is dropping off our $750 check to the WSOY Food drive today.


                         FUTURE PROGRAMS


VP Will Sudduth reported that next Friday Ron Wilson has invited Stacey Young from IP Ameren to speak. On October 24 Hugh Rowden will bring a speaker and on October 31 (Halloween!) Chuck Shonkwiler has invited Ann Mathieson, new principal of Enterprise Montessori Elementary School to explain that teaching concept.



VP Lance Gauble announced that at the Tuesday board meeting we learned that Tom Smith’s guest, Cary Hise, is expected to turn in a membership application soon.  Lance then uttered the famous plea, “BRING MORE GUESTS.”
