2017 Meeting Minutes
Steve called the meeting to order at 7:00. The minutes were
approved as emailed.
The Treasurers report was read and approved. Steve discussed
the income and expenses for the month. A detailed Treasures
report is available to any member upon request.
of New Members: Yeah,
nope. Not tonight
were a few of our members out and about this past month with
the best show being the Great American Beach Party. We were
told that while the crowd may have been lighter than in past
years, they still had a good time and according to Mad Dog,
a Great American Doze out was had by all.
a more serious note, Im sure that you all have heard
of Bob Rogers death. This was a tremendous loss to his
family and to all that knew him. We will miss him terribly.
think I can speak for the Club in saying that our thoughts,
prayers and hearts are with Dolly and the kids.
you all may have heard of the untimely passing of Dave Amchir.
The best that we can figure at this time is that there will
be no changes in either the Tattoo Show or the Toy Run. Steve
is in contact with the members that will be spearheading these
events and will keep us up to date. Blessings to the Amchir
family and in their loss.
There was some conversation regarding the seamless integration
of our new email service. I dont think anyone even knew
that we had migrated over to a new server, other than Steve,
and maybe Lee, and maybe Bradley, and maybe some of the rest
of us. Anyway, nice job and the price is very reasonable.
Thanks to Bradley for getting us taken care of as he disposes
this portion of his businesses.
At this time, I would like to take a break because my phone
just rang out a weather report which is ultimately more important
than any ole meeting we are having.
em if ya got em!
there goes another phone, just another minute while we wait
on someone to answer this one. It may be important. Besides,
I dont know who the heck the number is, but it has to
be more important than this meeting
Okay, lets get back to it
. After further investigation,
it became obvious that we were in for some pretty heavy weather
in the way of severe storms, heavy rains and even a reported
tornado touching down in southeast Broward County.
Looks like we are behind in the monthly event calendar so
dont be shy! Pick a month now, before they are all gone
and lets get our Club out and on the streets to your
favorite restaurant or maybe you favorite hang-out. Doesnt
really matter, weve been all over and there are a lot
more places to go that we havent seen yet. Just pick
a month and pick a spot! Well be there!! Dont
be shy! I have it on poor authority that Davida the
She-man may even be considering a showing and maybe
a special guest star at Lipps! Oh, say it isnt so! Talk
about clearing out the house!?
This month we will be making a special $200.00 donation to
the Compassionate Friends of Fort Lauderdale, in memory of
Bob Rogers. Some of you may know that a number of years ago,
Bob and Dollys youngest son, Tommy, got killed in a
car accident. In order to help with their grief, they were
instrumental in starting the Fort Lauderdale Chapter. This
worthy organization helps children and families that have
lost loved ones in getting them through their time of grief
you know, this time of year, we collect donations and school
supplies for the kids that are supported through the efforts
of the Broward County Women In Distress Center. At any given
time, the Center supports approximately 200 women with children,
but are still in need of these basic items in order to help
the kids start the new school year on equal footing with those
more fortunate students. While they can use most items, they
dont need lunch boxes. Remember these kids get free
and reduced breakfasts and lunches based on their parents
income. But, they do need all of the other school supply necessities.
As you know, we combine the July and August meetings due to
vacations and getting ready for the Tattoo Show. This year
the date of this combined meeting will be July 31st. Also
note that this is the last date that you will be able to donate
school supplies for Evies Kids.
what? If you guessed that it was time to stop again, you win!!
We have to wait while Sam answers his phone, more weather
alerts are going off. REALLY! PEOPLE! Have you heard of the
little button on the side the MUTES your phone? Look, its
there. Geeze! Oh my fault, have to stop to get Roscoe some
How do you like it!?
right along now that phones have stopped ringing and the alarms
have stopped alarming and the dog has water.
own Club clown, world traveler, and newspaper writer Tony
Grasso, has given out his last paper. As you can imagine,
this is a daunting task, and while for Tony it was a labor
of love, it has become a huge task with little or no time
left for himself or his family. If anyone would like to continue,
Tony said that he would love to help out when he can.
it has come down to this: there was a motion made and seconded,
and the meeting was called at 7:36.
of us that were at the new meeting location would like to
take this time to say THANK-YOU (in case you didnt know,
this is a BIG thank-you, get it?) to Lisa and Mike for setting
us up at this restaurant! The owners and the staff really
went out of their way to make us feel like we were at the
home of a friend. The food was excellent, and their servings
are enormous. Even if you dont like Davida (sorry Davida,
but it had to be said. People talk.), you need to come out
for the food! And whats up with those garlic rolls?
Well, maybe youll come on the 31st of JULY, for the
next meeting and see for yourself!
that being said and the meeting is over, our own Big Al won
the 50/50 and donated it back to the Club. Only the second
time in 15 years, way to go!
for you Yankees out thar, I know that you are justa hankeren
for the best part of the minutes, thats right Spunky
its time for your Southern language skill word for the
months word is:
(den-i-grat), adv and adj. a reference to the ensuing
occurrence of something large and/or wondrous. First
ma stomac hert, and denigrate wind came outta ma butt, and
now I feel a whole-lot-betta.
with that, have a great month; and see you all on JULY the
31st for the next Club meeting! Until then, keep your rubbers
on the tar and your shiny side up!
