NEWS AND NOTES
Meeting notes: Carl Smith brought two guests this week, his son-in-law Jeff Hoeft and his grandson, Kevin Hoeft, more about whom later. Jesse Dorshak brought his son, Aristo, who is home on leave. Bob Gross paid a combined happy and anniversary buck, looking forward to a trip with Bev to NYC. Dave Eppelsheimer tossed in a buck for Ricky Weeks' three-run home run. Tom Schultz paid a buck for spending a week with his sister from Wyoming and his daughter from Denver. Carl was happy about a visit to Harshaw, Wisconsin, population about 1600, where he saw a softball game played on snowshoes before a crowd of 500. Ken Snyder paid a buck to tell us about his family's trip to Dyersville, Iowa, to see the legendary baseball field, but he missed Shoeless Joe. John Foley paid a buck to observe that one of his sons is a classmate of the new vice presidential candidate.
Kevin Hoeft was our speaker and told us about his time in Paris, living with a French family and going to school 21 hours a week. Sounds like he met as many Asians and Africans as French citizens.
Sad news: We heard that former member Jake Jacobs died last Friday. There will be a memorial service at Kirkland Crossings in Pewaukee at 2:00 PM on August 25.
Member news: Dick Bachman is at home but will have surgery later this week. Gary Krueger is recovering from bypass surgery and has hit a couple of bumps.
Election results: Two dark horse candidates were elected in our special election this week. Eli Potkonjak was elected as vice president and Ed Ellingson was elected as director.
Golf outing: Show up at 1115 for golf. Happy hour is 1600 hours, and dinner is 1700 hours.
Interclub: Plan on a meeting with the Parkland-Greendale club on September 25, which is the date of the induction dinner.
