Noon Meeting News – June 6, 2017 – Bill Lane – The Rose Music Center at the Heights

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, how many times have You heard us say, “Why me Lord?”, when bad things happen. Should we not ask, “Why me Lord?” when good things happen? Most of our problems are of our own making. The severity of the problem is in direct proportion to the stupidity of our act. Then we compound it by asking why me Lord. We mistakenly believe we are the makers of all the good things and feel You have allowed misfortune to cast its shadow on us when bad things happen. Have us know that when we want a good day, all we need to do is to give and not remember or receive and not forget. Amen!

Sergeants at Arms 

Member Infraction
Dick Stephens Dick was featured with Centerville dispatch on front of the paper but Dick was wearing a Centerville pin, but no Optimist logo or pin was shown
Deb Saunders Great being early but she gave a $20 bill for the 50/50 contest and made Ron have to count on all fingers and toes
Jack Anderson Ron has been waiting a while to fine this guy. He made Jack stand up and he said “Jack, you’re good looking, tall and well dressed; everything I’m not. I’m fining you for making a sergeant jealous.”
Jerry Stahley Took the flowers from Greg Griffin’s Prize from the Junior Golf Outing and gave them away – Greg said he was giving the prize to Evelyn his wife for an early 30th anniversary gift
Chris McAlpine Will Cale saw – in Florida –  that a Chris McAlpine is a assistant produce manager. So apparently Chris is leading a double life Financial Planning and Produce Manager – both occupations focused on lots of “green” (see pic below)
Bob Bargmeyer Did you sleep in that shirt?


Happy Bucks!
