Noon Meeting News – November 14, 2017 – Christmas Tree Lot Presentation

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, some of us are like tea bags , we have to be put in hot water to see how strong we are. So thank You for friends and companions who offer a hand when we are in need. Comfort when we are sad and words of encouragement when we mess up. As Optimist we are blessed with such friends. Since we have no gold to give and love must make amends. Please ,Lord makes us worthy of our friends. Amen!

Heavenly Father we are nearing our favorite times of the year, Thanksgiving and Christmas. Thank You for blessing us and our country at these times Lord.

Today’s Speaker

Debe Dockins introduced our speaker, Gunnery Sergeant Christian Bussler, retired USMC. Sgt. Bussler comes from a long line of military in his family. He joined the Marine Corp reserves after high school. In Dec 2002 his unit was activated to Kuwait, his first tour of duty. On his second tour he suffered severe injuries but considers himself lucky to be alive. On his third tour he was assigned to a mortuary affairs unit where he initiated starching and ironing the flag on each coffin. This, he believes, shows proper respect for the deceased soldier. In order to conquer his demons upon coming home he has written a book. Sgt. Bussler received a standing ovation.

Noon Meeting News – October 31, 2017 – Scott Royal – Haunted Ohio

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father you know what gets us into trouble. It’s what we know for sure that just ain’t so! We are a stiff necked people at times. We are stuck in concrete on what we believe is gospel. We have all lived with mountaintop and valley experiences and I’m convinced we have learned more in the valleys cause that’s where the fertilizers is. Let us learn from our valley experiences so we can change our attitude and led a better life and be open to You wisdom. Make our minds like a parachute Lord, they need to be open before it will do us any good. Amen!

Debe Dockins introduced our speaker from Centerville Washington Township Library, Scott Royal. Scott talked mostly about “Haunted Ohio”, saying that ghost interest is pervasive in our society with books, movies and TV shows on the subject. There are 3 types of sightings, 1 is intelligent where the ghost tries to communicate with the living, 2 is residual where an action by the ghost is repeated over and over, 3 is poltergeist where the ghost attaches to a family member, often a child. Scott talked of ghost phenomena at Victory theater, Patterson homestead, the downtown Courthouse, Air Force museum, Amber Rose restaurant and Sinclair college. Happy Halloween.

Noon Meeting News – October 24, 2017 – Lela Klein – Gem City Market Project

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father for most of our adult life our minds are drawn to the noise of life. On a beautiful day we rarely start the day with a “Thank you Lord.” The news tells us all the bad things that have happened while we slept.
Our minds grasp the ugly and holds on  to it. We become our own worst enemy. You have blest us as Optimist to sluff off the ugly noise of life and hold on to the good. So thank you Lord for this great day and the opportunity to give, especially to the kids .  Amen!

Currently funds are being raised as the 15,000 sq ft market will cost about $4 million to build. Shares are being sold at $100 each and the goal is to have the market employee and community owned.  Over 5,300 children live in the area that Gem City market will serve. Nutritional and cooking classes will be offered and the hope is that the market will become a community gathering place.

Noon Meeting News – October 17, 2017 – Robert J. O’Toole EMT Firefighter Award Presentation

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father you have brought us to the place you wanted us to be. Help us to do your good works. The more we do the happier we become and the more we see to do. So it stands to reason, if we want to be happy we need to do something for someone else. Happiness is contagious and is passed around and it comes back to us. We know that happiness is planting a seed where a flower will grow. Be with us Lord, as we plant
seeds of happiness. Amen!

Noon Meeting News – September 12, 2017 – Cynthia Fraley – Washington Township Rec Center

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father most of us try to avoid failure like the plague. Yet, where does our experience come from if not from failure? Failure then becomes the small price we pay for experience. We are all like tea bags. We have to be put in hot water to see how strong we are. Although some of us have to steep longer than we care to admit. It’s Your way of testing our will and preparing us for greater achievements of the future. Thank you for being there when we are in need, for guiding us in our purpose. May we never let yesterday’s problems destroy the joy of today. Amen!

Phather Phil’s Prayer

Heavenly Father, the joy of living in harmony with you is our greatest pleasure. Seeking pleasure is an all consuming activity in our daily run through life. When bad things happen or our pleasure is removed too many resort to substitute pleasures; Food, drink & pills. These are only temporary and further use leads to addiction. Have us realize when trouble comes our way that prayer is our best solution. You have a junk yard large enough to
hold all our troubles. By placing them with you it gives our mind time to rest so we have the time to listen to our heart. In other words Lord don’t let us squat on our spurs. Amen!

Today’s Speaker

Bob Burkman introduced our speaker, Chuck Thokey. His inspiring story begins with his diagnosis of Educable Mentally Retarded in junior high.  Now days it is referred to as ADD (attention deficit disorder). Chuck shared that most successful sales people and business owners are ADD. Some of Chucks successes include working in experimental aircraft for Lear Jet and in sales for Bath-fitter.  Chuck emphasized the importance of mentoring in this success. He sees the “disability” of ADD as a gift. He shared that he has trouble sleeping, writes everything in notebooks, and has difficulty staying focused. He has been a successful professional speaker for 6 years.
