    Thanks to all who made it out to the Carpenter mission this afternoon. SSGT Carpenter's son in law Jerry Flemming is PGR and he expressed sincere appreciation to our being there for the family.

    We had 10 members today. Bob wrangled the flags and brought cold water- thanks for always doing that, Bob. I got to pin one new member. Mary, we're glad you're with us.

    As always we made a difference. Thanks to all for what you do.
