HAPPY NEW YEAR Everyone.
It is with sadness that we notify you of the death of Dick Brown. He past away the end of December. We will all remember Dick and his newspaper clippings. Our condolences to his family.
During our December meetings, several items were completed by year’s end. Along with which, we said “hello” to 2 new members: Jack and Patricia O’Reilly.
At the start of our first meeting Rodger Williams entertained us. Rodger, who has worked for Lull Farms (David Orde) for more than 30 years, is from Jamaica, working as a seasonal worker. He works about 8-9 months a year for Lull Farms, away from his family. He is normally home from December to the start of April, when he heads back to Hollis. His talk about working here in the United States these past 30 years, our customs, his customs and being away from his family, provided a most interesting presentation.
Our next meeting was our Christmas party that included music by our own Paul Gauvreau and a Yankee Swap. It was evident that a great time was had by all, especially the swapping of gifts that provided some laughs. Check our web site for more photos (in color.
We then finished up the month on the 19th of December with our monthly business meeting along with cake, ice cream and birthday announcements. The following Thursday was Christmas and thus no meeting.
