We greeted and sang to Mike Ackerman, Debra Henry and Hubby, found by Mike Colgan, trolling for Rotarians at the Farmers Market. Hope they come again. Birthdays and anniversaries for Jos include uncles Herman and Ramon, nephew Mario Jos , in-laws Mario and Lourdes, and last but not least, leaving Spain 45 years ago. Then the death of Wild Bill Hickok in 1876, Wayne s daughter-in-law Oksana is 21, Mike Moody s birthday, Sherry s friend Pat s birthday, great grandson Austin s 4th birthday, Don and Sandy's anniversary.

Over 4,000 pairs of shoes for the kids, or-ganized by guest Kristy Smith. Great Job There is only one boss. The customer. And he can fire everybody in the company from the chairman on down, simply by spending his money somewhere else. Sam Walton Charlotte County! 50/50 drawing congratulations to Austin, and a big thank you for the generous donation of $27 to Pocket Change for Polio. Watch for the Tropical Storm moving towards the Florida Peninsula. Wayne will update as it gets closer.
5 Guest Speaker this week was our own Carol Stevens with a very informative presen-tation about the use of lasers in the periodontal field. She showed video clips, examples of radiograms and photos of miraculous results with lasers in her dental practice. I will attest to the fact she used her laser on me, and am extremely happy with the results. Stephen led the Four-Way Test.
