President Frank Frerich lead the meeting, the Pledge of Allegiance and “God bless America”, David Huelsmann gave the invocation. 11 members were present plus the volley ball honorees from 4 high schools.


Recovering members: Frank Frerich was back after a heart attack, several days in the hospital and a stent in an artery, recovering well. Ralph Peppard joined us again after two hospital stays for a serious infection and is still on the mend, receiving daily infusions at the doctor’s office. Members wish both of them well.

Flag Placement: The November 11, Veterans Day, placement of flags in the Loveland area did not take place, since snow had covered the marked support pipes and the wind and cold would have made it too hard for volunteers to place and pick up the flag. The willingness of members to volunteer under the leadership of Dennis Cronin was appreciated.
