I was on vacation and I received only the results of the Ladies Sept. 7 activity.
The lady golfers showed up but so did the lightning and thunder with a dash of rain. This frightened away all but two golfers. True to golfing were Pat Berglund and Carol Bond.
There were 16 ladies for luncheon and dominoes. Thelma Raines and Peggy Mollett served desserts and game treats.
Winners of the dominoes progressive Mexican train were Eileen Turner with low, Peggy Mollett with high. Babe Hurowitz, Barb Larson and Ardyce Meisenholder had the lowest rounds.
A special thanks to Barb Larson for donating all the trains and another domino set for our games.
The thought for the day from Mary Bartels: Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
Thank you Mary for helping me with the updates.
