January 31, 2019       Be An Inspiration!


Jan. 24 program:

What an inspiration to see our grant dollars at work! Three of the Little Masters Players entertained us with their musical prowess as a result of our $11,000 grant to supply students from under served communities with musical instruments of their own along with lessons from UD music program students. In February a second round of students will get their instruments. Thank you, Michael Luck for overseeing this grant.


We also got to say goodbye to two long time members. Mary Konwinski will be relocating to North Carolina and Gene Dannemann will be moving to Glen Mills, Pa. We will miss both of you.


And our fond remembrances of Steve Amick brought tears to our eyes. Steve was a charter member and will always be in our hearts.

Thought for the Week: Lessons learned the hard way:

The most destructive force in the universe is gossip,

followed closely by social media.
