David also spoke about our Italian Dinner which will be here before you know it. Its Thursday, October 17. The donations are coming in nicely and we have some great auction items to give away.

Home of Guiding Hands works with us on many events and it is having an art exhibit on Thursday, August 22nd from 4:00 to 7:00 PM. The clients there are talented and they do beautiful work. You can enjoy their beautiful work and/or

buy whatever you like for your home.  Its free to go in.  Address is 1908 Friendship Drive, El Cajon 92020.

You can make checks out to NFBCA, San Diego.

Edith has a request for a driver for someone who gives many lectures in her community. The person would also carry heavy items to put in the car and take out.  If you know someone, please contact Edith at 619-208-2321. Thanks.

Mark your calendar Sat. Sept. 7 is the 1st District Membership Meeting, location TBD.

Tail Twister today was Tom. Happy Dollars from Brian $40, Kelly $30, Marge $10, $5 each from Mary R., David L., Joyce, Mary Miller. Tom had many questions for us from recent headlines in the newspaper.  All wrong answers were $5 fine and most of us didn't know the answers. So our club made out very well.  The best part was we had fun.

Marge has retired from making birthday bags for East County Meals on Wheel.  Two wonderful people came forward and said they will take over.  Thank you so much Mary Jo and Teri. And a big thank you to Marge for all the years of service to Meals on Wheels.

Program:  Tom introduced Rolph Schultz who was born and raised in Berlin, Germany in 1932.  He spoke about life

growing up in Berlin during the war.
