President Lya rang the bell about 13 minutes past noon.  Mary Ellen’s invocation reminded us of the great value of friendships.  President Lya then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Patty played the piano and Fran led us in singing the “Ballad of Jed Clampett.”  The entire group had a lot of fun with that.  President Lya introduced all of the guests including our two high school student guests and their families.  All were invited to “meet and greet!”  The mystery greeter was Charles Townley who was hiding in the back of the room.
