Tuesday - October 23, 2012

At our Tuesday weekly meeting, Secretary Charles Hartwig ( # 51) won the pot
on the very first drawing. He was appropriately pleased.

Attendance was 19 members, plus Mario Resendz, a guest of Robert Bahn.


1. Two flag days will be coming up during the second week of next month:
Election Day and Veteran's Day. Flags will go out on Tuesday, November 6th
for Election Day, but Veterans' Day is tricky. The actual day is Sunday,
Nov. 11th, but the Post Office and other federal offices observe the day
[i.e., take a vacation day] on Monday, Nov.12th. HOWEVER, a Veterans Day
parade will take place in downtown Jonesboro on Saturday, Nov. 10th. It was
eventually decided that we will put out our flags and pick them up before
dark on Saturday, November 10th.

2. TV Auction Committee Chair Brad Baker reminded members to pick up
donor and sponsor forms for the December 8th auction, and then use them.

3. President Curt Hodges reminded members that we had all agreed several
weeks ago to take part in a community health fair to be conducted by an ASU
student group called CARE, after a representative had visited one of our
meetings. The health fair will be THIS Saturday, Oct. 27th, from 10am -
2pm in its office at 600-A Marshall Street, a former city Police Substation
in a HUD house. (More details about the fair were in an article in the Oct.
23rd Jonesboro Sun, p. A8.) It was not clear which committee was
responsible for getting club representatives to the fair, but it is
suggested that volunteers check in with President Curt to ensure we honor
our agreement to be there and tell what our club offers in the form of sight
and hearing assistance.


Tony Bari introduced (via a song on his smart phone!) the
speaker, local beekeeper Steve Culp, who gave a fascinating account of his
family's operation here in Craighead County. They now have 800 hives, each
of which has between 30,000 and 40,000 honeybees. In addition to producing
honey from mostly soybean and cotton fields here, most of his hives are
trucked to California each February to help pollinate almonds - 2/3 of the
world's almonds are grown in California's Central Valley now, and the trees
bloom for only a few weeks.
