Holy Cow! If you missed this meeting, you missed one of the most well-attended, fun meetings so far this year. The Cafe treated us to ‘steak on the barbie’ with plenty of shrimp to round out a great repast. Prior to succumbing to the need to sleep off the great meal, we conducted the usual business and then proceeded to a great program presented by Professor Dick Richards who is a famous painter of colonial architecture.
Our newest Sojourners, who were initatied at the last meeting, received their official welcome packets which included their membership card, badge, medal, name tag, official coin of the National Sojourners, all the Sojourner booklets, and a complimentary print of the Governor’s Palace at Williamsburg, Virgina, painted by artist Richards.
Our Chapter was presented a certificate by the Henry Leavenworth Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution for an outstanding “Building of the Flag” presentation held at June’s Cottage.
Next meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 4, 2016 at the Cafe, Abernathy Building, 1102 N 2nd St., Leavenworth, KS. Gather at 6:00 pm, Dinner at 6:30 pm, Meeting at 7:00 pm. Brothers, you are encouraged to bring your lady. Meetings are usually over well before 8 pm.
Dinner is $10 per person. Please let Brother Dick know you are coming so we have a meal ready for you. But, please, if you say you are coming, come. You are obligated to pay for the meal whether you show or not. Bring $US cash. The Cafe does not accept devil’s dollars (i.e. Euros).
At the next meeting, we will be hosting a pike-chucking demonstration. Yes, our colonial forefathers used pikes to help keep the ranks in line across the battlefield. Our two Seargents Major will be showing both the rank-closing techniques and the art of catching a pike while in flight … with their teeth… blindfolded. Should be interesting.
