Our ship has come in! Unfortunately, we were at the railroad depot. In a pre-snow, cold, January evening, the gang gathered at Pullman’s in Leavenworth for the first meeting of 2017. Keeping with the railroad motif, a train whistle was plainly heard when the idea of initiating a new member was proffered.
President Bro. Barry engineered a fine initiation ceremony for Bro. Robert LePreze who is now a Sojourner in good standing. After making the grade, he’s seen in the picture (left) shown holding his new Sojourner’s medal.
We remember our good friend Brother Joe Madenjian was seen on a video taken this past Thanksgiving.
Next Sojourners meeting will be held on Wednesday, February 1, 2017 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). Stay tuned, because we may change venues due to a change in commitment by the Cafe.
