Fred’s Funnies
Two old guys pushing cart in Wal-Mart until they collide. Both were looking for their wives. Guy #1 described his wife, let’s just call her “Gorgeous Gal”. Guy #2 lost interest in finding his own wife so he decided to help guy #1. (for the longer version you really need to attend the meetings...in the future there may simply be emojis cool)

Club Business
President John shared some club business:  The board met last week.  After the club survey the target date for in person meetings will be March 31.  Meetings will be livestreamed as well.
 
Vice President, Destiny Mujica polled members to have the opportunity to share their level of comfort about meeting in person.  She said that the majority of members polled in February felt comfortable going back to in person meetings.  Now that vaccines are becoming available an even higher percentage feel comfortable about meeting in person. There will be another board meeting prior to meeting in person.  We will be following the CDC guidelines.
