April 2007 Meeting Photos
Our April meeting had two members scheduled to speak to the group but a spring snowstorm kept Ron Ginger from making it down from the wilds of Boothbay Maine so Herb Cotterly had to hold down the fort single handed.
The meeting was not held in our usual hall but rather in the smaller downstairs room. It worked out well for this meeting other than the hanging butterflies that can be seen in a number of the photos below.
President Dick Boucher had mentioned a meeting or two back that we used to have more "show and tell" things being, well, shown and told, and meeting and he asked that embers try to bring in more projects even bits and pieces of projects that others might find of interest. As luck would have it many members chose this meting to respond to Dick's request and so the meeting time was filled with interesting things form many members. A more complete, I am sure, will be in the May Gazette which will be available for download near the start of next month.

9. Do you remember the TV program Cheers? And the character Norm. Remember how Norm's wife was often spoken of but was never seen on the program? Well, the lady to the left in this photo is Rollie Gaucher's wife. Long rumored to exist but to my knowledge never before seen at a meeting. On the right is Bea Boucher Dick's wife.
