   Prez Ken then made the annoucment
that the next meeting in June will be
Goof & Golf at Hayden Hills, and then
said we could no longer have our own
bar due to liquer laws and their insur-
ance. We had to buy what we wanted
from them in the club house. John said
play begins at noon, and the menu is
barbequed chicken and steaks as usual.
Tony reported on the Temple saying the
closing was still a go for May 31. In their
look for a new place the dues had to
support all the costs. Ken asked if it
would be okay to meet in Albertville
and most said yes, so he said he would
try to line up Emma Krumbies so we
will see what comes of that.
   That is all the news that is fit to
print so take care Nobles and Ladies
until we meet agan, and I am looking
forward to it.
