                                  Top Ten: Christmas Quotes
Christmas creates a happy and pleasant atmosphere for most people, but the Christmas atmosphere
can be hard to describe in words. Here you have a series of great quotes about Christmas phrased
by famous people.
                                          1. Agnes M. Pharo
 What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a
 fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead
                                               to peace.

                                           2. Carol Nelson
                  Christmas is a time when you get homesick - even when you’re home.

                                            3. Helen Keller
            The only blind person at Christmastime is he who has not Christmas in his heart.

                                            4. Harlan Miller
Probably the reason we all go so haywire at Christmas time with the endless unrestrained and often silly
               buying of gifts is that we don’t quite know how to put our love into words.

                                          5. Shirley Temple
I stopped believing in Santa Claus when I was six. Mother took me to see him in a department store and
                                      he asked for my autograph.


                                      6. Norman Vincent Peale
   Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.

                                          7. Mary Ellen Chase
                         Christmas, children, is not a date. It is a state of mind.


                                          8. W.J. Cameron
                    There has been only one Christmas - the rest are anniversaries.

                                           9. Larry Wilde
  Never worry about the size of your Christmas tree. In the eyes of children, they are all 30 feet tall.

                                         10. Charles Dickens
                   I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year.
                                                                                   Page 11

   We hear the beating of wings over
Bethlehem and a light that is not of the
sun or of the stars shines in the midnight
sky. Let the beauty of the story take
away all narrowness, all thought of
formal creeds. Let it be remembered
as a story that has happened again and
again, to men of many different races,
that has been expressed through many
religions, that has been called by many
different names. Time and space and
language lay no limitations upon human
brotherhood.                                                     607 N. Main Street

CALL TO ORDER: President, Lee VanHarn called the meeting to order at 7:30 pm.
ROLL CALL:        Lee VanHarn, Mike Young, Terry Derks, Jean Richards, Jim Schipper, Gerald Williams and Dick
Valone.
Absent: Tom Aldrich, Stan Robbins. Staff present: Max Gibbs & Kathy Brott
APPROVAL OF MINUTES: September 12, 2008 minutes were approved with one correction.
APPROVAL OF NEW MEMBERS: Motion by Jim Schipper, seconded by Terry Derks to approve the New
Members (21). All Ayes. Motion carried.
Officer Reports: None
Committee Reports:
Rules Committee: Terry Derks reiterated that the Ranger Department will be enforcing the land sticker rule on
all watercraft. A land sticker permits the member to store the watercraft on his/her site or the bullpen, when
not in use. A watercraft with a land sticker may not be stored in the Green area or on the beach.
PARK DIRECTOR REPORT: Max Gibbs, Park Director, reported that the Senior Adult Activities group as once
again generously donated money to help with Park improvements. Some of that money will be used to purchase
heavy-duty chairs for the Recreation Station area. We are currently checking on lounge chairs that are higher
off the ground, so members don’t have to bend down so far to get in and out of them. A new sign will be installed
at the Adult Pool that clarifies that adults are 18 years or older. The Senior Softball players will be pleased to
hear that the Cherry tree on the right field area will be removed. Max reported that we are working on ways to
upgrade our energy conservation. This process has been going on for many years, and we will continue to look for
ways to conserve energy throughout the Park. Max thanked everyone for a great summer and encouraged people
still in the area to stop back to the Park over the fall and winter months to enjoy the beauty during those
months.
