Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces from all wars.


On this beautiful day 40 members and guests came out to celebrate Memorial Day, enjoy the company of friends, play games and eat lots of good food.  Club President Art Roberts led the group in the pledge of allegiance to the flag.  He then turned the party over to Ron Dawson who  started the day by explaining the meaning of Memorial Day and how it got started. 

Ron and Joan Dawson planned the day and all the food as well as all the decorations.   The serious kitchen work was handled by Ron and Joan along with contributioins from some of the other members.

The day's activity started out with a one bowl roll to the target.  The three nearest bowls to the target center won prizes.  The three winners were Virgil Lockhart, Pinky Palladino and Bob Smith.The main game for the day  was where we used a tin can with a yard stick attached to measure for points.  This way both teams can earn points in each end.
