Off The Cuff

June 12th, 2019

There are only a few busy weeks left in Jon Saluk’s presidential term.  Scott Alford led us in the Pledge of Allegiance and Larry Crismond led us in prayer. 

Several Club members represented the Exchange Club at Honor Flight South Florida this past Saturday out of FLL.  Many on the flight were Vietnam Veterans who were getting their long overdue welcome home. The next Honor Flights are both on a Saturday and out of Fort Lauderdale, on September 21 and October 19.

Dawn Hanna of On Behave Dog Training was this week’s speaker and she gave the old dogs of the XC some good Do’s & Don’ts of training.  

In a resolution by The Continental Congress on June 14, 1777 the design of the flag of the United States was established; but it was not approved for national observance until August 1949 by President Harry S. Truman.

Donn’s planning meeting for the upcoming year is scheduled for Saturday, June 22, at Galuppi’s from 9 am -12.  All are encouraged to attend.  Keep an eye out for more info.

We have once again invited all the charities that we support to lunch on Wednesday June 26th to receive their donation checks. It will be a special lunch to have all our hard work appreciated and recognized.

Thursday, June 27, 6 – 10 pm is President-elect Donn Atkins’ installation dinner at Galuppi’s, a not-to-be-missed event. Watch for an email and flyer at home.  Email will come from

Bowling is right around the corner and there is much still to be done.  Steve Izzi has done a great job planning the 2019 Strike Out Child Abuse Bowl-A-Thon set for Sawgrass Lanes on Sunday, July 14, and we are down to the last few weeks and final details.  The committee is looking for teams, sponsors, raffle items and volunteers for the day of the Bowl-A-Thon.  

Tad is coordinating Bar Wars with Grant Galuppi, Galuppi’s and Chuck McLaughlin, Bonefish Mac’s.  They would like to have 4-6 bars enter a team and compete. The winning bar will host the July 31st 5th Wednesday and, of course, have bragging rights.  Spanx the Hog is also signed up in the competition.  Reach out to your favorite watering hole to get them to enter.

Alan Reynolds is heading up the liquor wagons this year.  Please bring to lunch a bottle of booze, a nice bottle of wine or a craft beer to fill the liquor wagon. 

Danny Cline has the Green Egg raffle tickets.  See him to get tickets to sell.  They are $20 each or 3 for $50 and there’s only 250 tickets.  Jeff Realejo will be handling tickets while Danny is on vacation.  If you have not gotten your tickets, please do so.

Steve Izzi has once again secured an anonymous donor that will match all cash contributions in June up to $1,000.  Let’s make sure this donor pays the full amount.

NFL SuperBowl Raffle tickets are in.  There are 125 tickets to sell at $100 each by October 31.  First Prize is an all expense paid trip for two to the Super Bowl in Miami or $5,000.  This is a very profitable fundraiser for our Club.  See Tyler Johnson for tickets.

Danny Cline chose Jeff Realejo for taking over the Green Egg raffle tickets for him as this week’s shaking man and Troy Nelson was the pot winner this week and donated right back to the Club.

An elderly man is stopped by the police at about 2 am and is asked where he is going at this time of night.

The man replies, “I am on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the body, as well as smoking and staying out late.”

The officer then asks, “Really? Who is giving this lecture at this time of night?”

The man replies, “That would be my wife.”
