Off The Cuff

October 10th, 2018

It was a power lunch at the yacht club for the Exchange Club boys as we hosted the top echelon of Lighthouse Point government. Brad Harris led the boys off with the pledge and Wayne Myers led us in prayer. Tyler Johnson introduced his guest Jeff Realejo for a second visit. President Elect Donn Atkins was back with us, great to have him back. Word from Earl is Jack Krutek is doing well from surgery last week and we look to have him back with us shortly.

We were honored to have LHP Mayor Glenn Troast speak about the upcoming GO Bond on the ballot November 6th. LHP is looking to do some much needed upgrades to the Fire Station, Library and Community Center & Public Works building at Dan Witt Park to not only bring them up to the new millennium but also Cat 4 & 5 storm proof as well to better serve the residents during and after a major storm at a small cost to LHP residents. Each department head spoke briefly about their aspect of the project with a final passionate word from XC member and Past LHP Fire Chief Dave Donzella of the imminent need for this GO Bond to pass on election day.

Will Askew named Earl Mauker for all he does for the Club as this week’s shaking man and the 50/50 pot was won by District Director Nico Winningham.  




Why Go to Church

One Sunday morning, a mother went in to wake her son and tell him it 

Was time to get ready for church, to which he replied, “I’m not going.”

“Why not?” she asked.

“I’ll give you two good reasons,” he said (1), they don’t like me, and 

(2), I don’t like them.” 

His mother replied, “I’ll give you two good reasons why you SHOULD go to church: (1) You’re 59 years old, and (2) you’re the pastor!”
