MESSAGE BOARD



We had 22 members at our May 2018 meeting.  Since Bobby Pierce was not at the May meeting, he was presented a certificate and a silver round for his volunteer work in helping at our booth at the TAMDC convention in Temple, Texas.  Thanks for all of your help, Bobby!.  


We did not have a Speaker of the Month but Keith Wills talked about the upcoming event for the handicapped kids put on in Kerrville, Texas this June 20 and 21st.  He is looking for any and all volunteers he can get as well as donations of foreign coins to use in the hunt for the kids.  All donations and volunteering I know will be much appreciated and needed.  


Also, September 1st, Joann and Skipper Dunn are putting on a hunt for wounded warriors.  They are asking for volunteers with extra detectors to use with the wounded warriors.  This is for a great cause for our veterans that have given so much for their country and our freedom.  Please see or talk to Joann about what you can do.  

MONTHLY FUN FACT...

Butterflies taste with their feet.

WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?...

CURFEW
The word "curfew" comes from the French phrase "couvre-feu", which means "cover the fire". It was used to describe the time of blowing out all lamps and candles. It was later adopted into Middle English as “curfeu" which later became the modern "curfew". In the early American colonies homes had no real fireplaces so a fire was built in the center of the room. In order to make sure a fire did not get out of control during the night it was required that, by an agreed upon time, all fires would be covered with a clay pot called-a “curfew".
