There were seventeen members and one visitor, Joe Brown in attendance for our February meeting. Your webmaster has known Joe Brown since the mid 80's and we hadn't seen each other in about 32 years. It was great to see an old friend.
Our Speaker of the Month was Gary Pinkerton who has appeared on the show, Beyond Oak Island recently which was based on the story of lost treasure in Hendricks Lake. He had a lot of information on the legend of lost gold placed in the lake. It was a very interesting and entertaining presentation and much appreciated by our club.
Gary has been an author of several books which can be ordered from his website, www.trammelstrace.org.
MONTHLY FUN FACT...
WHERE DID THAT COME FROM?...
BARRELS OF OIL
When the first oil wells were drilled, they had made no provision for storing the liquid so they used water barrels. That is why, to this day, we speak of barrels of oil rather than gallons.
