Our September meeting brought 23 people in attendance. We made plans for a club silver hunt for November 2nd to be held at Joann and Skipper's land. To raise money for the hunt we are having a club auction for our October meeting. Please bring several items so we can have a successful auction which means more silver and prizes for the hunt.
We did not have a Speaker of the Month this month so the meeting did not last quite as long. The October meeting will be without our President as he will be out on his annual Latvia mission trip. Yours truly will be conducting the meeting so don' embarrass me by not showing up!
We are going to have a small members only beach hunt at Lake Hawkins this Saturday, September 14th for members only. There will be a small entry fee of $3.00 to cover some of the costs. It's a good time for fellowship and to get off the couch and have a good time. Hope to see you there!
Our very own Terry Smith has been asked by the Kilgore Oil Museum to set up a huge display of items he found in ghost towns. The museum was so impressed with his display, they have asked him to keep it up until the Tuesday before Thanksgiving instead of just for the month of September as originally planned. Please go pay a visit to the Oil Museum not only to see his fantastic display but to see the Oil Museum and all of its splendors!
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.
