President’s Message: The strength of our Club lies in its members. We have two examples over the past two weeks when at “the last” minute our guest speakers were unable to attend. Graham Ford presented the History of the Erie Canal and John Core on the evolution of dairy farming in Ontario and Canada using his family’s three generations in the dairy farming business. Many more lend their experience behind the scenes maintain our website, preparing the monthly bulletin, recruiting speakers and operating the technical infrastructure to name only a few. Many of you have contacted me offering to become involved with the “running” of the Club. Offers of such support are timely. Six new Board members who serve a two year term for example beginning on September 1 are needed. The Program Committee is currently recruiting Monthly Program Chairs for September-August, 2021-22. For more information about the role of a Board Member, please contact Past President, Jim Howse. I look forward to hearing from you. Jim Sanders From the Board: At the March Board meeting, Membership Secretary Rob Lindsay, reported to the Board that the membership profile at that time was: Active Members 271 Associate Members 26 Pending 0 Life Members 3 Revving Up with the Rev: "What keeps you young?" she asked. The 'she' was a twenty-something receptionist at LifeLabs where I had tests taken. During conversation I told her that I had booked my Covid vaccination shot as the Health Unit opened up the availability to people over 80. She said, "You're over 80? What keeps you young? What's the secret?" I could have said more but there wasn't time. My only reply was, "Keep smilin'!" READ MORE
