Greetings Compatriots,

Itís the start of the summer and our chapter activities will be dark for the next couple of months. At the April meeting I was surprised and pleased to hear Renee and Paul Weddell announce plans for the Potluck BBQ. Considering Paulís physical limitations of late, I thought that the summer BBQís would be a thing of the past. Like some of us, I didnít go to the BBQís for a number of years. Then I decided to attend several years ago and I had a really great time, and now, I wouldnít miss one ever again. First of all, the dress is very casual. The weather is great and the company is outstanding. Paul and Renee have a wonderful home in Yorba Linda on a private street where diagonal street parking is the norm. So, there is plenty of parking. Their backyard is groomed like a golf course with a rock waterfall as the center piece. Iím only guessing, but the yard has to be at least 1/3 of an acre. So thereís plenty of space for tables, chairs and guests. The food is, of course, hamburgers and hot dogs, with plenty of other delicious dishes brought by the rest of us for the potluck. The cost is $5 per family along with a potluck dish coordinated with Renee. So, this is a great time and opportunity to bring your family and mingle casually with your fellow compatriots and their families. You wonít regret it and possibly wonder why you didnít attend before now. Iím looking forward to seeing everyone there.

In Compatriotism,
Leon Smith, Vice-President
