The Delaware County Chapter of the Girard College meeting Feb. 1, 2013 was a great success. 16 people were in attendance. The newcomers were Wes Dunning, Lew Rinko and Len Casterline.
We started with Turkey noodle soup and the entrée was Pot Roast, salad, and ending with Pie. The usual beverages were served.
Every meeting Bob Furphy complains that he wants to know when he is going to get Lobster. To his surprise he and Bill Cubit were both presented with a Lobster.
The Icing on the cake was a tape taken at the Florida Chapters Millennium Cruise in 1998. With all the members getting onstage and under the direction of Bob “Gleason” Furphy we sang our Alma Mater Song, Hail Girard. We were a fantastic success.
Lew Rinko wrote a book that is a must for all. Everything he wrote about happened to every one of us. If you want a copy call Tom Yocom it is a worthy cause.
Len Casterline made a wrong turn and ended up in Smokeys driveway. To his surprise it was the day of our meeting.
Gene Ruggere showed us photos of the damage done to his home at the shore due to Hurricane Sandy. We hope he will be well compensated.
Breeze Breathwaite could not make the meeting because someone wants to buy his house….and demolish it. We can all depend on his decision.
Tom DiFillippo did not have much to say, maybe he has morning sickness and we should buy him some Lidia Pinkham pills.
McKendrick and Melencheck were at least 10’ away from me and my hearing range is only6’. Sorry I missed your conversations.
Dillard Jordan was busy making everyone comfortable. Thanks for your help.
I(Smokey) had the honor of drinking a Manhattan with Stan Glowacki.
We still can’t get over the accomplishments of Erv Antoni. I am happy to be his friend.
Last but not least my classmates that are dear to my heart, Ciervo, McGovern and Breathweighte. I love and respect the man with a passion.
In conclusion it is a privilege to be a part of this rare organization. And I will do my best to continue.
And with the help of Tom Yocom who is also one who makes this all possible and my Son Leonard who does all the work, and I get all the credit.
I’m a lucky Man
