Program for October 30, reported by David Maxwell - Click here for PRINT VERSION

Many of the members wore costumes today. There were more witches than usual and John Snively was his usual colourful self. President Jack added to the occasion with his Halloween
joke, “Why does an angry witch not ride her broomstick? Because she is afraid of flying off the handle.” Ron Gaudet recited the grace and Tom Lidkea played for O Canada.The food was a bit late today so we all had a sense of what it was like to go hungry…for at least 15 minutes. Jack started the meeting while we waited for our meal.
