President…Ken Schieck

Some important dates in June: June 6, 1944 (D-Day invasion of France (our member George DePold was a participant); June 12, 1924 (birthday of 41st president, George H.W. Bush); June 14 (flag day); June 18 (Father’s Day); June 21 (beginning of summer); June 25, 1876 (defeat of Gen. Custer at the Little Big Horn, Montana); June 25, 1950 (America’s entry into the Korean War).

Last month, someone misplaced a set of keys in Marilyn Clough’s egg carton basket. If they might be yours, please contact Marilyn at 408/377-6882.

Last week, I had lunch with Wendy Sinclair, president of the South San Francisco AARP chapter; she was impressed with our newsletter and layout of our general meeting agenda. I have invited her to attend our general meeting on June 20. Also, the AARP Bay Area regional HQ office is moving from San Francisco to San Jose, and I hope to have the regional administrator attend one of our meetings as well.

I will be participating in a state chapter call on June 21; if you have any ideas or concerns that you want to share with other chapters please let me know.

As I mentioned in my first letter in January or February, I am looking for someone who would like to write a history of this chapter; it would be printed in the neighborhood newspapers like the Campbell Express and the Campbell Reporter.

We hope to see our legislative chair Daniel Nnorth in July; he is still going through rehabilitation for his rotator cuff injury.
