President Kent Cartwright was away again today. I think he is getting short timer’s syndrome

Howard Richards led us in God Bless America

Four Way Test:  Joe Blachy

Invocation:  BJ Shawn


By Priscilla Leonard

Forget each kindness that you do,

As soon as you have done it.

Forget the praise that falls to you,

The moment you have won it.

Forget the slander that you hear

Before you can repeat it.

Forget each slight, each spite, each sheer,

Wherever you may meet it.


Remember every kindness done

To you, whate’er its measure.

Remember praise by others won

And pass it on with pleasure.

Remember every promise made

And keep it to the letter.

Remember those who lend you aid

And be a grateful debtor.


Remember all the happiness

That comes your way in living.

Forget each worry and distress,

Be hopeful and forgiving.

Remember good, remember truth

Remember Heaven’s above you,

And you will find, through age and youth,

True joys and hearts to love you.

Our own Dibby Smith was the program today. She gave us an overview of the Great Lakes Chamber Orchestra. This is just another example of the great cultural events available in Petoskey. She introduced Tony Patterson who is also friends with Howard Richards played a duet that was simply amazing. Tony then played another piece he composed for a ballet that was almost as good
