Roost #44 Poop
· From the Prez – The election for new Roost officers and the Board was held at the last Roost meeting on January 11th. The results are:
o President - Eric Waterman
o Vice President - Donna Chaplinski
o Board Member - Patricia Neal
o Treasurer - Sandy Taras
o Recording Secretary - Martha Worthington
o Corresponding Secretary - Ken Taras
o Sergeant at Arms - Igor Gawryluk
Congratulations to all. Members should think about serving in these positions when many of these will be open next year. Thanks again to Dennis and Joanne Faber and Rob Carpenter for serving on the Nominating Committee and kudos to Rob for conducting the election.
I have got out of the habit of reminding the members that we collect plastic grocery bags at every Roost meeting. These bags are used by Diakonia (Food Bank & Homeless Shelter) to distribute food contributions to the needy. My white Ford pickup is parked in front of the OC 360 at every Roost meeting. Simply put your plastic bags in the bed of the truck. This is a great way to recycle plastic bags.

· A fellow in a bar notices a woman, always alone, come in on a fairly regular basis. After the second week, he made his move.
"No thank you" she said politely. "This may sound rather odd in this day and age, but I'm keeping myself pure until I meet the man I love."
"That must be rather difficult" the man replied.
"Oh, I don't mind too much" she said. "But, it has my husband pretty upset."
