Secret Greeter: Carol Kelley caught many, including (but not limited to) Al McNeilly, Marianne Masters, Broo Temple, and Bill Packard. Badges: Marcy Wass didn't have her badge on. 50/50: Tom Luttrell didn't get the Joker, therefore he didn't win the $5 pot.


Marica Whitten was happy for Greg Hamlin and Barbara Hanson. Bobbie Knapp was hap for a full staff, happy to be back, and sad she was talking when Marcia Whitten was talking. Jim Heavey reminded everyone his last name is not “Harvey,” but he noted his name is descended from Harvey, and that it means “battle-worthy.” He was also happy to be participating in a polar plunge on 2/9. Jackie Harjula was happy for our guests, happy for Al McNeilly, happy for Bill Packard and Broo Temple's membership, and happy for an open mic night at church. Gordon Page was happy for a trip to NC, happy for Bill Packard as the speaker, and happy for Broo Temple. Sandy Millar was happy for the Biz After Hours. Sumner Kinney was happy for the Patriots. Al McNeilly was happy to be back, and happy to stay updated thanks to club bulletin editor Bill Batty, Jr. Katie Tarbox was happy for the Biz After Hours, happy for Jane Dagley and Camden National Bank, and happy her shop was relocating to N. Mn. St. near Wass's Hot Dogs.

Bill Packard is an author and entrepreneur. His latest business, a consulting/coaching firm to help small business. His ideal client is someone who has started a small business, grown it, and grown it to the point that the business runs them, instead of them running the business. He then comes along and helps out.

From your Spiritual Aims Committee:

“The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and an actualizer... He can visualize something, and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen.”
~Robert L. Schwartz
