Jo’s Jottings: Ladies invitational, Orrick Quarterback Club tournaments draw big fields

By Jo Ellen Dale

Jerry Lester writes that he met his brother’s eldest son and family at Blue Springs for lunch last Sunday.  They had driven from New Jersey on their way to Steamboat Springs, Colo., for a family reunion.  His brother and wife flew to Denver and from there drove to Steamboat Springs. Family gatherings can be the happiest times of our lives, although sadness rears its ugly head at times.
I do hope that everyone remembered to vote as I did.  I also attended Richmond Kiwanis Club and as it was the first meeting of the month we had a board meeting.  Several things were discussed such as the upcoming Bill George Golf Tournament. We were urged to enlist players and sponsor events.
The Wednesday Morning Breakfast Club met as usual at Our Place and enjoyed visiting and eating. This group began meeting many years ago when some of  us were walking at the veterans’ building.  Of course the members have changed through the years, but there are six or seven of us still going strong.
Seeing a number of cars in the lot, I stopped at the golf course to see what was in progress.  They were getting ready for a ladies invitational tournament. Because of the tournament, Richmond Rotary met at Hometown Pizza.
Thursday evening I had a strong yen for some onion straws at the Oink and Moo, but when I started to order I found that they have been serving homemade ice cream.  I tried some and I highly recommend it.  In fact, I recommend everything on their menu, most of which I have tried.
