KINGSFORD – “Oh What a Beautiful Morning” was a grand way to start the day when the Golden K Club gathered for their regular Monday meeting on June 9. The coffee was perking as chairman Paul Jacobs started the meeting with the pledge to the American Flag and “God Bless America.”

Members were reminded that the next GK place of meeting will be at the Masonic Temple, across the parking lot from the Presbyterian Church due to Vacation Bible School starting at the Church on June 16.

Happy Birthday was sung for Claudia Rigoni.

Happy Anniversary was sung for two happily married GK couples: Donnell and Marian Swanson and Ken and Carol Schultz.

It’s always nice to have Kristin Sommerfeld, RSVP director, bring a youthful smile to our meetings. The Welcome Song was sung for Kristin and the two program guests Patricia Staller and Jonathan Ringel of the Dickinson Community Theatre.

Bob Tachik was the lucky 50/50 winner.

Bob Rigoni announced that the GK member’s picnic will be at Cowboy Lake on Monday, July 7 starting at 10:30 a.m. It is a catered picnic.

Don Pedo read the Happy Dollars. Jim Verrette was happy to wish the Swanson’s Happy Anniversary and Donnell was happy to make it to 58th anniversary. Dick Walsh is happy for good health.

Orice and Harlan were happy to have their granddaughter Janay Walters selected a MVP for the Kingsford Girls High School softball team.

Paul Ward offered the prayer and Thought for the Day: “I realized somebody didn’t do something and I was somebody.”

The chairman asked for prayers for several GKrs who are unable to attend meetings at this time.

The Golden Throats are invited to sing at Freeman’s Nursing Home Picnic on Wednesday, June 18 at noontime.

Paul Ward introduced the program participants Jonathan Ringel and Patricia Staller. Patricia is the director of “Annie Get Your Gun” being presented by the local Dickinson Community Theatre.

Patricia and Jonathan acted out some of the humorous parts of the play along with a little singing. Patricia was a good stand in for Abby Miller, local Channel 6 TV reporter, who was stranded at an Airport somewhere. Multi Tasking is something many of the theatre performers do.
