Greg Berwick of Beach Tuyn Funeral Home gave his classification talk today. He shared with the club his experiences in this profession, how he got involved and what life in this business is all about. While our view of a family in this business may somewhat be tainted by HBO's six feet under series, Greg's talk focused on what truly is the essence of being part of such a service oriented industry and its impact on the individuals and families that at some point in their life interact with Greg and his team.
Announcements and other Business:
  • Speaker schedule is filling up and we have some spots in September still so please keep the speakers coming.
  • Wings Flight of Hope is doing their annual fund raiser on August 1. Please attend if you can. Gary has two tickets available if anybody would like use them.
  • Ed's team has done a great job on Glen Park clean up. We need to find some donations (either through the town or others) for some materials for filling parts of areas where the gravel has deteriorated. There is also the issue of getting some color into rotary park as it more green now then colorful. Vicky provided some thoughts on that.
