President Hafsa Burt called us to order welcoming and followed by Kern Lewi leading us in the Pledge of Allegiance.

THOUGHT(s) FOR THE DAY – Bruce Johnson from Mark Twain:  Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear; not absence of fear.  Al West from Thomas A. Kida: “Don’t Always Believe What You Think” from his book  Don't Believe Everything You Think: The 6 Basic Mistakes We Make in Thinking, but the Thought got to Al through a bumper sticker!
