Jobs Available!

We need a secretary! Edith has announced her intention to “really” retire this year.

I know everybody is now trying to look invisible or at least smaller. That’s what happens when officer positions become available, but this is a very important job and we’re really hoping somebody will “step up” and agree to be nominated. I’m sure Edith will help with the transition… some computer skills would certainly be helpful, but what’s more important is a desire to keep the Association alive and healthy! If you are even the tiniest bit interested, feel free to give me a call or email to discuss!

If you know someone who’d be good, bribe or threaten them! And as an added incentive to attend the reunion, consider that you could get elected if you’re not there to decline! Conversely, if you’d like to be elected but can’t make the reunion, please let a board member or officer know and we’ll get you nominated.

We also will have an opening on the Board so you have two chances to help out your Association. Whaddya say?

You Didn’t Ask…

I’ve been working on this year’s reunion invitation… and looking at last year’s noticed that I “threatened” to tell a town clock story. I don’t recall anybody asking, but I can’t resist.

It seems that during the early 1960’s there were two Blue Devils who frequently ushered at the United Church. I said names would be withheld, but one’s initials were CD and the other’s were WB.

I’ll bet you didn’t know this: the church bell (operational at the time) sounds vaguely similiar to the town clock’s bell.

Said ushers discovered that a gentle tug on the rope in vestry would generate two well-timed “bongs” immediately after the town clock had chimed eleven. We never did know if anybody wondered why it occasionally was “thirteen o’clock” on Sunday morning in Chester.
