For years Keith, I and others have suggested various S&D members as speakers and have lamented when our ideas were ignored. Looks like it took a branch chapter to finally get it done! Good thinking MOR for 'introducing' Kenny Howe as a speaker! Too often organizations think they have to go outside their memberships for programs - S&D is certainly one with a wealth of 'homegrown' naturals. Just because one may not have been on the banquet speaker's trail doesn't mean one couldn't produce a great program. Couldn't you see a couple of rocking chairs on stage with Helen Prater and Virginia Bennett reminiscing the old Greene Line days? Or Capt. Charles Henry Stone giving a longer performance than his coveted Saturday meeting speeches? Or Capt. Mike Williams retelling bringing the DQ back to life? Betty Bryant on showboats - she was at an S&D meeting and did an unofficial off campus presentation which was great; and hard to believe, but Ruth Ferris was never asked to speak, what a horrible omission! on and on...
