May Meeting!

Our next meeting will be on Saturday, May 21 at the Looking Glass Restaurant at 329 Warfield Blvd. Dutch treat breakfast will be at 9:00 am, with the business meeting to start at 9:30Breakfast is buffet style, so please send Patty Holland an email at holland_patty@yahoo.com  or call her at 850-699-5077 to let her know if you plan on eating ASAP.  We need to let the restaurant know how much food to prepare and that is very difficult if you do not RSVP.  Please help support this Republican-owned business by purchasing breakfast especially since they are giving us a DEAL on the room. Remember, friends and family are always welcome!

NOTE THE CHANGE IN TIME!  We need to be out of the restaurant no later than 10:30, so we are moving up our meeting by half an hour!

Richard H. Binkley

Korean War Veteran & Missionary

 

This month we are honored to have Korean War veteran and missionary Richard H. Binkley as our guest speaker.

Mr. Binkley was recently on an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. for Korean War Veterans.  A native of Montgomery County, Mr. Binkley has worked for the government and upon his retirement embarked on a career as a gunsmith and a missionary.  One of his first mission trips was to war-torn Sudan.   He has been married for 59 years to Jo Anne Mackens and together they had two children, a daughter who lost her life to breast cancer and a son who lost his life to ALS.

We are fortunate to have Mr. Binkley as our guest for our May meeting.  If you think his biography is familiar, it is because he was scheduled to speak to us in December, but fell ill.  We are so happy he’s able to speak to us now!
