OHIO PARTY:   The Ohio northern party was held on Thursday June 26th, 2008 in Columbus Ohio.   We had a great turn out of 28 guests.   We enjoyed a great German meal at Schmidt's in German Village.   Our party room was very nice, decorated with Ohio State flags and cute flower arrangements that were for the ladies and they had pens attached, the men got plain pens.   We had a couple of nice door prizes and everyone received our favorite Chocolate Peanut Butter Buckeyes.   Roses to Bob and Betty Winchester for a great party.   We sent cards and prayers to Dick Bartlett and also Jay Dupler.   A Big Thank You to the Winchesters.

SYMPATHY:   Our sincere sympathy to KGC resident Bob Johnson, 273 Ave. of Queens, whose 94-year young Mother passed away on Saturday June 28, 2008.   Cards may be sent to his KGC address.

JULY 4TH POTLUCK:   The weekly newsletter is printed before the July 4th Potluck was held.   An early thank you to all who worked on the potluck last evening, watch next week for further news.

VIDEO ROOM:   New DVD added this week:   Ultimate Gift.   John Adams Series… this was a 7-part miniseries that was on PBS and was a huge hit.   Donated - Pearl Harbor.
      The video room has been cleaned out once again.   When I took over two years ago we cleaned out about 200 VCR.   This week we cleaned out 300 VCR, we still have approximately 325 left on the shelves that have not been taken out in over two years.   A few were taken out once or twice but two years is long enough to keep these old VCR -   Also while doing the list I have to report that 92 VCR's were missing.   We all know we were missing the four Sex and the City Tapes but this is ridiculous to have this many missing in two years.  Some that were taken were really great movies, some classic.   I have no control over what is missing but once again it is sad that we have this problem here at KGC.   We did move three VCR that were in the adults to the children's shelf.
      The room looks so nice and neat - like when you clean out your refrigerator and then open the door. It makes you want to stand back and say WOW.   Take a peek and see for yourself.
      Your Bookie, Barb Tompkins, was a great help as she worked right along side me doing this task of cleaning out.   Thanks Barb!
      I also have been trying to clean up some DVD and now put Dream Girls and Miss Congeniality 2 back on the shelf.   I played both of them at home and they worked fine.   If anyone has a problem with any DVD please put one of the notes on the DVD and put it on the TABLE not back on the shelf.   That way I can take it home and try to clean it up.   ALSO, if you pickup a DVD and the card is in the jacket but the DVD is missing just call the person before and ask them if they still have it in their DVD Player.   This is not my job to track down missing DVD'S.
      I was told if you have a DVD and it jumped or is not playing right, take it out.   Put a dab of dish detergent on it.   Run hot water over it and make sure all soap is gone...dry it  with clean cloth and then try it in your DVD before you return it to the video room with a note on the table and say it is not working.
      Please make sure all visitors know the rules regarding our Video Room.       Thank you.     Jean Ickes
