News You should learn something new every day.
Unfortunately, many of us are at that age where what we learn today, we forget tomorrow.

THANK YOU:   A BIG thank you to Sandy McIntyre, who each week faithfully puts the Newsletter on the KGC web site.   I found out this past week how many of the "snowbirds", who are north for the summer, read our paper.   We had many calls and e-mails from people who are away from the Club, after they read "Seat Belts and Air Bags."   The interest in KGC remains, whether we are "in residence" or away.   So, Sandy, on behalf of all of us, who are up north, we want you to know that we appreciate your work.      --SJB
