Chair Warren Mitchell reports that the trip to Berlin on Tuesday, July 10 (raindate July 17) will leave NAPA Auto Parts at 3:00 p.m. Sgt.-at-Arms Roger Landry will not be bringing his car, so if you want to go by 4-wheels, make your own pool. Plan on a cookout and boce play.

Win a Classic!
V.P. Phil Bonafide (presiding; Pres. Don Nelson is away for a couple of weeks) reports that Meredith Harley-Davidson is "pretty sure" we will be able to have our 2002 blue and ice, fuel-injected Heritage Softtail Classic in September. Confirmation is expected in the near future.

Happy Birthday to Us
V.P. Phil Bonafide says that V.P. Larry Murphy is starting to put together our 75th Anniversary celebration.

Bulletin Sponsors Needed
V.P. Phil Bonafide will have forms next week to sign up bulletin patrons for the coming year.

Guest Speaker Rick Doran, $27, which he donated to the club.

Sgt.@Arms Roger Landry found Roger Ballantyne, Dianne Roberts, and Scott Beane pinless--he missed The Nancies.

A Friend in Need
Charlie St. Clair has established collection points through the Lakeside Sharks and our club for donations towards funeral expenses for 39-year-old cancer victim Tessie Rogers. They are about $2700 short.

Happy Dollar
Jim Fortier came up with a buck for the end of the Fourth of July Celebration. Cudos to him and Immediate Past Lt. Gov. Chet Cilley for promoting our club through this even.

Guest Speaker
V.P. Phil Bonafide introduced former neighbor Rick Doran, Pres. of People First, Consultants in People, Process, and Planning. After 33 years with Allstate Insurance, the last 12 as in-house corporate consultant, he started People First seven years ago. He maintains that the key to a strong business is solid, lasting relationships. With this as its foundation, People First helps organizations become stronger by demonstrating how a team-driven, customer-focused environment, working hand-in-hand with a strong leadership, can enhance employee commitment and customer satisfaction. People First guides your employees and/or executives through result-oriented, tailor made programs presented in half- to multiple-day training sessions. Rick Doran presented a whole seminar into a half-hour for the club. He focused on the need to change our perceptions by avoiding wrong premises or working with incomplete information. 14 Do's and Don't's were presented to help build effective relationships. People First, who will be in the area in November, may be contacted at 317-574-0272.

Guest speaker Doran obviously worked miracles with our own V.P. Phil Bonafide.

Marking Our Turf
Warren Mitchell advises that he has placed our new locations signs on the club boards at city entrances. He observes that the Rte. 106 and Rte. 3N locations could use a bit of landscaping and wonders if the club might do something about it.

Final Scenes from the Boardwalk
Here's the last batch of the Best of Steve Loughlin. You will note an abudance of shots of V.P. Phil Bonafide. This could be that he is just so darned photogenic...or maybe because he was just there all the time.

Chair Phil Bonafide keeps his lemonade holstered for quick draws on the straw.

"Where can I get a tattoo like that?", Warren Mitchell tactfully asks.
