SPY Meeting This Thursday!

Please be advised that the date for the next meeting of the Sunfield Area Sponsors of Programs for Youth (the SPY’s) has been changed. We normally would be meeting on Tuesday, November 8th, but due to that being election day and many having conflicts, the meeting has been moved to Thursday, November 10th. We will be meeting at the Best Tax Service building starting at 6:30 PM.

Nominations Please

At the SPY’s Annual Meeting of the Membership that will be coming up in January, the election of officers for 2023 will be held. Any SPY member that is interested in serving as an officer in the organization, or would like to nominate someone you think might be interested, please contact either Jeff Gibbs at 517-930-6989, or Renee Strimback at 269-967-5787. Thank you.

• That’s Puny Department: 100 years ago everyone owned a horse and only the rich had cars. Today, everyone has a car and only the rich have horses. Oh, how the stables have turned.

• Did You Know Section: Colonel Harland Sanders got fired from dozens of jobs, including being a lawyer; a steam engine stoker; insurance salesman, filling stations operator, and others. He found himself broke at the age of 65, and decided to start KFC. The rest is, as they say, history.
