Any Interest?

· Jeff Gibbs is exploring starting up a SPY’s Bowling Tournament fundraiser if there is enough interest. Give Jeff a call at 517-930-6989 and let him know if you would be interested in participating.

· For 36 years the SPY’s have held a Euchre Tournament in March. Many years ago it was dubbed “The Showdown On Main Street”. By due to COVID we had to cancel the tournaments in 2020 and 2021. We are looking to start it up again in 2022, if there is enough interest. What do you think? If you would be interested in playing just reply to this email and we will see if we can pull one off this year. Let us hear from you on this as well as the Bowling Tournament.

Please note that these events are open to ANYONE interested in participating and not just SPY members.

Parting Comments

• Deep Thought of the Week: To remember who you are, you need to forget what they told you to be.

• Notable Quote: "Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value.”---Albert Einstein

• That’s Puny Department: Three guys are in a boat with four cigarettes but no lighter or matches or anything to light them with. What do they do? (Look for the answer below).

· Did You Know Section: In the 1650s Anthony Johnson, an African man, won a court case that let him keep another African, John Casor, as his slave instead of ending his indentured servitude. This meant that the first legally recognized owner of a permanent slave in America was an African man.
