Gathering Reminder

Greetings,

We welcome a new member to our group this week. John discovered us last Tuesday! It was great to meet him and look forward to having John with us in the weeks and years to come. Welcome John!

Last week was another one that wasn't so great. Jamal Klashoggi, Pat Robertson, and of course trump were in the news and in our thoughts. We must be focused on the upcoming election. Vote, get your friends and neighbors to vote and make a change.

Hello Everyone,

We have two new members to welcome to our group. Izzy and Anne joined us at our Second Sunday gathering at La Paz. We look forward to having them with us in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Izzy and Anne!

Our second Second Sunday gathering was a great success. La Paz welcomed us with super service and tasty food. We might need to arrange a larger area for our next Second Sunday. It can be done. Our thanks go out to Ron and Jacob for putting this monthly gathering together.

There was discussion about the Mueller investigation around the table Sunday. Let's talk about it again Tuesday. It will be very interesting when the final investigation results become public.

Our friend Bill Porter has officially retired! We will raise our glasses to toast Bill Tuesday. Retirement is a wonderful occupation, you'll love it Bill.

Greetings,

"That Was The Week That Was", a BBC television production in the 1970's that gave us insight into what was happening at the time in a humorous way, a bit like SNL only more polished. Can we chuckle about what is happening to our country now? We can vote, and get our friends and neighbors to vote. It's the only way we have left to change the path on which our country is headed.

Hello Again,

As is always the case since trump took office, this has been a very busy week with the Kavanaugh testimony and the upcoming FBI investigation. We all have thoughts about this that we can share.

The First Annual Bill Pressley Memorial Pool is growing. Who is it that wrote the op-ed article in the N.Y. Times about the goings on at the trump White House? Pick a name, any name and donate a buck or two. Someone has to reap the benefits.

There will be a candidate forum with all three candidates running for U.S. Congress for District 4. Brandon Brown, Democrat, William Timmans, Republican, and Guy Furay, American Party will meet with us. The forum will be at the main library, 151 S. Church Street, Spartanburg beginning at 7:00 PM on Thursday October 11th. It will be a good opportunity to meet our candidates.

Hello Everyone,

We have two new members to welcome this week! Audrey and Darrin join us last Tuesday. It was great to get to know them and we all hope they join us again in the weeks and years to come. Welcome Audrey and Darrin!

ANNOUNCING THE 1st ANNUAL BILL P. MEMORIAL POOL! Name the author of the N.Y. Times op-ed article about the trump administration and date of release of name. There will be a donation of one dollar, or more, for each name you pick. The Price Is Right rules apply, and of course the 50/50 rule also. We can discuss this in more detail Tuesday. This is a good way to add to the TANC so that we can make a substantial donation this year. And it's also fun and a fine way to remember our friend Bill.

Hi Everyone,

Our first gathering for Second Sunday at La Paz Mexican Restaurant in Boiling Springs was a great success! Good food, super margaritas and wonderful conversation. Thank you Ron and Jacob for making this happen. So it's a done deal, every second Sunday of each month at La Paz, 3:00 PM. Yes we are growing Spartanburg DL!

Bob Woodward, author of "Fear", will be a guest on The Rachel Maddow Show Tuesday Sept. 11th. The TV will be on in our corner and we'll be watching. At times we all wish for a peaceful moment, a dull moment even. Those moments are few and far between lately.

Correction to the reminder

Hello Everyone,

While the GOP administration keeps tweeting, spending, raising tariffs, making health care more expensive, and just raising general havoc, there is also one more situation about which we need to be concerned. We are very close to facing a Constitutional Convention to rewrite and change our constitution. As of last count, only 6 more states are needed to make this happen. We should make this a topic of discussion Tuesday. Do a bit of research, and bring your thoughts to the table Tuesday.

Our first Second Sunday gathering happens September 9th, 3:00 PM at La Paz Mexican Restaurant, 403 Bellport Drive, Boiling Springs, SC. Gather with us for a Sunday dinner or late lunch event. Jacob and Ron have done a great job to make this happen. Come join us and bring a friend.
