OCTOBER 21, 2013
Posted on Stout Standards
"Last night the winners were drawn in the Ken MacIntyre
benefit, and I want to thank everyone who participated and
whether or not you won a prize, you were ALL winners!
The MacIntyre family is most grateful. Thanks to Butch,
Anita and Jeff at American Digger magazine for their hard
work as well. Ultimately we raised $7036.00, enough to
pay for Ken's chemo treatments through January. Thank
you all so much. You are the best!" Dick Stout

Our October meeting was held on October 10th, with 31
members and guest in attendance. The meeting was
opened with only two members of the Board of Directors
and Linda Bennett, Hunt Master in attendance.
The Team from Paranormal Crossroads Investigations
(PCI) was introduced. Kris Richardson, Director / CEO
led the team telling the membership how they got into this
interesting field. They related happenings, investigations
and results of those investigations. Our membership was
spellbound!! Needless to say there were many questions
at the end of their presentation. The PCI meets monthly at
the Fort Lauderdale Fire Museum with a walk through and
talk with the local ghost. There is a cost for this walk
through; proceeds are divided with the PCI and the Fire
Museum. In addition they do a presentation on occasion
at the Lake Worth Playhouse. Their investigative service
is free and you can reach them on their website at
Our meeting proceeded after the presentation. The
Treasurer reported $1092 plus in the treasury, missed the
exact amount as I was trying to do two things at once!
Linda Bennett, Hunt Master spoke to the membership
of the importance of volunteering to serve on the Board of
Directors. She asked for ideas for future programs that
anyone in the membership would like. She further asked
for volunteers for the Nominating Committee. John
Lobota volunteered to Chair the Nominating Committee
for our election in November of officers. If you would
like to be part of the team and volunteer for an office or
committee, please contact John Lobota at Tel No. 561433-3138.
