Shoeboxes for Shelters
Hopefully everyone has been collecting back to school
supplies and saving all those little shampoos from vacation. Also need any
shoeboxes & wrapping paper.
Robin called the company and the
date has been set for Sunday, September 15 at approximately 10am. The name
of the company is Kayate Connection and their address is 2370 Moss Landing
(Highway 1). Phone number 831-724-5692. The plan for the day is to
rent 2-person kayates and picnic for lunch at the nearby beach in Moss Landing.
The cost is $40 for 4 hours for two people. (If you do the math, that
means $20 per person for 4 hours.) Robin would like an RSVP by September
1 (before this newsletter is even online!) as the club needs to put up a 50%
(Editor's note: What is a kayate?)
Fall Ladies Trip
At the last meeting a decision was made to move the October ladies trip to the
second week of Oct. as many were not be able to make it on the original weekend.
The following places are being researched: Yosemite, Pajaro Dunes, Cambria Pines
Lodge, and Tahoe (because it is usually the cheapest). Because it has not been
clear how many people are interested in going it is hard to quote per person
prices at this point. Please email Vicki (firstname.lastname@example.org)
ASAP and state your first, second and third choices so plans can move forward.
If you will not go if a certain destination is chosen please mention it.
Six families enjoyed another pleasant day at Capitola for the Sandcastle
Contest and Beach Breakfast. Mr. Johnson's "Hogwarts" ended up taking 2nd
place in the large group competition. (Even though he ended up having
only 2 in his group plus some shoveling by Walt and water hauling by
Keith) Janis was nominated to bring her great fruit kebabs every year!!...............Kathy

Educator Joke (from Randi)
In an effort to add diversity to the workforce,
five cannibals get hired by a large school
district. During the welcoming ceremony the
superintendent says, "You're all part of our
team now. You can earn good money here, and
you can go to the cafeteria for something
to eat. So please don't trouble any of the
other employees". The cannibals promised.
Four weeks later the superintendent returns
and says, "You're all working very hard, and
I'm very satisfied with all of you. However,
one of our janitors has disappeared. Do
any of you know what happened to him?"
The cannibals all shake their heads no.
After the boss left, the leader of the cannibals
says to the others, "Which of you idiots ate
A hand raises hesitantly, to which the leader
of the cannibals replies, "You FOOL! For four
weeks we've been eating Assistant Superintendents,
Curriculum Directors, Team Leaders, Supervisors
and Coordinators and no one noticed anything,
and YOU had to go and eat the janitor!
