CURRENT INFORMATION

VOLUNTEERS:  Drive By Goodie Bag Pick Up Wednesday July 1st, 11am-12pm.

JOKE OF THE MONTH:

CRUISIN’

An elderly couple was on a cruise and it was stormy. They were standing on the back of the boat watching the moon when a wave came up and washed the old woman overboard. They searched for days and couldn’t find her, so the captain sent the old man back to shore with the promise that he would notify him as soon as they found something.

Three weeks went by and finally, the old man got a fax from the boat. It read: “Sir, sorry to inform you, we found your wife dead at the bottom of the ocean. We hauled her up to the deck and attached to her butt was an oyster and it had a pearl worth $50,000 …..please advise”

The old man faxed back: “Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap”
