This week’s meeting was our formal dedication of The Bridge Home Project Playground which was held at the Bridge Home. It was well attended by our members, guests, Bridge Home staff and children. We had great weather for the day just a little too hot but we did survive. It was nice to see the smiling faces on the children while they were playing and eating the pizza. Also, as a reminder this was a Million Dollar Meal and we will be collecting the funds at this week’s meeting.
VISITORS AND GUESTS: Charlie Barrett, Frank Faria and Joy Freitas

One More Thing
One day a father on his way home suddenly remembers that it’s his daughter’s birthday. He pulls over to a Toy Shop and asks the salesperson. ‘How much for one of those Barbie’s in the display window?’
The salesperson answers, ‘Which one do you mean, Sir? We have: Work Out Barbie for $19.95, Shopping Barbie for $19.95, Beach Barbie for $19.95, Disco Barbie for $19.95 Ballerina Barbie for $19.95, Astronaut Barbie for $19.95, Skater Barbie for $19.95 and Divorced Barbie for $265.95.’
The amazed father asks: “It’s what?! Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others are only $19.95?’
The annoyed salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs, and answers: ‘Sir…, Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken’s Car, Ken’s House, Ken’s Boat, Ken’s Furniture, Ken’s Computer, and one of Ken’s Friends.’
