“It is through the truthful exercising of the best of human qualities---respect for others, honesty about ourselves, faith in our ideals,---that we come to life in God’s eyes.  It is how our soul, as a nation, and as individuals is revealed.”     Bruce Springsteen, New York Times, 2004

September 7 – GENERAL MEMBERSHIP MEETING  to begin the fiscal year.  Everyone come and use the opportunity to express your opinion.  We will be the speakers.  Come and talk about the fellowship and what would make your participation be more enjoyable.  We can make changes if we know what you want.  If we share doing things, then no one has to feel overwhelmed.  Please come and enjoy some refreshments, ask questions and offer any ideas you may have.  There are some issues that may require a vote.  There are a couple of on-going tasks that need a volunteer. 


September 14 – THE MANZANAR FISHING CLUB  Japanese American fishermen living in the World War II Manzanar internment camp sought and found moments of freedom by escaping to fish in the Eastern Sierra of California.  Lorna McClellan will share parts of a DVD which traces this story of the human spirit.
