The announcements at last week’s meeting were about our golf tourney coming up on April 22nd, our community service project (helping a Rebuilding Alexandria project on April 27th), and our student recognition student being Morin Tinubu from Episcopal HS who is going to Williams College next year. Roger Grooms also congratulated Brooke Curran on completing her 123rd marathon after having successfully overcome serious medical conditions (YEA BROOKE!!). Our speaker was James “States” Manslip who portrayed President George Washington in full Revolutionary uniform and looking much like we’d expect George Washington to look. ‘States’ had traveled across the US visiting towns and locals named after the President and gave us many of GW’s observations and comments. It was a most interesting presentation about our Founding Father who did so much to help establish us as a viable and continuing republic which is a beacon of liberty esteemed around the world.
