Mike McIntosh started the club of rigth with a close-enough-to-count recount of last week's quote: "I want to be all I'm capable of becoming" - Mike recited something that sounded very similar to the U.S. Army's motto, "be all that you can be." Thanks, Helen, for the inspirational quotes. Perhaps I can talk to her about blogging/posting the quote every time there is a new one. It would be a great thing to save on the club webpage.
DIMES collected so far: $43! Remember to bring yours every 3rd Thursday of the month.
