MESSAGE FROM EMBLEM CLUB PRESIDENT LINDA BRIDGE

We sure have had a hot summer! Even some surprises with storms, lightning and rain too. Luckily our "Walking Flag" ladies endured the hot of the July 4th Central Point Parade.

The "Walking Flag" won 3rd place and the Club also had a float in the parade. Betsy Ross, Uncle Sam and Lady Liberty were on the float. After the parade, our members took over the two games booths we have each year: Bean Bag Toss and Dime Toss. A good profit was made from the booths for our charities.

President Linda Bridge and husband Irvin will be attending the Supreme National Convention in San Antonio, Texas in September. Emblem Clubs attend from Alaska, Hawaii and all the other US states. The attendees will enjoy the Riverwalk and other entertainment. Lots of meetings and workshops will be put on.

On July 30th, the club attended dinner at the Original Roadhouse Grille in Medford as another fundraiser. The club did the same thing last year and raised money by bringing friends and family to the dinner. The Grille donates back to the club 20% of the final total of the bills on a special day of attendance. The Folding Flag Team did a performance this summer at the Bridge Retirement Suites also.

The next Emblem Club meeting will be Saturday, September 5th @ 11:00 am after 2 months off.

Linda Bridge, President
