We wrapped up our county 76 retreat this morning and then headed back to the office to have our final County 76 quarterly meeting of the year.We started it off with a surprise baby shower for Julie and I do believe she truly was surprised.We got her the bassinet they wanted for the baby from the whole group, and then many others brought a myriad of baby gifts.A cake and punch rounded out the party which we had with lunch.julie baby shower.nov5 (2)

We cleaned up, loaded cars and everyone was on their way.I had a few more events to go.First, some good friends of mine were showcasing the re-release of the original Memphis beer–Goldcrest.The debut was at Vino’s and they had a great turn out and the beer was really good.goldcrest beer lr debut (1)

Then I met friends at the opening of an event at the MacArthur Museum of Military History.mcarthur museum (2)

mcarthur museum (6) By the wars end more than $30 billion had been raised and one in three Americans supported the war efforts.I am not sure how long these will be on display, but they are worth the trip to view.I haven’t been to the museum in years, and it is full of history and quite nice.

Afterwards we had a great dinner with folks from three other states.They are on an Arkansas journey starting in LR and heading northward.
Tomorrow is advanced MG training on bulbs in Hot Springs.
