Tommy Windsor Ring 197
NO. 197, MARIETTA, OHIO – The Tommy Windsor Ring
Meets 2nd Thu., 7:00 pm Lafayette Hotel – Marietta, OH
CHESTER W. GAULT, Secretary –

The June meeting of Ring 197 was the annual picnic and swim party held at the home of Chester and Sandy Gault. The prospect of a rainy day magically vanished before the start of the picnic and a perfect picnic day appeared.
Having several issues that needed addressed, President Dale Wheeler opened a short business meeting. Details of our Annual Hocus Pocus Show were firmed up. This year, for the first time, we are adopting a children’s charity, Secret Santa, and will be donating a large part of the proceeds to them.
Since our usual meeting site, The Lafayette Hotel, will be unavailable to us for our July meeting, it was decided to hold that meeting 80 miles away in Fairmont, West Virginia. Fairmont is the hometown of one of our loyal members, Chad Davis. Chad has been unable to attend meetings in Marietta for the past several months due to health issues, so we decided to ‘take the show on the road’ and bring the meeting to Chad. We are all looking forward to seeing Chad again.
With the business portion of the day over, the 19 members and guests settled in for some great food. With burgers and dogs on the grill and the tables full of everyone’s specialties, a fantastic meal was had.
Following the meal, everyone was treated to entertainment by Dale Wheeler. Dale played the guitar and sang with even the members singing along occasionally. The highlight was an original song that Dale had written about our magic club. Great fun.
Since the picnic was held on the birthday of the widow of member Larry Leach, everyone sang ‘Happy Birthday’ to Linda with Dale’s guitar accompaniment.
It was a perfect day. In case you didn’t notice, there was not a magic trick performed. Everyone left their favorite hobby/profession at home and just enjoyed each others company. Next month we’ll be meeting out of town, but starting again in August, we’ll be back in Marietta at the Lafayette Hotel. Stop and see us. I guarantee there will be lots of magic at that meeting.

C.W. Gault, Secretary
