Our next meeting is September 7 at Colony Cottage Recreation Center, going green at 7 p.m.
Our guest speaker is Terry Cordle. Terry is a Logistics Specialist at Daytona International Speedway. He works all events at the track providing support to the EMS crews and safety crews. He will give us a behind-the-scenes look at the events inside the events - all the support activities that happen while track events are under way.
Club meetings are open to all Villages residents – owners and renters – with appropriate Villages ID.

Dan Gammon scores his second win and moves ahead of Steph Allen, while Renetta Thompson continues her hold on first. These three are looking to head into the Chase Segment. It appears that Watson, Garcia and Touchette need to predict winners in the two races remaining in the Summer Segment.

- Dan Gammon 2 wins, 334 points
- Steph Allen 1 win, 352 points
- Bob Watson 0 wins, 315 points

We are sad to report that club member Garry Greim passed away on Monday, Aug. 22. He fought a courageous battle with cancer for 18 months. Garry was a regular at club meetings, even during his battle.
Garry was the husband of club Recording Secretary Gerry Greim, whom you often see at the back table during meetings. They were married for 47 years. Gerry let us know that he went to his Heavenly Father peacefully without distress or struggle.
A celebration of life for Garry will follow at a later date.
