K-Mart, where we bought many of my kids’ clothes 50 years ago, closed its nearby store. Two weeks ago I went to Sear’s in Brea to buy a part for our dishwasher, and it was gone. I have shopped at Sear’s all my life. So did my parents, and their parents.
At Grampaw Pettibone Squadron, we used to have 120-150 members come to our lunch programs. Now, we have 50. We need twice as many to attract program speakers we want. We are honoring more outstanding Active Duty sailors now than ever before. It takes attendance to do this. We are probably being fed better by the cooks at the Elks Club than we were at any of the Navy and Marine Corps Officers Clubs before them .
Again: Any Suggestions?
