Phil Davidson is happy the community services budget is ready: There will be a budget meeting Wednesday night March 4th at Treasurer Phils house, 13 Hillcrest Street, Hallowell
Our speaker today was introduced by Betsy Phol. The all time Kiwanis blunder made by Bob West on the televised auction when he tried to get bids on a one nite stay at a local hotel was instead called a “one nite stand”, may be in jeopardy. In Besty’s introducing of Lee Goldberg, instead of noting he is active in IRIS network, a Portland Non-Profit, she told us Lee is very active in the ISIS network.
Goldberg talked about his career, which began in Ohio and finally brought him home to Portland where he attended Deering High School. He said while watching Bruce Glasier on Channel 6 one day he realized that’s what he wanted to do in his life. It was ironic he ended up working with Glasier at WCSH.
He said the focus has changed due to the internet from national and regional sports stories which people now get instantly to local coverage of primarily high school events.
50/50 winner: Bob West
Brunch Certificate: Leo Murphy
