With great sadness, we report the passing today of one of our founding

Street, Indianapolis, IN 46224 with visitation one hour prior to the
service. Burial will be in The Mound Cemetery, Pine Village, Indiana
Our sympathies also go out to the Hardacre family on the loss of Jerry’s brother,
Bill. Services were last week in Anderson, IN.

about our members.
We have a new supplier for Club shirts and are taking additional orders. If you
would like to have a new polo shirt, with or without pockets, please let Kathy

a little larger than normal. They are lighter and much easier to wash and dry.
Prices are as follows:
Some members have expressed an interest in ordering T-Shirts and
Sweatshirts. They are available. Please let Kathy Groves know if you are
