We are all aware of the tragic event that took the life of
Deane Kenny Stryker,

Our thoughts and prayers go out
to her Family and Friends
along with the staff of the Winchester Library
and those individuals affected.
 
 
For most in the room today the name  Albert "Al" Hovannesian has no significance. If you were told he was a Past President of this club you could research the club site, find the list of past presidents and find the name Hovannesian at number 45 out of 90 and that's about all the information available. I would like to give you a little insight into who Al was besides a name on a list....

 
Jack Kean spoke about Jim Beck at today's luncheon. For those of you unable to attend, here is what Jack had to say in rememberance of Jim Beck.
