Jack Whitman invited Carol Cole Masarra's brothers,Woody and Eddie Cole and nephew Wood Cole the Fourth!  Dick,
"rocket scientist," Ingle brought wife, Susan, who was also a member of the class of '66.  Jim Collins and Jack Whitman invited prospective member Johnny Tanner, son of Beauty Queen Barbara Tanner and the late John Tanner, once a long-time, beloved member of our club.  Johnny is owner and operator of C.M. Tanner Grocery.  Derick Newton brought two prospective members:  Leila Shaver (co-sponsored by Richard Dixon), owner of the Shaver Law Group, an estate planning firm based in the Burson Center; and Juyanda Norman, owner of Need It Most, a successful homecare agency.  Lacey Robinson arrived with new member Art Bower.  Sponsored by Lacey, Art, now serving as Treasurer of St. Margaret's Episcopal Church, worked in advertising for 40 years. 
Stuart Yahm was all smiles sitting between his two guests:  daughter Michele Peterson fro Sacramento, California, and Camille Yahm, once a Christian education missionary and one of the few persons in Georgia who speaks fluent Mandarin.
