December 14 – “A salute to our veterans with personal stories from our own members”

Speakers – Margot MacDonald, Carl Veazie, and Dick Mitchell
Members of the University of Claremont will speak about their own experiences during World War Two. Margot Mac Donald was a censor during the war and had the task of opening mail to make sure no military secrets were sent. Hers was a most unusual task of which we have heard very little. Carl Veazie will show pictures of his life in uniform. He served in the Signal Corps in the European Theater, and saw everything from the V-2 bombing of London to German concentration camps after their liberation. Dick Mitchell will have his own tales of the South Pacific, Island-hopping from New Guinea to the Philippines. He says that, although he saw some rough duty, some of his “tales” are very funny.
Introducer: Mel Boynton
Fellowship: Bob Weingartner

December 21 – “Dr. Benjamin Franklin, a Journey into the 18th Century.”

Speaker – Arthur Ludwick
A part of American history will come to life with a visit from Benjamin Franklin, who is spry and perky for an 83-year old. Arthur Ludwick will portray Franklin, who will entertain us with tales of his youth, his education (which ended when he was 10 years old), and his varied professions. Mr. Ludwick, a Glendora resident, has been impersonating the former statesman with great success. “I’m here to remember his life for you and relate it to you,” Mr. Ludwick tells his audience, adding, “It is a personal privilege to be before you this 21st day of December 1789.” Mr. Ludwick developed this presentation after retiring as the chief financial officer for Rain Bird in 2004.
