Happy Dollars time was highlighted by Michele's payment of $52 in advance to cover late dollars for the coming year.
 
Bruce put in a plea for a 4th golfer to join Bethel's team for the Rumford club's golf tournament July 10.  (Contact Bruce if you can play.)
 
Arla Patch's presentation topic was Truth and Reconciliation for indigenous peoples everywhere, focusing on native Americans,
and in particular the injustices involved in separating native American children from their parents.  A recent positive step in
Maine is the establishment of the Maine Wabanaki - State Child Welfare Truth & Reconciliation Commission.  Maine is the first state to establish such a commission.
