Linda from Philly, one of the founders of the Saturday Morning in America Club, met a group of us for lunch on Saturday, November 17, at La Madelaine in Marietta. In keeping with true Southern Hospitality, we greeted her with a welcome gift of Vidalia Onion "Grits Bits." (We'll all be anxious to hear what she thinks of that "treat".)
The conversation was stimulating, and there was lots of laughter. We talked about the groundswell of growth in the local chapters of the Saturday Morning in America Club and the direction each local chapter is taking. Each has its own personality, but with a common thread of love for our country, conservative values and intelligent conversation.
We shared our mutual interest in trying to organize a national group get-together over the summer to further develop friendships with fellow Bill Bennett fans, lots of lively conversation and sharing of opinions and ideas, and always with plenty of "candor, intelligence and goodwill"! ("Morning in America" slogan)
Linda from Philly brought our chapter a laminated menu from the diner in Philadelphia where their chapter meets, signed by dozens of the Philly Girls, along with an American flag we'll use as a center piece during our monthly meetings.
Thanks to Keith (Buckhead) and Linda C. (Buckhead) for organizing the luncheon and to Linda from Philly for spending the afternoon with us.
