The treasurer's report was given and was voted on and was accepted by the club. A short business meeting was held about the Strawberry Festival. March 20 is the next meeting. Clarence Howes By Violet Collier Tribute To A Fine Man Clarence Howes: a man who adored his wife, his two sons, and his grandchildren He left us last week just as quietly as the way he lived his life. He loved his God, was a religious man who always had that soft smile on his face and a handshake for all. He was one of the finest strawberry farmers of our parish. I know because I packed strawberries for him for many years. He raised some of the finest and most beautiful berries I have ever seen. He had berry pickers who came back to his farm each season. They liked to work for him because he was generous and kind to them and of course his crop was always the best to handle. Of his two sons Clarence Henry is the eldest. He is educated and a fine worker in his field of work he chose, working with people. He didn't choose to stay on the farm, but is a very successful man. He is the father of our famous plastic surgeon, Dr. Randolph Howes, M.D., Ph.D. To me he'll always be that little yellow haired boy I knew, Randy, who wouldn't help in the strawberry field because even then he knew what he wanted to do with his hands He had to protect them because he was going to be a great doctor and help heal people He loves his music too. I need not say more about this man. You have all heard about and read the stories of his good deeds here in our USA and the good things he has been doing in the Phillipines. I have all these stories in my scrapbook l'd say these sons of Clarence Howes are a chip off of the old block. We'll miss you, Clarence, from our midst, but I know you are one of God's chosen few and you are now resting in peace, no more pain or Velma Kraft 386-3754 For a Complete review of Your  e |IlguraIIC Needs.....
