U.S. Congressman Howard Coble, representing the North Carolina 6th District since 1985, will be our speaker. One of the more approachable Congressman in America, you can check out what he believes about various issues here. Howard listens with grace and humility to those who may not fully believe as he believes, but he always does his duty, to his District, the State of North Carolina, and America. If you call or write him, don't be surprised if he wakes you up when he returns your call one early Saturday morning.
- Please rise when Howard takes the podium,
- The Four-Way test - yes you could be summoned to the podium to lead the club in its recitation,
- Please rise when Howard leaves the podium or whenever etiquette chairman Midgett nods or winks or gives us the sign to follow his lead. (Hey, what's the worst that could happen?)
Noteworthy coincidence - Sixty-three years ago today, on August 14, 1945, President Truman announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally, ending World War II (go to article).
