“To me, football is so much about mental
toughness, it's digging deep, it's doing
whatever you need to do to help a team
win and that comes in a lot of shapes and
forms.” Tom Brady
Bill Cinquini
He may want to add: “And sometimes
that comes in a poor call by the opposing
team coach.” The Pats did a good job but
sometimes things turn on the most
unexpected event.
Saturday we helped launch the Napa
Valley Circle-K Club. Making the event a
success were Toni McIntosh, Anne
Schramm, Mike Scully, Larry Stofer, Chris
Butler, June Moroney, Ralph Giannini,
and me. Attending were about 50
students from several schools in the
region, including USF, Cal, S.F. State,
Diablo Valley College, and of course Napa
Valley College. It was an inspiring event
and the Circle-K Club is off to a good
start. (See photos on backside)
A slight glitch (interesting word, meaning
hiccup, bug, or malfunction) in our plan
to relocate the shed from the Rands
property to Enchanted Hills caused a
change in plans for our K-Day this coming
Saturday. Tony Fletcher and staff have
come up with many other great work
projects for us. However, there is a
growing promise for a wet weekend. We
have kind of forgotten that this is winter
and we certainly need rain, so we may
need to postpone the work day. More on
this as the weatherman finalizes
We do not have a special speaker today
but will discuss upcoming events and
opportunities. I might also call on a few
members to share 2 true and 1 false
stories about themselves. Be prepared!
