Jon Peterson drew Chuck Shreffler’s card first. Chuck is slowly winding down his law practice as he approaches retirement. However, he is still available for Breakfast Club members.

The 2nd card drawn was Julius Websters’. He has had a good summer at the lake and they have a healthy backlog of work at DJ Kranz.

The 3rd car drawn was Tom Whaleys’ and the Saints have been having a good year business wise as their first year as a AAA club. They have been averaging 6400 fans per game.

The 4th card drawn was Neil Roers’. He left Midwest One and joined Platinum Bank earlier this summer. He enjoys the fast turnaround he can offer on business loan applications. We will here more from him on September 15.

The rest of the meeting time was spent on membership and growing the club by utilizing our own networks.
