“I was on the Leadership Council for the Boys and Girls Clubs and Jo Bright came to me to see if I would build a kid-proof ping pong table,” Tom said. He said he used large pieces of lumber, such as 2x6 sizes rather than what is usually used. Once Mrs. Bright had all her Monahan-made ping pong tables, all of the other clubs wanted them too. Boys and Girls Club Director David Litterell was at the Sand Springs Boys and Girls Club at the time, and he remembered the tables.
During the building tour, Tom pointed out the photo of the officer who was Area Commander when he started volunteering. It was Major Rolan Chambliss, who started in 1981. I think it’s great that we have such loyal volunteers. Another volunteer who participated in the Business Visitation was longtime Advisory Board member George Basore, pictured above, left. Especially as we approach the holiday season, we realize every day that we couldn’t do it without you!
“You could park a truck on those things,” Tom said.
