The Honorable Judge Joseph Farah was our speaker on Thursday. The Judge always does a great job of informing the club of many legal issues in Genesee county. Most recently he has been appointed to hear cases involving civil suits for those involved with the Flint water crisis. Approx 18,000 cases. Good luck, Judge Joe. BTW nice suit!

As reported last week, John Losinski suffered a slip and fall. He had to have surgery on his ankle, which required 2 plates and some screws. Get well soon, John.
