9 Topper Red Hatters... On the Go You might say that our lun- cheon-meeting in March turned out to be a "colorful" expe- rience. Our group of Red Hat- ters dined at the Blue Dog Inn in Lincoln on the eve of "the wearin' of the Green"... March 16th ! Eleven members enjoyed a delightful luncheon in their pri- vate dining area. I certainly h~ can't say enough about the great quality of their food. Besides "~ being very tasty and reasonably priced, their selection of dining well-rounded which treats is often results, I'm sad to say, in a well-rounded diner as well. Blue Dog also includes a nice assort- ment of delicious desserts. One member, who shall remain anonymous, came dressed in a wild green outfit representative of an exuberant Leprechaun full to the gills with a whimsical good nature. All were delighted to see her green display, even down to the bright green nail polish = she sported. Sure and begorrah, girl.., you made our day'. Place setting decorations were most appropriate for the early St. Pat's Day celebration. They were furnished by - Linda Dier- ker and Pat Straumanm co host- esses for the day. A brief meeting ensued. It was proposed that we make a donation to the Latham Meth- odist church, which is sponsor- ing the Heart of Illinois work camp coming to the area in the near future. The motion was proposed by Sandra Ohler and seconded by Phyllis Edwards. Some details concerning the work camp were set out in the March 1 issue of the Times. Please check future issues of the Times for more details as they becom~ available.

For those members who have been prevented from attending because of illness, bad weather, etc., we miss you and pray that you are soon with us again. Submitted By - Pat Straumann The Titanic... 14 Years Early American author Morgan Robertson wrote a book, "Futility, or the Wreck of the Titan", about the sinking of an unsinkable ocean liner. When you see the cover, you figure you're looking at a fictionalized version of the Titanic. Robertson didn't wait for the Titanic to actually sink before writing about it. The Wreck of the Titan was published in 1898, 14 years before RMS Titanic was even finished being built. The similarities between Robertson's work and the Titanic disaster are so astounding that one has to imagine if the White Star Line built Titanic to Robertson's specs as a dare. The Titan was described as =the largest craft afloat and the greatest of the works of men," "equal to that of a first class hotel," and, of course, "unsink- able". Both ships were British-owned steel vessels, both around 800 feet long and sank after hitting an iceberg in the North Atlantic, in April, "around mid- night." Sound like enough to keep you up at night? ,Just a strange coincidences. Angela Dumire graduated March 5, 2010 from Midwest Uni- versity Chicago College of Pharmacy with a Doctor of Pharmacy Degree.
