PRESIDENT JAN asked us to keep the following in our thoughts and prayers: BOB BROCK; and the family and friends of CRAIG IRVINE whose mother passed away Monday.
GORDON KINGMA introduced Bill Olds who presented an informative video reviewing the history of Lafayette Life Insurance Co. He outlined the strengths of the company before the merger with Western and Southern Financial Group. After the merger their ratings improved and the whole operation went from good to great. When asked about the effects of Katrina on the company, he said there were none. The Lafayette staffing patterns have not changed since the merger. Bill took a moment to publicly thank JIM HOBBS for being a superb mentor.
RAY PEETERS introduced Jimi Giles and Brian Callahan from Jefferson High School. Each received certificate and a travel mug with the four-way test to commemorate meeting with us.
