A liitle note from our fellow ZSC members just might help cheer them up and on the road to recovery...Chuck
We all like to play Shuffleboard but some go over and above to be sure we have a voice in the Central District governing body. ZSC is proud to have four key Officers on the Central District Board.
John Houghtaling was elected Central District President for 2019-2020.
John was also elected to the ZSC Board of Directors recently.
Mike Seyfer is the Treasurer and we all know how detail oriented Mike is, so our money is well taken care of.
Good luck to all and we thank these ZSC members for the extra time they give on behalf of us all.
ZSC CENTRAL DISTRICT OFFICERS
Tim Baker was elected to 4th V.P.
Tim will be the Amateur's voice on the Board replacing Gerrit Dykman.
Jim Chandler was re-elected to serve his second term as 1st V.P.
Jim and his wife Ginny also co- chair the HOF Fun Day.
ZSC MEMBERS REFINISHING COURTS
Henry Strong, John Houghtaling, Frank Pogel, Jim Carder, George Darwin, Tim Baker & Ed Sterling are members that have been working on 10 courts in a park in Lakeland.

This hard working crew brings in a lot of money each year for our own building fund.
All members owe this crew a great deal of appreciation.
Nice job completed at Light & Life Park in Lakeland by our talented court refinishing crew.

Good afternoon Chuck,
just had a little nap, thought I would let you know I had my Surgery, yesterday afternoon-Sept 17th.. was 2-1/2 hrs. long. Little long than than anticipated, as the Tumor was bigger and going into the spine area, with the facial nerve running through the center of the Tumor. The Surgeon was excellent, still have my speech. eye sight, hearing and was able to save the facial nerve, little weak on that side but will get stronger as I heal. GOD is GOOD and MERCIFUL!!Had extremely high B.P., do not know why as I was calm about the whole situation, guess my body thought differently!! On the operation table my B.P. was 232/191- stroke range and Sherri,(our daughter , a nurse) was surprised they even operated. GOD is GOD!! WAs cut in front top of my right ear down to the throat , neck area. Have to see the Surgeon in two weeks and all should be healed! Very weak but GRACIOUSLY HAPPY!!
Think Orland took it harder!! You see, Women are stronger!!, so I told him. Ha!!
