EDDIE STUBBS RETIRES FROM WSM RADIO

I will always remember leaving the club on Wednesday nights jumping in the car and reaching for the radio knob and tuning in 650 AM and listening to Stubbs talking about the songs and history of the songs. The man knew his Country Singers and history.

BUM OF THE MONTH

The BUM luncheon will be Monday 9/14/2020 at noon at the usual venue Jabby Joes Island Ave Mckees Rocks. I called Jabby Joe’s regarding the Bum o’ the Month luncheon and Sue says they’re open with limited capacity.   The max she can put in one group with tables put together is eight.   More than that would have to be at separate tables or outside.

For the  Chapter 6 QCWA members, the Fall quarterly meeting has been canceled, and the scheduling of the Winter meeting will be determined later in the year.

 

BUM OF THE MONTH

The BUM OF THE MONTH will continue tomorrow June 7 at noon at Jabby Joe’s Bar & grill in Mckees Rocks. You will need a mask to enter and the entrance will be on the street side instead of the usual rear entrance.
