Jim Burrowes and David Glynn both passed within the past year. They were both universally well liked by club members. Both were active members whose good nature and positive attitude were well enjoyed by the membership.

Jim was a frequent demonstrator at club functions and was a winner in many of the club contests. He was also a willing  and active mentor to many members. David wanted to try everything and did, and was usually successful.

They are missed.
