Change For Tonight, Monday, October 23, 2017

Due a re-scheduled school activity for Brodie’s son, he will not be able to make our meeting. But, the Big Oak Ranch has offered us his Dad, John Croyle as a replacement. John played football at Alabama for Coach Bryant in the early 70’s, and after his playing days, he gave up an opportunity to play pro Football, and instead founded the Big Oak Ranch in 1974. I am disappointed that Brodie will not be able to make it, but family does come first, but i am really excited to have John Croyle join us tonight.
