"That was quite an assemblage of leading Rotarians from
throughout the 769th District that came here last night to formally install High
Point's second club, the Furnitureland, in a gala dinner party last evening at
Holiday Inn West, home base of the new club which meets there for its Monday luncheons.
The attendant fireworks of an electrical storm which threatened to interrupt the
electrical service never accomplished that, but gave an eerie background to the
otherwise delightful occasion. Rarely have so many past governors, most of them
just returned from their International Convention in Australia, gathered here
as were on hand to help install the new club, 37th of the district. Thomasville's
Jim Lambeth Jr. did a masterful job of emceeing the event, for which Greensboro's
Arnold A. Shiffman was speaker with a challenge for the club to make its place
of usefulness in service of its community. Welcome, Furnitureland Rotary, born
so auspiciously with a great charter group!"
