Opinion: another view

Thursday, August 9, 2012 by The Press in Local News

Good advice from What's-his-name

It's hopeless.

At a summer carnival or on a stop at the grocery store, I see an acquaintance across the lawn or down the aisle. I offer a warm smile and a "Hey, how are you?"

A friendly conversation ensues and all the while I am frantically trying to remember the person's name and sometimes even how I met her.

If I am lucky, she will steer the conversation in the direction of recalling a shared event or a mutual friend, helping me to recall where we met, but still, the name is often mystifyingly gone. It comes back to me on the drive home.

The Northampton Exchange Club is pursuing a $10,000 grant from a local nonprofit marketing company.

If approved, the money will be used to provide image makeover services.

The grant would show local organizations that the Exchange Club is interested in continuing to reach out to the community, individuals and worthy causes.

In other business at a recent meeting, the club decided to form a new committee called the orientation committee.
