On This Day in 1907
At 10:20 am., explosions occurred at the No. 6 and No. 8 mines at Monongah, West Virginia. The explosions ripped through the mines at 10:28 a.m., causing the earth to shake as far as eight miles away, shattering buildings and pavements, hurling people and horses violently to the ground, and knocking streetcars off the rails. Three-hundred and sixty-two men and boys died. It remains the worst mine disaster in U.S. history. Over 3,200 miners were killed on the job in U.S. mines in 1907 because mining companies persistently disregarded recognized safety practices.

Brothers and Sisters:

   First off, let me wish everyone a Happy New Year.
   The Christmas party was a smash hit. We had one of the best turnouts ever. The food and the hall were awesome. A special thanks to the executive committee for doing another spectacular job. The only bad part was Mother Nature hitting us with the snow.
   Thanks to each and every one of you who provided cakes for the cake wheel. It was a huge success. Thanks to Mike Krainer and his crew for all their help. I am not naming them, because I know I will leave someone out, but you know who you are.
   Congratulations to John Cook for winning the basket of cheer, and to the Prunty family who won the 50/50.
