The October meeting of Cosmos Club was held at the First National Bank.
President Linda Newbold called the meeting to order and presented the afternoon’s speaker, Eric Brazzel, Ruston ﬁreman. He illustrated his talk with slides which depicted house ﬁres and car ﬁres and discussed response time from the receipt of the alarm at the station to arrival at the ﬁre site.
He strongly emphasized the importance of homes having working smoke detectors and checking batteries in them several times a year.
This past week, our community lost a legend and a gentleman when Mickey McHale died.
Anyone from Ruston could list the many different roles and achievements of this remarkable man. He was a business leader and an entrepreneur, an intelligent man with a kind heart.
At DART, we will always remember Mickey McHale as a hero. He was a man who fiercely championed the cause of families who have been abused by people they love. He was one of our strongest and most passionate supporters.
