Glendora Vegeterian Club

Does Amelia Earhart have any local ties to us? Yes, the Aeronautical Museum in Schenectady/Scotia has a replica of her plane. In 1931 she married author and publisher George Putnam of Rye, NY, Westchester Co. Before she disappeared over the Pacific Ocean in July, 1937, at age 40, she lived on Locust Ave. just south of Harrison, NY, on the border of White Plains. That street is now Amelia Earhart Lane. What was she trying to do? She was trying to be the first person to fly around the world. It is believed that her plane ran out of fuel, and she was declared lost at sea in January, 1939. Is there a statue of Earhart in Harrison? Yes, at the railroad station. Glendora, why are you so enamored of this circumstance? Around 1983 I lived in White Plains just 6 blocks from where Amelia Earhart lived.


1. A girl said my boyfriend and I have a strange and wonderful relationship. He’s strange and I’m wonderful.

2. The mother said the choir was flat. Daddy said the sermon was too long. The little daughter said, “I thought it was a good show for a dime.”

3. A customer in a men’s shop asked, “May I try on the navy blue suit in the window?” The owner said, “No, you will have to use the dressing room.”

4. A little girl asked a nun, “Why do you wear the same clothes every day?” Replied the nun, “It’s a habit.”

5. The parents wanted the boy to get used to high class dining, so they took him to a posh restaurant. When the waiter asked the boy what he wanted, the boy answered, “A peanut butter sandwich.” His parents said, “No, order something you’ve never seen before.” The boy said, “I’ve never seen a peanut butter sandwich cost $17 before!”

6. In Philippians 4, the Apostle Paul wrote, “I have learned to be content in no matter what state I find myself.” That includes the state of New York.
