Down East Seniors swears in new president

Published 8:29pm Monday, January 7, 2013

The Down East Seniors men’s club of Washington will have a new president in 2013. The club held its annual Christmas dinner recently at The Bank Bistro and Bar on Main Street in Washington. At that event, outgoing President Jack Pyburn swore in Bob Diefendorf, who will become president for 2013. The Down East Seniors meet on most Wednesdays, and each meeting features a speaker. Recent speakers have talked on subjects such as current issues in the city government, the history of Washington, fossil collecting and secret U.S. Navy submarine operations.
Anyone interested is welcome to attend a meeting. Consult the About Town section of the Washington Daily News each Wednesday for the time and location of each meeting and information about the speaker.
