Fellow Phoenix ASPE members,

Fellow ASPE Phoenix Chapter Members,
Hello perfect weather!  Hopefully you all are managing life now that “snowbird season” is officially peaked on us here in the Valley of the Sun.  Here’s what we have to look forward to this month:

Our speaker this month will be our very own Mike Olson.  Mike is the current Phoenix ASPE Chapter Corresponding Secretary and ASPE Society Committee Chair of the Long-Range Planning Committee and has served our chapter amazingly since beginning his involvement – we are truly lucky to have him!  In his session this month he will discuss “The History of Plumbing” – his general description is as follows:

You are stranded on a desert island.  Which would you sooner have with you a doctor or a plumber?  You may want to think about your answer.

Questions like these have been asked throughout the ages as civilization evolved, starting with primitive plumbing around 2,700 BC to today’s modern plumbing systems.  Review will extend thru the “Dark Ages”, lead and wooden piping systems along with humorous anecdotal evidence of plumbing systems.  
As always, if you have any suggestions or thoughts for improvement, please let me know.  Also, if you read this far into my column, let me know.  First person to message me I’ll take to a lunch (to a mutually-agreed-upon choice). 

Thanks!

Very Respectfully,
