It was discussed here at a meeting of city employees two years ago. It would cover only full-time employees. The program would cost the city about $3,700, though a new actuarial study would be required to determine the exact my uled for December 14.

With nary a lady to give advice or help, Saline Rotarians last Sunday put on their first annual Steak Broil and won the hearts of hundreds with their cooking. Held at the Farm Council grounds on a perfect August afternoon, the feast was such a hit that Rotarians are confident of at least doubling their ticket sale for next year's event. Preparations went into high gear early Sunday morning, with the table committee setting things up in the open-air shelter. The pace peaked in early afternoon with "Mr. Meat" and his pit committee preparing the steaks. And the work continued until dusk as Rotarians teamed up as a cleanup crew. Rotarians this week expressed appreciation to Pat Brown ("Mr. Meat") and to the Michigan Livestock Improvement Association, who made his service available here, for helping make the event so successful.
