A Reflection of Potter Club on the Occasion of Its Eightieth Birthday

Here we are, Lord, to honor EDWARD ELDRED POTTER... and a life exemplified by integrity and vision, high aspirations and lofty achievement, with pride in country and ultimate sacrifice... his life resonating in our minds, yes, but even more in our hearts.

Here we are, Lord, to honor EDWARD ELDRED POTTER CLUB... a fellowship established in bonding brotherhood and lives of service to others... across two centuries impacting our collegiate years in a myriad of character-building ways.

Here we are, Lord, POTTERMEN... (and significant others) reveling in our bountiful memories of our collegiate past with friends, some alas, no longer with us; gathered here tonight appreciative of our opportunity to rekindle friendships in the present, keenly aware of future opportunities and challenges awaiting us to be met all ways and always befitting our association with Edward Eldred Potter: We in him... He in us. Amen

N.B.: The text of this invocation is also available as a text file elsewhere on the web site. A post banquet recording was made by Dave that is also available elsewhere on the web site. (We inadvertently failed to record his words live at the banquet.)

Dave is also a Myskania Plaque honoree.
