Club Meeting in Judge David Sam’s Chambers


The club members who attended our meeting in Judge David Sam’s Chambers were treated to a very enjoyable time. After having lunch, we went into his office where we heard him tell more about the history of his family, particularly his parents experiences and their journey to this country.  We could feel for his love for this country and his devotion to its founding documents and principles as well as his desire to include fairness in the rulings he makes. Absent from the picture are Gordon Lewis and Dale Kerby who were taking pictures of the group.
