The youth chairman reported Mcgan Boyles, White Rock student, received second in the State Youth Volunteer contest. Sixth District President, Sherri Boley, reported she was a guest of the Osborne Post and Auxiliary when they recognized participants in the various youth contests.

Hostesses were Ruth Fleming Hemphill, Texas. He attended schools in Carrollton, Me., as an honor student and attended the University of Missouri. He was united in marriage to Eleanor Nadine Musick in Carrollton, Me., in 1937. This union was blessed with four chil- dren. He was a navy veteran and served in the Pacific at Pearl Harbor. After returning from the war, he was a supervisor with Co-op Oil Re- fineries for many years in Phillipsburg, Kan., and later at Coffeyville, Kan. To Averill, or "Pop" Gender as he was known to his family, was a fierce com- petitor and loved any kind of game. He especially loved cards and had master credits in bridge., He enjoyed all sports and was known lor his athletic abili- ties. Outdoors was where he wanted to be as an avid hunter and fisherman. He continued to play golf and go dancing until a few weeks before his death. He was an accomplished musician and played many musical instruments including the violin, guitar, banjo, pi- ano, organ and keyboard. He was an innovator and in the early fifties built his own version of a pop-up camper that fit on the back of a pickup. He named the camper the Mrs. G' in honor of hi~ wife, Eleanor, who assisted him with the project. He later took over more ambitious projects and built a pontoon boathouse, giving his family and friends hours of enjoy- ment. He assembled a "kit" T.V. and built the cabinet for the family's first television. Friends questioned this ambitious pi'oject and asked why he just didn't buy a T.V. His answer "be- cause it cost less and it was a chal- lenge." He was especially proud that at the age of 80, never having any computer experience, he checked out a book to study and with one hour of instruction was "surfing the net with the best of them." Thisgave him an opportunity to keep in close contact with family, especially his grandchildren. He was always active in church work where he shared his musical tal- ent. He was preceded in death by his parents; wile, Eleanor; son, Charles Averill Gender, Jr.; and brother, Truman Dale Gender.
