MEETING OF October 20, 2017
President Connie Tritt called the meeting to order. Stacey led us in the Pledge to the Flag. Herb invoked deeper thoughts and higher powers. Syd’s thought-for-the-day: “Even duct tape cannot fix stupid, but it can muffle the noise.”
For the last time, Darlene Quinville was welcomed as the guest of Jon Lawlis. See below.
Connie inducted Darlene and into the Richmond Rotary so her guest status is officially over. Darlene is now one of us.
Connie also conferred Oscar Garcia with his blue badge. Yeah!
And thought she wasn’t prepared for it, Cecilia Orozco stepped up to Connie’s invitation to give her Who Am I? presentation.
Cecilia attended Richmond High School and UC Berkeley. She aspired to a law degree but for reasons of romance and opportunity she turned her sights to real estate, a field in which she now enjoys a successful career. Cynthia told us she gets a lot of satisfaction out of helping people—and since she has 3 small kids, she gets a lot of practice. Congratulations, Cecilia, on earning your blue badge.
Happy and Sad Dollars
