NEXT MEETING: May 26, 2017
Meet the Old-timers
When we were inducted into the Rotary, we made short presentations that answered the question, “Who am I?” Over the course of many years, our answers to that question will have changed. But some would say, “Nonsense, I’m the same person I was when I was 20.” And that leads to the nub of the question, “Who am I?” Our answers hinge on our feelings about change and a core identity.
This Friday we can ponder such questions, or choose to ignore them completely as we listen to several longtime members address the question, directly or not, Who am I?
MEETING OF May 19, 2017
President Josh called the meeting to order and asked Ric Ambrose to lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Herb Cole asked for silent prayers for peace, hope, and justice.
