NEXT MEETING: January 4, 2018
Boasting about Bolivia
Alan Blavins will again share fish stories from his recent trip to Bolivia. We have no photos or other information about Alan’s presentation at this time. Based on Alan’s past performance, both on the river and at the podium, it should be good.
MEETING OF December 21, 2018
President Jerry Feagley called the meeting to order and asked HENRY MOE to lead the pledge. Sid shared his thought for the day: “ Knowledge is knowing that the tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in fruit salad. “ Jerry reminded us that we will return to our old meeting hour from 12:30 to 1:30 starting with the first meeting of January – January 4th.
Visiting Rotarians and Guests
Simon Ellis introduced his son Matthew Piatt as our only guest of the day.
Happy and Sad Dollars
A Club Conversation
Jerry gave the floor to Jan Brown, who led the meeting. She started with 2 thoughts:
Jan started her presentation by giving the group an overview of the current Board members and their positions as well as the upcoming year’s slate of Board members.
She came prepared with a brief PowerPoint presentation (here) updating us on the following:
Jan ended the presentation asking us this question: “Who will we invite to be Rotarians?” Tom Butt called for 100 new members by 2020!!!
Josh Genser then presented a request for our ideas for a signature project for our club for the 2020-2021 year. He gave us some ideas he had such as Pogo Park, (they want to build a new playground) The Arts Commission might help us donate a Sculpture. There is also YMCA, PAL, School District. He would like to get our ideas to him by late January when they expect to make a decision.
David Brown mentioned some of the plans in the making:
Sid suggested that we create a 1920/2020 logo for our flags that we hand out to visitors from other clubs and visits to other clubs.
Jerry asked us to please recall historical information and search for old photos we may have for display at our 100th anniversary event.
