There are Seven meetings to go in the presidency of Matthew Owen. Sue Bosch led us in the flag salute. Matt Messner gave the invocation.
Matt Murrish needs some help delivering the Dictionaries we give to 3rd graders every year. Active weeks are 5/22 and 5/29. It was Alicia Cox’s birthday. Craig Hansen won $75 in the NCAA raffle and immediately signed it over to the Rotary Polio Plus fund. President-elect Bruce Smith announced that Fireside Meetings were coming up. Then, in unusual move, President Owen retired from the room and Rotarians at each table formed groups to express their opinions about the club and how things were going. That took about 15 minutes. Bruce Smith announced that there would be a Club Social Friday May 19th at 5:30pm.
Finally, after the drawing, Matthew told us our scheduled program presenter couldn’t make it . So no program about Rotoplast in Bangladesh. Instead we were treated to a re-run- The history of the tournament of Roses parade. Someone asked how much the early leaver fine would be, and Matthew raised it to $20. everybody stayed.
