Ken Stodder led us in the flag salute and Tom McMurray gave the invocation, mentioning that he thought God is a hound dog and so was our president. He liked that. It was Matthew Owen’s last meeting. Keith Crossley came forward to accept a Paul Harris donation from Virginia Bass. There were awards for Nancy Dean and Carlton Nielsen, Rotarians of the Year.
Matt Murrish got a plaque for delivering 200 Dictionaries single-handedly. We cruised down memory lane together, remembering the 10.000 we gave To Betty Kwan Chin, the 110 frozen turkeys we gave to the Rescue Mission, and the 40 bunk beds we had put together for The Rescue Mission and Betty.
Then the Debunking began, led by Jay Bahner. Will Kay , as Comey, and Paul Brisso as himself accused Matt of not following the four-way test. Owen was escorted out of the room and came back dressed as Hillary Clinton, the candidate for whom he had guaranteed a win last November. Chuck Ellsworth had a Trump mask on, and repeatedly demanded that Hillary be jailed. The assembled Rotarians voted him guilty, and he was handcuffed and left the Elks Lodge in the back of a police car, sirens and lights going.
That was it in a Nutshell.
