Rotary Happenings - March 5, 2009
By: Walt Kaplin
There was special auction activity ten minutes prior to the regular meeting. Past President Kathleen Olson (Associations-Animal Welfare) and Rick Olson explained and demonstrated the Bid-O- Gram process for the March 21 Auction.
President Jeff rang the bell as his loyal subjects stood at attention. The invocation was given by Lauren Walker (Associations-Social Services-Housing). Barry Benson (Real Estate-Residential) led us with the National Anthem while Barbara Mead (Accounting-Management Advisory) assisted on the piano.
Anniversaries included: Barbara James 1 year; Barb Van Haren 4 years; Ann Voves 10 years and Terry Conner 24 years. Congratulations and thank you for your support.
Sandy Luce (Finance-Banking) introduced and welcomed the four visiting Rotarians in attendance.
President Jeff invited Rotarians with guests to stand and be recognized while Roving Mics were passed by Krysta Willoughby
