Topic: Time is the only commodity that once we spend it, we can’t get it back.

How do we make Service Feed Self. She spoke about the difference of being a Rotarian and why we are Rotarians.

Debby Storre had a lobster and oyster filled visit with her son in Nova Scotia! Bring us some next time, Debby!

Although we have yet to have a winner pull the Joker out of the deck of cards to win the gold (actual gold!), Past President, Kim Bauriedel, gave us all a good laugh by trying to convince us the Jack of Clubs was “close enough.

Past President, Klark Swan, gave it her best go at auctioning off the traveling basket that DG Jennifer brought from Peteluma Sunrise, but she was quickly saved from herself when Past President, Pat Folkins stood up and made the initial (and final) bid of $500!!! Wow, Wow, WOW! Thanks Pat! He then also convinced Past President, Carlton Nielson to buy a second basket for the same cost!
