Official Weekly Bulletin of the Rotary Club of Lafayette, CA
April 10, 2014 | VOL 68 | ISSUE 37

Czar in charge, Debbie Cooper, opened the meeting. Ryan Subota was our greeter and gave a long-winded opening thought, claiming he had the mike, so there. Of course, I seconded that I had control of the cord to the mike.....
Visiting guests: Erin Alter, a guest of Dino Riggio, from Louisville, KY Grant Stubblefield, soon to be a member of our illustrious club, today in fact.
Erin Martin, heading toward membership, attended her second lunch.
Ryan Subota, to be inducted today, enjoyed his last meeting as a guest, looking dapper as ever with a hat this time.

Bill Eames serenaded Jim Jorgensen in his off key version of the Bday song. Numerous Rotarians were spotted covering their ears in self defense!

Annc'ed : Bob Shusta is looking for a home sponsor for a kid from abroad, to take over once his stint is completed this summer.
Mo Williams reminded us to attend the Candy Scramble, April 19 , at 10 am. Come one bunny come all. See the new bunny suit on Gregg.
Dick Holt and John Sherry spoke of the Concert at the Res. They're firming it up and getting it up, so to speak, as they organize the event. This was quoted verbatim from Dick.
Mo Levich talked about the July 19 second "concert at the res", with a theme of USO shows of WWII. July 19th is the date for the Fab Five to bring their families and picnics to hear this sure to be entertaining show.
Larry spoke of the first Dog Show in Lafayette, this coming week. Bark one, bark all!
Ryan Subota and Grant Stubblefield were given their RED badges and officially inducted into the club.
Jim Jorgensen cut into the chocolate-gooey cake, as per his desires, and everyone rejoiced with dessert.

Happy Dollars and Fines: Neither Chief Eric nor Chuck Vogel had their badges on so fines were paid.
Larry Duson showed and paid a fine for iffy attendance. "If he" attended, he'd be a tad wealthier!
Larry Blodgett returned with a tan from a cruise, only second to Anna's tan herself! Who fines the finemaster?! Larry paid last meeting and again today gladly, having had a fine time in the Caribbean.

Speaker: Rocky Termanini about "Combating Cybercrime" part 2.
The numbers of crime on the internet are an astounding 31 million in number. The technology to combat this problem is lagging way behind the criminals. Cloud computing is by far the more secure way to handle your internet business. He spoke at length regarding terrorism, drugs, identity theft, credit card fraud, spying and child pornography that is ever-present on the web. All forms of email are being observed by the Feds, so if you're up to something nefarious, beware! If you ain't scared now....

Raffle: Tom C. Won $2, Jesse W. Won $5 on a jackpot of $25.

Polio milestone attracts media attention

The certification of the World Health Organization's Southeast Asia region as polio-free has led to many stories in the media highlighting Rotary's instrumental role in achieving this important milestone. General Secretary John Hewko joined Rotary member Devin Thorpe last week in a live interview to discuss how we will eradicate polio in the three countries where it still exists: Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan. Watch the video and check out these media mentions.
