D-D-Debbie Cooper, looking quite Czarina-like with her hair down, opened the mtg, and Bud(love that name) Molthrop acted as greeter and gave his thought for the day, as this Buddy slaved away over the notes for the meeting. Meanwhile Grant(red badger)Stubblefield hustled the members for signatures toward his blue badge. Peggy took Bob Aguilar's place as Raffler.
Visiting Rotarians: Dr. Ron Light, a frequent visitor, considered by most to be a full fledged Lafayette Rotary member.

Guests: Erin Martin, soon to be a red badger

Annc'ed : John Sherry spoke of the district conference that he attended with Bob Shusta and Dave Abrahams, reportedly one of the best in his tenure as a Rotarian.

In place of the usual speaker, Dick Holt and John Sherry spoke of the "Concert at the Res" this Saturday and all the details there of. By the time you read this, the event will have been the best concert event ever. Mark my words! These guys have worked their hearts out once again and deserve all the praise we can give them. Donations anyone? Knuck, knuck!!

Raffle: Jackpot of $25, $2-Jesse Wellen, $5- Peggy who then won the Jackpot(the fix is on!)

And that's how it went down according to this worn and torn notetaker.
Gotta love ya all, Buddy.

In an effort to promote global development and volunteer service, Rotary and Peace Corps have agreed to participate in a one-year pilot program in the Philippines, Thailand, and Togo.

Under the agreement, Rotary clubs and Peace Corps volunteers are encouraged to share their resources and knowledge to boost the impact of development projects in these three countries.

Opportunities for collaboration include supporting community projects, training, networking, and community education. Through the Peace Corps Partnership Program, Rotary clubs can continue to provide small grants to support volunteers and their communities. read
