Rotary Celebrates Season With Music
Annual Christmas Program Features Musical Members
December 26, 2009
By: Stephen Kent
Last Weeks Meeting - December 22, 2009
Andy Rogers on fiddle and squeeze box, Ron Bloomfield on acoustic and electric guitar,
Jeff Yantz on guitar and harp, vocalist Rob Clark,
Lee Newton on sax, Molly Newton and Leo Najar on keyboard.
Following a long standing tradition, Rotary celebrated the season with a musical offering by some of our many musical members. The group played some traditional tunes for the season, a little rock, some jazz and other favorites.
It's great tradition and a fitting way to finish out the year.
CLUB NEWS and ANNOUNCEMENTS
Congratulations and thanks to Valerie Roof who was presented with her Paul Harris Plus One and to Linda Heemstra attained her Paul Harris plus Four.
Dee Dee Wacksman will be going to the Rose Bowl and will work on the Rotary Float that will appear in the big parade. Be sure to watch for it if you see the televised coverage.
The Rotary Concert (formerly the Lee and Molly Newton Rotary Concert) is tentatively schedules for April. If you'd like to participate as a volunteer or a performer the committee wants to hear from you. The committee will also be selling program ads.
Vocational Days are coming up. Griff, Ralph and Dee Dee ask that, if you plan to host students, please fill out a form as soon as possible and turn it in to one of them. Bay Med will host students on March 2, and Delta College will do March 16. Since Delta takes such a large group, the committee prefers that Rotarians who host students take the March 2 date.
Lunch is now on the table at noon allowing members to start the meal earlier. The meeting starts by 12:30 and the speaker starting by 12:50. The meeting typically adjourns around 1:15!
