Betsey started off by recognizing the reason for the meeting at Kendall was because of missing Lebanon Rotarian Fred Carleton who no longer could attend our meetings in Lebanon. Fred looked great and said he enjoyed the occasion and did miss the weekly meetings. Later, while going on a wonderful visit of the facilities at Kendall, I again spied Fred in the weight room working out on one of the machines; a true inspiration. Betsey thanked the wait staff and the kitchen for their superb service and then introduced Becky Smith, CEO of Kendall of Hanover, who spoke to us about Kendall. After a few acknowledgements she turned the meeting over to David Urso, Director of Marketing to brief us on Kendall.

- Jesse Austin and Mom and Dad.
- Laslow Bardos and Lynn Davis.
- Asher Lance and Mom and instructor Dave Weldman.
- Jesse Austin: Theme was service above self. You must serve others and not yourself. Need 1) steadfastness, 2) selflessness, 3) sacrifice.
- Asher Lance: Theme above self. Discussed family’s disabled guest in Cairo with Cerebral Palsy. Asher’s addiction to affluence and its effect on David.
- Laslow Bardos: Theme was the 4-way test. Guided by his mother. You need to have your own thoughts. Discussed problems with his grandfather. Life may not be fair but you need to be fair to others. The Rotary 4-way test is about his Mom.
Oregon is the only state to have a different design on each side of its flag.
Rotary will receive 3.3 million miles from United's 10 Million Charity Miles giveaway, which took place in December. Thanks to your votes, we finished in a close second to Shriners Hospital and received 800,000 more miles than the previous year. The miles will provide 33 international airline tickets for humanitarian programs.
For the past several years, United has given at least 25,000 miles to each of its nonprofit partners participating in the promotion. The remaining portion of the 10 million miles is distributed to participating charities based on the percentage of total votes received.
Rotary has been United's partner for many years through the Rotary Miles program, which provides free airfare for hundreds of children and adults in need of lifesaving surgery and other worthy causes.
