The Marine Corp taught President Joel to be on time and so sure enough he gaveled our meeting to order right at 12:15 PM, Pacific Standard Time. Bruce Jagger gave the Invocation, Chris King led the Pledge, and Chuck Perelman sang God Bless America, with the rest of us in tow. We had two guests - Carlos Vega from Wells Fargo Bank and Darrel Menthe, although he was only considered a guest for part of the meeting since he became a member at approximately 12:45 on Wednesday.
After a little time set aside for our meal, President Joel brought up Don Trepany who summoned Darrel Menthe and his sponsor Wendy Taylor to the podium for Darrel’s induction into the Club. Welcome to the Club Darrel – it is great to have you as a new member! By the way, The Book is at Darrel’s office which is located at 9696 Culver Blvd., Suite 301, Culver City, CA 90232. Please stop by and see his office.
Linda Forman will be sending out statements but it is very important to settle up any outstanding bills from last year so that the 2013-2014 books can be closed out.
President Joel spent a little time talking about some of our upcoming projects and events and it sounds like this will be another busy year. Right around the corner is the Club Assembly which will be held at the Chabola residence on Sunday, August 3rd. Later this month we will be involved in the Fiesta La Ballona – stay tuned for more information.
Kate Rosloff was our speaker for the day and she gave a polished and thoughtful presentation about the benefits of being a volunteer.
Remember – the meeting for this week is in the evening. Come to the Culver Hotel at 6:00 PM.
