> She is promising us an exciting year with much more Hands On Projects and more Socials, plus a call to “Be Present”. ( see below for more information). She reminded us that we already have had one Hands on Project (Feed the Needy) and one Social already (July 4th at PP John Newhouse's home). Meals on Wheels will continue as will many more Activities aimed at Hands On involvement.
> Honored guests included the incoming presidents of the other Group 4 clubs, Mike Murphy of Thousand Oaks, Dapper Spar of Westlake Village Noon, Robert Weiser of Newbury Park and Denise Vivero of Conejo Vally, as well as Assistant Governor Carol Freeman. She also recognized our Rotarian of the Year, Marilyn Lippiatt, and our Rookie of the Year, Ben Pace.
> IPP Greg Patterson, aka Greg the III, did a wonderful Invocation focusing on both Thankfulness and an Invitation to live and work within the framework of Rotary's ideals. The Song chosen was most appropriately called " I can see Clearly Now". It was lead by Nancy and sung so so by an early crowd "a Capella" since no Audio Visual volunteer has stepped forward yet. Dr. Mike captured the evidence with his camera. When all else fails we always have "Row, row row your boat"!
> Nancy gave us some background on herself. She is a long time Rotarian having brought in such notables as PP Greg Taylor and FP Marilyn Lippiatt. She temporarily left our club some 12 years ago to be the first President of the the former Agoura Hills-Oak Park club. Originally from New Jersey, she is the daughter of a Rotarian having lost her New Joysey accent at Villanova and later UCLA. Her dad was both an English Teacher and a golf coach thus explaining her love of “colorful” language and the game of golf. She was an Oncology Nurse for most of her career but is now retired. During the meeting she inadvertently referred to us as "Patients" vs "Members". She is still very active in Rotary ( duh) and spends most of her free time raising and showing her prize Dogs plus is an accomplished musician and singer. I am sure we can team her up with our Comedian member Jon Morse, Esq. for a Fund raiser.
> Nancy's theme is: Heal the Past, Live the Present, and Dream the Future. She wants our Club to be the number one Mid Size Club in the District therefore our membership drive must stop at 30 net new members to stay Mid Size. Watch out Thousand Oaks, here we come. I am sure when DG Jim Bell arrives in August she will have trained us all to sing.
> She asked us to reflect on a quote that from the famous golfer, Bobby Jones. " Golf is the closest game to the game we call Life. You get bad breaks from good shots and good breaks from bad shots, but you have to play the ball from where it lies". The meeting ended 10 minutes early with most members hanging around to enjoy the social time plus discussing the various projects and committees at hand. Next week her Board will out line their function and goals for this upcoming year.
