FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE TUESDAY, APRIL 7, 2015 MEETING
Karen, (“It is all about the children”) McRight gave her Classification Talk today. One had to be awed and inspired by Karen and her husband, Rusty’s selfless dedication, generosity and above all, their love for children. Not many people would even think about doing what Karen and Rusty seem to do naturally. A great Classification Talk presentation Karen. It is a privilege to have someone of your caliber as a member of our Club.
We celebrated April Birthdays today as well: Ian Engle, David Scully, Sam Haslem, Jim Nowak, Peter Perhac, Randy Rudasics, John Centner and Todd Hayes. Happy Birthday Rotarians!
