FOR THOSE ROTARIANS WHO MISSED THE MEETING ON TUESDAY, OCTOBER 21, 2014
Sebastian, (“Seba”) Carmargo, our Foreign Exchange Student, was the highlight of our Program at Tuesday’s meeting. Seba took us on a tour of his homeland, Argentina, in South America, via a Power-Point presentation, assisted by Steve Sehnert. We learned many interesting facts about Argentina and it is evident that Seba is very proud of his home country, Argentina. Thank you Seba for your educational, entertaining and informative Program on your country.
Thank you to our Greeters, Cheryl Krumrie and PJ Wharton. PJ also introduced our guests and
visiting Rotarians. Thank you Cheryl and PJ. Geneva Taylor gave us our Thought for the Day – very
thoughtful comments on our National Anthem – “The Star Spangled Banner,” followed by the playing of:
“The Star Spangled Banner.” Thank you, Geneva; we should, on occasion, take time to think about those things that pertain so deeply to our history.
We took a moment of Silent Reflection for fellow Rotarian, Michael Roberts, who was severally injured in a fall while hiking in Summit County. Our thoughts and prayers are with Mike and his Family, for Mike’s complete and speedy recovery. We also had a card for everyone to sign sending well-wishes to Mike. Please no visitors or phone calls yet. You will; be informed when Mike can have visitors and telephone calls.
Coleman Cook is stepping up to organize the shrub and tree planting project at the Rotary Peace Pavilion at 9:30 am on Saturday morning. Volunteers bearing shovels, gloves, watering cans, and buckets are needed to get the planting done before the snow flies.
Jenny Wall distributed more Peace Pavilion shirts. If you ordered a Peace Pavilion shirt and have not received it, please contact Jenny.
Gillian Morris reminded us that the 4-Way Test in the Strawberry Park Middle School is in the morning, on Tuesday, November 4, 2014. No Noon meeting that day.
Jim read a card from District Governor, Phil Murphy and his wife, Sara, thanking the Club for all its hospitality during their visit the preceding week and DG, Phil had high praise for our Club.
PJ Wharton handled the honors for Paige Eivens, as our Student of the Month. Paige, from Steamboat Mountain School, (formerly the Whiteman School), was accompanied by her parents, sister, teacher, administrator and friends. Paige made some very gracious comments on being recipient of this award.
