President Wayne encouraged us to show Rotary Connects the World by bringing in some new members.  Les Clay replied that he had one in mind.  Stay tuned.
     On behalf of the Foundation Committee, Wayne wrote the proposal for a District Grant to include three projects at Langley Community Services Society.  For the two garden areas, including building an Allan Block wall two courses high, we would provide oversight but hire someone to do the work.  For the third, we would provide the labour and invite Rotaractors to join us in preparing a ramp for painting, and then doing the actual painting.  Now we wait to see if our application is successful.
     Club members were challenged to identify a song and name the artist after hearing only the opening chord.  Veronica and Rudy were able to recognise  A Hard Day's Night by the Beatles by hearing only that iconic chord.  
     Our guest speaker was our own practising physician and past president of the club, John Brynjolfson.  John brought us all kinds of incredible facts about research findings and new developments about prostate cancer, and he feels positive about medical breakthroughs coming to make our lives better.  Words like benign prostatic hyperplasia and 5 alpha reductase inhibitor just flowed freely from his lips.  He saved the second part of his talk for another day.
