We met this week at the new Rotary Interpretive Centre at the Doubleday Arboretum.  As our club had donated $250 000 plus over 9900 hours of labour on this project, we wanted to experience a meeting inside this unique building.  President Wayne shared information from the executive meeting held last week, and announced that Judi Piccolo was reaffirmed as an honorary member of the club.  Funding requests have been forwarded to our new funding committee for recommendations to the executive.
     Plans are well underway for Ribfest, and members are encouraged to sign up to volunteer.  With no speaker for the evening, Wayne decided to play Name That Tune and provided the music.
     We went back in time as Wayne played parts of several songs and club members attempted to first name the songs and artists, and then arrange the tunes by year and tell which had remained #! on the Billboard music charts the longest.  Who knew that It's All in the Game (Tommy Edwards) and Purple People Eater (Sheb Wooley) each remained at #1 for six weeks in 1958, or that Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White (Perez Prado) was #1 longer than Rock Around the Clock (Bill Haley) ten weeks to eight in 1955?
