Words of Inspiration and Blessing -Jess Knauft.
Jess Knauft drew on the Hawaiian / Reggae influence of great “philosopher” Bob Marley- "Life is one big road with lots of signs. So, when you are riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake up and live!"….    
 
The New President Ruth Ann Kurihara started the morning off with music and mucho Aloha….By the way if the music dies before you’re in the room- you’re late----Braddaah!    
Those who did not hear the music; Lawrence, Jim and Tony  
They were appropriately taxed by Mr. Hovsepian. Shaken not stirred no more….Their question was to determine the new beverage of choice Mr. James Bond now enjoys………………………………  
 
Past President Rosie Riera presented Ruth with a new bat and also unveiled a new classy 4 way test banner (that won’t fall off the wall in the middle of a meeting)…

Meet The New Boss
New President Ruth gave South Bay Sun Risers a nice opening to her term as president. She told a story of how certain events and people in her life had led up to where she is today. She honored her mom and dad, noted that certain adversities lead to good fortune like meeting her husband Dwight and finally the encounter with that cranky, impatient patient – Todd Cruser - who eventually coerced her to come to a meeting at Marie Calendars. One theme communicated-what is your “dash” going to look like? The dash defined as being the time from 7/1/2015 – 6/30/2016. She asked members to make their dash count, to make a difference this Rotary year - be a gift to the world....  Thank you Ruth
