Mark Hoffman served on the 2011-2012 Grand Jury, so his depth of experience went from the early 2000's through today.  He knew which topics had been buried, which had made profound differences in the way Marin County conducted business, and which needed to be re-visited.  By the time he had finished, the wealth of information about Grand Jury services made those of us in attendance (and it was a good crowd) all proud of our volunteers and even may have inspired one or two to seek Grand Jury service next year.
Many thanks to guest and potential new member  Sandi Luna for the close-ups of Mark.
President Carola has set the bar pretty high for her year in terms of the Club Goals she has set with Rotary International:
 
GOALS…30 members  (current 22)
10 new members  (In other words, don't lose more than 2 to get 30 at end of year)
3 people participating in Rotarian Action Groups
5 people in participating in Leadership Development at the district level
10 attending the district conference
3 in Rotary Fellowships (already there)
8 in District Training
Jim Carriere sent the following announcement to Susan Lundy (and other Shelterbox supporters) as a personal email.  Susan Lundy thinks it needs more publicity!!!
 
I wanted to announce that there is a new way to support ShelterBox. Sno Road Winery in Echo, OR is now producing a 2013 "In Tents" Cabernet at $38/bottle + S/H. Pictures are attached.
 
This is the normal price for many of their wines and all profit from these sales is being donated to ShelterBox. The owners are only recouping their production and bottling costs. I can tell you that the sale of each case will sponsor a Shelter Kit like the ones we are currently distributing in Syria and Iraq.
 
Want to purchase? Call the winery direct at 541-376-0421. Have your credit card ready, tell them you want the ShelterBox In Tents Cabernet, and Lois will take it from there.
 
DG Ron Gin made at least five of us cry, which means half the women in attendance were teary eyed.  This is definitely not a great idea of we have to leave for business meetings all day; really messes up the eye liner!   What did he say or do???  He had a lot of inspiration courtesy of Gene Roddenberry and George Lucas, and closed with a video of our work and efforts (both RI and Harbor) to the tune of "You Raise Me Up".  Nice job, Ron.    Since we have been inspired by other DGs, particularly our own John Bottari, you are not "boldly going where no man has gone before" but you certainly can truly claim that the force (of 5150 and Harbor) is with you.
 
MELISSA PRANDI DISCUSSES MEMBERSHIP RECRUITMENT AND RETENTION
 
While crediting three years of  our own Helen Abe's guidance as District 5150 Membership leadership, Melissa is handling her second year as Chair, hopefully again showing district membership growth,  Her ideas were inspiring...mentoring new members, writing 3 names and giving them to our President, and working with the new Rotary theme to get new members involved quickly and efficiently.  Thanks, Melissa!
President Carola Detrick presents our Speaker's gift to Allen Ng in appreciation of his appearance July 20th, 2017.
Today we welcomed Stan Green, retired Independent Registered Investment Advisor, into our Club.  Stan has been very active in the volunteer community in Marin, having worked with CVNL (both as Board member and Volunteer Matchmaker), with  St Vincent de Paul in kitchen food preparation, with COM in their financial literacy program, Marin County FAST team in their financial elder abuse program, and with Carola's MoM program.  All in all...a valuable new member.  He is also interested in international projects (heads-up, Karen!).   Welcome, Stan.
 
 
Lauren Vuong, mother, attorney, and rescued Vietnamese "boat child" spoke to our Club about her quest to find and film the men who rescued her 30 fellow children and 31 adults when they were stranded in the ocean, almost out of fuel, food, water, and near death.  She wants to produce a short documentary about Compassion and Gratitude.  Her story was compelling and emotionally charged; a very good breakfast meeting.
