March 7, 2018 was certainly a day to remember for our Club. 
 
The person who led the way for women to be admitted as full and equal members of Rotary International, and who went on to become the first woman to hold the position of President of a Rotary Club anywhere in the world visited the Rotary Club of Beaumont to tell her story.  What a privilege it was to be with her and hear of the legal struggle that took place just a little over thirty years ago!
 
Thank you to Rebekah Maxwell for service as Chair of the International Women's Day program, and to Becky Mason for being the impetus behind Dr. Whitlock's visit to Beaumont and for handling the necessary arrangements.  Many thanks to all the Rotarians who served on the 2018 International Women's Day committee.
 
Thank you to Paula Bothe and Four Alarm Productions for recording the event so others might enjoy it and so our members can re-visit the occasion again and again.
 
And now, welcome to the March 7, 2018 meeting of the Rotary Club of Beaumont:
