Ralph Simpson worked in the computer industry for 32 years, at IBM and Cisco Systems. He is now retired and is a volunteer at a local history museum. He is also an avid collector of cipher machines, which you can see on his website at CipherMachines.com. Ralph presented us the history and technology of Enigma Cipher machines.
Some highlights included learning the importance of Cipher machines after radios came into play in WWI, the intricate nature of their functions, the history of their development including many of those involved with their invention and the subterfuge involved in ensuring that the Germans never learned that the Allies had the ability to crack the code
Ralph had one of these rare machines on hand and demonstrated it's complex functioning, many in attendance had a chance to try their hand it at after the meeting.
Frank Tsui was Sargent at Arms
Pledge of Allegiance was led by Maureen Chen
Inspiration was by Jo Lucey. She provided us an interesting quote and insight from Vincent Van Goh giving us a little valentine's day theme. Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.
Visiting Rotarians: Birsen Gokyigit is from Istanbul-Yeşilköy Rotary Club.

President's Corner: President Judy took this opportunity to thank a number of members of the club including the club service team for the special Valentines day theme. She thanked the Crab Feed team let by Jeanne and Dana for the excellent Crab feed- great food, great fellowship and excellent fundraising. The publicity team really kicked it into high gear this year as it was a total sellout. President Judy also thanked everyone for turning out for the Orange Harvest at the last minute where 25 rotarians picked over 4500 lbs of oranges for local food banks.
If you would like to be on President Judy Wilson's Weekly Agenda please contact Jerra Rowland by the Sunday night before the meeting. Please email her at email@example.com

This is particularly important for club chairs who want to announce meetings, accomplishments, or details that are better covered with more than a one minute verbal overview. Send Jerra bullet points and she will do the rest.
