John Stover has been off gallivanting around the world but still attending Rotary meetings.  He brought flags from one from North Carolina and the other from Scotland. He said they do wear Kilts at their meetings


Mark Spencer, new member of our club and the new director of Bay View Association, introduced Daryl Shin, the President of the Campus Club. He gave us a quick over view of what the Campus Club is and does. He stated that the club is open to anyone and the dues are $15/yr or $150/lifetime. There are many activities at the club.

Then, David Kaplan, sporting a 1940’s style life vest, was a little worried about what kind of reception he was going to get so, he came prepared and he then invited us all to the History of Transportation exhibit. Bikes, Titanic and Wright Brothers Aviation

Next Week’s Program:  Dylan Valade; “Thrive 45”
