Rotary meeting began today with a departure from the norm. Chorister Brad Barber provided lyrics to a distinctly Rotary song called The Rotary Bell. A powerful chorus of Rotarians joined in to make the change quite enjoyable.

Our guests included ADG Steve Skinner, from the Logan Club, as well as Johanna and George, service dogs for Eve Jones and Paul Damon.

We dispensed with fellowship and Sergeant-at-Arms to provide ample time for our presenter.

We were pleased to hear from First District Court Judge Ben Hadfield.

Judge Ben H. Hadfield was appointed to the First District Court in March 1993 by Gov. Michael O. Leavitt. He serves Box Elder, Cache, and Rich counties.

After graduating from the J. Reuben Clark College of Law at Brigham Young University in 1978, he joined the firm of Mann, Hadfield & Thorne and later became a partner.

Judge Hadfield is a past president of the Rex E. Lee Inn of Court.

In addition to his courtroom responsibilities, he has served the courts on the Ethics Advisory Committee, on the Board of District Court Judges, and as a member of the Judicial Council.

Judge Hadfield served as presiding judge in the First District from July 2004 to July 2006.

He currently serves as a member of the Board of District Court Judges.

Judge Hadfield shared information relating to the First District court including statistics and responsibilities. He was accompanied by Law Clerk Ashley Bown.

We appreciate Judge Hadfield and Ms Bown for being with us today and providing a very informative presentation.

Next week we will hear from a representative of Proctor and Gamble, arranged for by Mayor Dennis Fife.

In two week, Garl Waldron has arranged for a representative of Honda Motor Corp to present to the group.

We continue to have exceptional presentation and programs at Rotary. You should be sure to be in attendance each week.
