Good crowd out to Rotary today, including guests and visitors. June Bywater came as a gust of Brad Barber and is interested in becoming a member of the club.
Sergeant at Arms Barber took a moment to bring members up to speed about his manner of keeping a high level of decorum at meetings. A couple of fines ensued but the best is yet to come...
Our program was arranged by Past President Paul Damon. He introduced Wendell Droubay who shared thoughts about patriotism.
Included in his presentation was the story of Francis Scott Key and the writing of our National Anthem, the Star Spangled Banner.
He also shared some history of the Executive Seal of the USA, including the siginificance of the colors of the seal.
RED: Heartiness and Valor
WHITE: Purity and Innocence
BLUE: Vigilence, Perserverance and Justice
It was a wonderful and moving presentation. We're grateful to Mr Droubay for taking time to share with us.
Next week there will be no noon meeting as we will met at Rotary Constitution park that evening for the Family Picnic at 6:30. Bring your family and your appetite.
In two weeks there will also be no noon meeting as it is the July 24 - Pioneer Day Holiday.
