Club Meeting and Potluck  
Article by Steve Wilson
Our March 23 meeting was a potluck event, a tasty diversion from our normal Thursday bring-your-own.  President Krystlyn opened with the flag salute, then introduced guest Anne Campbell, Assistant District Governor of our District who has retired from the office of the County Superintendent of Schools.  Liz Schuck has known Anne a long time and spoke glowingly of her contributions to the education system here on the Coast.  We gave Anne a rousing welcome.  We adjourned our normal activities for a while to enjoy the potluck lunch and fellowship.
When we reconvened, we had a full agenda (no featured speaker today).  Liz announced that 11 of us were going to District Assembly this coming weekend. 
Ginger announced a happy hour music presentation this Friday from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. at Barterra Winery.
Happy/Crappy News yescrying
Bill, Joe and a bunch of others received our thanks for doing a great job of re-roofing our storage shed to prevent weather damage.  Lots of valuable work!
There were abundant happy / crappy dollars.  Doug Mallon kicked in for his purchase of a new Ford Maverick pickup which he proudly declared to be the color of Cholula Sauce, his favorite. 
Bill Johnston had been running around with a chainsaw in the back of his ride and has been busy just removing fallen trees blocking streets in his neighborhood.  More importantly, Bill and Austen will be celebrating their first anniversary this weekend.  Happy Anniversary! 
Anne Campbell announced the birth of a new granddaughter in Culver City.  Kevin shared a milestone in his life, with four of his eight grandchildren now between 20 and 24 years of age and in committed relationships.  Is Kevin approaching great-grandfatherhood?  We'll see!  
Stacy shared that she and Doug had bought a bunch of Rotary branded swag at Lindeburg and Company in San Carlos.  It's useful to know that, Stacy, and thanks. 
Barb Neilson mentioned planning for our planned lobster feed later this year and that Belmont Club is having a similar event May 6.  There was discussion about attending or even helping work the event so we could get hands-on familiarity with how best to run one. 
Susan Kealey and others participated in recent Life Skills activities at Pilarcitos HIgh and went to Warren's office afterwards to sticker our give-away dictionaries. We highlighted the fact that Charise needs help April 20 and 24 for the mock interviews at HMB High, and we'll have consistent reminders on this to assure that we have the volunteers we need.
Next week's speaker will be Prof. Jeffrey Fadiman, who champions a nonprofit supporting an elephant reserve in South Africa.  This is bound to be very interesting.
Past Pres. Joe won the marble drawing and came up with the white marble!  So we start all over again....
