Nancy reminded members to fill out the Membership Satisfaction Survey. Members can log onto the club Web site with their username and password. Navigate to the Admin screen and there click on View Club Documents and a link to the survey appears.
Finemaster Steve Aspel fined President Nancy $5 for something or other; Mark Smith $20 for his photo in a local newspaper WITHOUT his Rotary pin on his coat lapel, and then $10 for his new position as V.P. of Malaga Bank; Dave Whitehead and Bill Paul $20 each for incorrectly reporting something or other Finemaster Steve uttered at last week’s luncheon; and President Nancy another $20 for calling on Monique Waite by the wrong name. Oops! Particularly since Monique wanted to donate $1 as a Happy Buck announcement.
Brynn Dietz volunteered to head our boat-building project for the upcoming District 5280 picnic, scheduled for September 9th. A cardboard boat race across the Redondo Beach Lagoon is a highlight of the afternoon activity. Our club entered a boat a couple of years ago but age and water got the best of the old tub.
Luncheon speaker Janne Kouri gave an inspirational talk. See next article titled “Janne Kouri Takes NextStep.”
Ted Wendorff’s raffle ticket was selected but alas, he did not pick the green and white marble. “Here’s ten bucks, Ted” was his consolation prize.
Nancy likes to end our luncheon meetings with three trivia questions.
