On June 24 a great time was had by all attendees at the Lions Community Building as President #41, Dr. Rotz, stepped down and Pat Kistler was installed as our club's 42nd President. In his final address as President, Dr. Rotz expressed appreciation and thanks for the opportunity to serve. As per tradition the club "honored" the outgoing president with a friendly roast. One highlight of the roast was the recitation of poetry by member Meredith McCurdy. Presidnet Pat's first official act after her installation was to create a new position in club service aptly titled "Poetress" and recognized Meredith as our first Club Poetress for her playful prose shared periodically over the years. Meredith's wit, which the club attempted to sing to Dr. Rotz, was set to the tune of Rockin' Robin and is shared below.

 

Rockin Roland

 

Music by: Leon Rene                                      

Words by: Meredith McCurdy

 

 

He works in his office all the day long

Listens to the raving analyzes what’s wrong

He’s poised at the window leaps from the sill

Fly’s to the aid of the mentally ill

Rockin’ Roland – Psych, Super Psych

Rockin’ Roland – Psych, Super Psych

Go Rockin’ Roland cuz you’re really gonna ease my mind

 

Every little sadist every schizophrain

Every little pervert with a problem brain

The addled addict – the paranoid

Those about to make a jump into the void

Rockin’ Roland – Psych, Super psych

Rockin’ Roland – Psych, Super Psych

Go Rockin’ Roland cuz you’re really gonna ease their mind

 

The pretty exhibitionist – delusions grandeur

Those who are conductors of a silent band

Masochist – depressive meet your match

Roland keeps your life out of the booby hatch

 

He works in his office all the day long

Listens to the raving analyzes what’s wrong

He’s poised at the window leaps from the sill

Fly’s to the aid of the mentally ill

Rockin’ Roland – Psych, Super Psych

Rockin’ Roland – Psych, Super Psych

Go Rockin’ Roland cuz you’re really gonna ease my mind
