HAPPY, HAPPY THOUGHTS: Tessa Valadez is leaving us for a while to celebrate her wedding vows. She will be missed. The average age of the Club just went up significantly.

President Alex called the meeting to order about 5 minutes past noon.  Mary Ellen gave an excellent invocation based on some of those suggested for Rotary.  President Alex then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Considering the peaceful, pleasant “Great American Political Season,” Paul led us in singing “God Bless America.” (Thanks to the La Posta staff, right,  for great meals and support!)

President Alex called the meeting to order at 12:10 pm.  Mary Ellen gave the invocation.  President Alex then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  One of John Pickett’s imaginary friends prompted him to lead us in singing “God Bless America.”  The Sergeant at Arms Master Enforcer informed us that the mystery greeter was Dr. John Hernandez.  President Alex introduced our guests.  Patty discussed the Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) program.  Our Club was one of three in the District last year to achieve this distinction.  Each member is encouraged to buy at least one of the EREY Cruise raffle tickets.  All funds are returned to Rotary International and District service projects after a period of investment of three years.  Lya put in $68 in celebration of Jay’s thirty-ninth birthday.

President Alex called the meeting to order at 12:05 p.m.  Mary Ellen gave the invocation.  President Alex then led us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Paul led us in singing “O Canada!” in honor of our Rotary Friendship Exchange visitors from British Columbia.  Paul sang in French, the rest of us including the Canadians hobbled along in English.  President Alex introduced visiting Rotarians and Guests.  Jim Maxon introduced the Rotary Friendship Exchange visitors.  There were three visitors with their spouses from three different Clubs in the Eastern parts of Washington  and British Columbia, Canada.  The Clubs represented were the Pasco-Kennewick Rotary Club, the Golden Rotary Club, the Rotary Club of Nelson Daybreak and the Cranbrook Sunshine Rotary Club.  Each of the members described their clubs, community and their experience with the Friendship Exchange.  The Clubs are in Rotary District 5080 which includes parts of Washington in the US and BC in Canada.  Banners were exchanged.  Harold Horsfall from the Nelson Club told us that the Club was established in 1922 (a year earlier than our Club).  Jim Maxon reminded us of the social at the Pecan Grill at 5:30 today.

President Alex Keatts called the meeting to order. Jim Parks’s invocation guided our thinking to those affected by Brussels events, to those in the military looking after our security, and to Rotarians everywhere.  After President Alex led the Pledge of Allegiance, Earl Phillips hopefully  led us in “Singin’ in the Rain.”  The meet and greet found Tessa Valadez was the mystery greeter.
