Dear fellow Rotarians and friends,

Thank you to Louise Johnson for filling in for Walt Stickel at Thursday’s social meeting. Walt came down with COVID last week, and we wish him a speedy recovery. Hope you’re feeling better, Walt!
Louise’s craft talk was entitled “On Any Given Day”. She walked us through a few of the joys and sorrows on any given day of her life as a teacher and a superintendent. If you didn’t catch her news, she will be teaching two courses for the OLLI program at Sierra College. Check it out at OSHER Lifelong Learning Institute. At the next social we’ll host our RYE student from Sweden, and PDG Jeff Gabriel will be joining us to present the Club of the Year trophy – don’t miss it!
On Thursday of this week, we have Gil Matthews visiting us with his insights from the Economic Resource Council. Gil is a 49er Rotarian, is a former member of our club and is looking forward to being with us. Gil says, “And I really look forward to being with the club where my whole Rotary experience began back in 1987.”  Don’t forget to RSVP for your spot at the meeting – the menu looks great!
Enjoy our changing weather, the cool mornings are perfect for a cup of coffee or tea on the deck. With Hurricane Hillary becoming a tropical storm, we may even catch a few rain drops this week. 
This Thursday, PDG Doug will be leading the meeting since I am back teaching, but I’ll see you at the socials.
Have a great week, 
Co-President Karen
Karen, Cathy and Doug
