I hope none of you feel I am being rude to our speakers when I stop them. I've warned them their time is up at 1:25 and if they wish to have time for questions they need to stop earlier. So they know in advance that when I stand up next to them they are out of time. We are so fortunate to have such great presenters, my duty is to run the meeting on time.
After Eric Olson led us in singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" and Kevin Moore read inspirational words from Mother Theresa as the invocation, Ken Stickney changed how the guests were introduced. Wandering around the room with microphone in hand, he had the Rotarian who brought the guest introduce the guest. As a result we learned a little bit about each. Howard Raff, of course, brought the most guests.
I forgot the Introduction of Guests & Visiting Rotarians. Luckily numerous members in the room yelled out a reminder. Likely this won't be the only flub.
It was great seeing Ed Svitak back. I warned him we were passing get well cards for him and to not peek. I hear the R2R he hosted Monday night at the Pasadena Hilton, where he is director of sales and marketing, was a great success.
Congratulations to Ed Moriarty who has been a member of Pasadena Rotary for two years as of August 14th".
