As we honored Jan Sanders for her years of dedicated service as Director of Libraries and Information Services for the City of Pasadena, I could not help but think about her legacy and those of others that make up the membership of our great Club. And so, I thought I would take this opportunity to share some history with you about your City and Pasadena Rotary Club.
Phyllis Currie, accompanied by Ross Jutsum, led us in singing "What a Wonderful World," followed by "God Bless America." Everyone was in fine voice and good spirits! Norma Mardelli gave the invocation. She began by thanking every one of the Pasadena Rotarians for showing genuine hospitality and friendship from the first day she met us. She then urged us to take a few minutes every morning to think about how very fortunate we are and how much we have to be thankful for. Amen!
Finally, the moment I had been waiting for as your President. I was so excited about the prospect of inducting Terry Masango into the Rotary family that I could barely contain myself. Captain Terry Masango is the new corps officer and pastor of The Salvation Army Pasadena Tabernacle. He and his wife moved to the United States about 16 years ago, from Zimbabwe. They have dedicated their lives to the concept of service above self. They live the Four Way Test.
