Julia Shih, Shel Capeloto and their committee did a superb job with the Teachers of Excellence Program. I especially like the videos of the teacher in the classroom with their students.
After President Kathy opened the meeting, we were led in a rousing version of "The Star-Spangled Banner" (in the correct key) by Mark Smutny and Ross Jutsom. Past President Rob Fisher provided an insightful invocation about teachers, noting the complexities that they face in managing for a period of 9 months a class full of students with diverse interests and personalities, and noting the inspiration that teachers provide to their students.
District Governor Randy Pote again honored our club with a "large" trophy for bringing in the most new members. Thanks to Howard Raff, Jeanett Cordon and all our members who have been so active in bringing in new Rotarians. On a side note, have any of you seen poor Vicki Laidig, who has to haul all these trophies up from the storage in the basement to put them on display? We only make her do it when Randy is coming to one of our meetings!
