Politics in the West
Dr. Bill Deverell is an historian specializing in the American West, California, Southern California and Los Angeles. He is the director of the Huntington-USC Institute on California and the West and is a professor of history at USC's Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Science. He is the author of the book, Whitewashed Adobe: The Rise of Los Angeles and the Remaking of its Mexican Past. Dr. Deverell's work on the history of the 19th and 20th Century West (and especially California) is widely known and respected. He brings his usual approachable style to Rotary as he discusses politics in the West, including comments from his latest publication.Note: it might be just the right time to look back at "Wild West" politics! They may seem tame by comparison....Introducer: Jan SandersInvocation: Jonathan EdewardsGuest Introductions: JP HarrisSong Leader: Catherine HanyAccompanist: Ross Jutsum

The Opportunity Zone

Happy "Friendship Day" my fellow Pasadena Rotarians!  So, let me take this opportunity to give you a little friendly advice.  If you ever feel the need to be inspired or you want to get a better understanding of what the future holds for our club, let me suggest to you that you consider visiting a Tyros meeting. My participation in our monthly Tyros lunches is one of the best perks of my role as your president.

THE SCOOT ZONE By Justene Adamec, Staff Reporter

With Ross Jutsum gone, we had to sing a cappella. Joe Henry led us in America the Beautiful.  After a rocky start, we performed admirably. Did some people confuse God Bless America with America the Beautiful?
Jim Osterling gave the invocation. In an early hint of a schedule change, he said that the invocation was chosen with Nat Read's speech in mind.

I figure when Ross Jutsum starts asking for volunteers for my Demotion, it's time for me to start working on my image. So at today's meeting, I deftly announced a new program that we will soon be launching thanks to your financial support and the spirit of good will evidenced last month by the Pasadena Rotary Club Board. And so, we offer another wonderful service opportunity for our Club.
