I would like to take this opportunity to recognize someone I consider to be an exceptional Pasadena Rotarian. She joined our Club about three years after I did - in 2008. And yet, I marvel at all she has accomplished in such a short time. When I looked for leadership to help me during my term, she was the first person I turned to. Notwithstanding the fact that she had served as a Coordinating Chair in the past, she graciously agreed to help me and assume the role once more.
Eric Olson led us in song, accompanied by Ross Jutsum on the piano. In honor of our speaker, who is from Jamaica, we sang "Jamaica Farewell". Then Eric told us that even though most of us only thought there were four patriotic songs, we would recognize the one he chose - Columbia, Gem of the Ocean. Phyllis Mueller gave the invocation, starting with No Man is an Island by John Donne.
I realize it has been only two weeks since I became your President. With that said, I think it is high time that we had some fun together. As luck would have it, we have two events coming up in the next few weeks that will give you the opportunity to throw away the stress of work and embrace the lightness of a summer evening's breeze. So change into something comfortable, come on over, enjoy some great food and drink and share the friendship of others. Laugh and play to your heart's content!
