President Tracy welcomed everyone to the Friendly El Cerrito Rotary Club. Mark S led the flag salute and Charlie provide the thought for the day.
Substitute Secretary Michael C: Introduced Albany Rotarians Bob Langbean and Richmond Rotarian Judith Cafca. Paul’s guest today was Lt Steve B who head up the Patrol Div of ECPD.
4-Way Test Presentation: Paul led us in reciting the 4-Way Test
Happy dollars: Michael C is $5 happy about the Chinese New Year. Jane is $5 happy that she has fought off the bronchitis so she can MC the Richmond Chamber crab feed.
Special Recognition: Tracy present member-elect Jim Sheppard with a nice plant to take to his wife. The recognition is for the couples newborn twins.
Nobuko announced the selling of the great candy she gets from a special source. Looked like she was doing a pretty good business. The club gets a portion of the proceeds on these sales.
Sgt at Arms Nancy: Not on duty today
Charlie introduced Karen Street a member of the Berkeley Friends organization. She came to us today to present a program on promoting nuclear energy as a way to increase our electric power production and at the same time cut the amount of carbon dioxide that is produced by natural gas and coal fired power plants.
(Editor note: I apologize for no photo of Karen. The picture I took was very blurry, just like the person holding the camera.)
Today’s Lottery Winner: Nancy had her ticket drawn and pulled the golden marble for the $175 pot and the bottle of wine. Next meeting the pot is $50. There were a number of Valentine flowers given out from the raffle tickets this week.
Thought for the Week:
Oh, what a blamed uncertain thing
This pesky weather is;
It blew and snew and then it thew,
And now, by jing, it's friz!
