              Since President Selden was still wandering around the world, Past President Ron Irwin subbed. The meeting was somber, without much of the usual silliness, and began in a little different fashion so we could honor our dearly departed Mike McGowan, who left us this past week. The invocation was a moment of silence for Mike; Lowell Johnson led us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Duncan, Bob and Rob did the set-up; Kendra Riconosciuto staffed the Paul Harris table where a total of $1219 was collected and a $50 advance on next week’s collection; Chuck Hellar did double duty as the raffle ticket sales and Sergeant at Arms; Bob Zawilski took photos; Paula Olson wrote the bulletin; and Kendra Riconosciuto officially greeted us (as well).
         The theme of our bulletin today was self-evident:  President Gayle Selden is traveling for a few weeks and various Past Presidents have stepped up to take care of President Pro Tempore duties.  But read the Lakewood Key to see how many LR Rotarians stepped up and will continue to do so. PPT John Lowney was the first to step up as will be shown below. He rang the bell right on time and got us rolling.
Clang, clang, clang went the trolley, no….wait…ding, ding, ding, went the bell (yes!) and President Gayle opened up another edition of the Lakewood Rotary Club’s weekly meeting.
Chris Kimball gave us a meaningful invocation and Barb Spriggs led the group in the pledge to the flag.
The Pledge of Allegiance, the 4 Way Test and the Scout’s Oath – all in the same meeting! If that isn’t enough to get your moral fiber recharged, I don’t know what will. Well maybe a tent revival meeting by Billy Graham, but that won’t be happening again.
