     The last Friday in November means that December is right around the corner and all faithful Rotarians must find their antlers and red noses to get ready to bring on the Christmas cheer.  Or not, as you are inclined. 
President Gayle opened the meeting with her usual regal air. She called on Mr. Bob Hammar (he of the two “m “and two “a” fame) to deliver an invocation, or as is now the vogue, a “thought for the day." Thankfully Mr. Hammar mentioned Pearl Harbor and the tragic events that took place there 77 years ago.

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…"

As the autumn leaves painted the sky, and the clouds meandered about, Lakewood Rotarians gathered and laughed, again. President Gayle Selden rang the bell to order in a timely manner and ensured we paid attention to all of the  minute details.
