            Back to sandwiches and salads and the hum and buzz of Rotarians meeting and greeting.  Her Honor President Gayle opened the meeting on time as usual.  Bob Peterson led us in a thoughtful invocation and the Pledge of Alliance was led by Don Anderson.  Meeting set up included the usual suspects: Duncan Cook, Ward Fletcher, Bob Hammar, Rob Erb, Troy Wilcox, and Terry Roarke; Ward Fletcher did double duty on the Paul Harris table where $414 was collected; Chuck Hellar sold raffle ticket sales and was Sergeant at Arms; Paula Olson was bulletin writer. Troy Wilcox was the photographer. The auction table was womaned by Christine Vu, Anne Enquist, Kendra Riconosciuto, Jan Gee, and Sally Smith.   
      Today is the meeting. Tomorrow is the day!!  Have you ever had a birthday, holiday, reunion or anniversary that you couldn't wait to have arrive?  Amazingly, this sounds just like the expectation folks have for the Lakewood Rotary Sportsman's Annual Dinner.  And, yes, we have waited patiently and Tomorrow is the Day!  All procurements are in. The guests are registered. The planning is complete and the members stand ready to energize McGavick Center as it has never been done before!  So get ready. One more day to go!!
            It was pot roast day at the TG&CC and the Lakewood Rotary room was packed.  Her Honor President Gayle opened the meeting on time as usual.  Chris Kimball led us in a thoughtful invocation and the Pledge of Alliance was totally off the charts.  Who knew that Joe Quinn had such an awesome, booming voice? He led us in a rousing rendition of a medley of patriotic favorites, including the National Anthem and the Canadian Anthem.  Good use of protein infusion.   
    With Past President Chris Kimball presiding, we of Rotary knew that Gayle couldn't have been prouder.
