ANNOUNCEMENTS AND CLUB BUSINESS

Posted by Robert Homann on May 31, 2017
1. With Memorial Day just past, President Ed thanked all the club veterans for their service.
2. Bob Crow brought "Hellos" from Harell Miller and Steve Gable.  We still have over 6,000 recognition points and can recognize additional local people for their service to the communities. 
3. Harvey Clark brought back a trading banner from the Daytona West Rotary club and presented it to President Ed. Harvey was in Florida for family graduations.
4. Murray Hiatt described the Honor Flight Arizona he was on recently. The vets on board were WW II and Korean war veterans.  He told how he was made to feel very special - people in the airports both coming and going broke out in applause for the vets as they went by.  His group visited the major military memorials in D.C. and also Ft. McHenry in Maryland.  There were 30 guardians on the flight accompanying the vets. The trip is free to the vets but the guardians pay $900.  Murray said it is an experience he will never forget.
5. Mike Dungan brought us the News of the Day. His alma mater Oregon State U. is seeded #1 in the NCAA baseball world series.  The team record is 49-6.  LeBron James and Stephen Curry were born in the same hospital in Akron, OH three years apart.
