We honored Veteran's Day on November 10th, with speaker Captain Chris Janke, US Navy! We recognized members who are vets, welcomed some special guests, celebrated birthdays, and more!
Captain Janke was honored to meet Jim Reidy, US Marine Corp Vet, Submariner Monte Herring, US Navy Vet, and all our Rotarian Veterans...
Even the grumpy ones, like Bob Sullivan! :)
 
Past President Dee Menzies Co-Chairs the Honor the Police at Thanksgiving event and let everybody know the details for this year!
Thanks to Dick Lawrence, vet of the Army National Guard Reserves, for greeting Jim Menzies, US Army & Air Force, and everybody else at the door! 
 
Ken Waltzer and Executive Secretary Savi prepare to sing each of the military anthems!
Our newest member, a transfer from Northern CA, is a vet as well, with the US Army!
 
 
 

We love having GUESTS!

It was great to have Gert Gremes, from Northern Italy, return for a visit! He sits here with Billy Howard who has been away on leave and we are so happy to have him back!

 

We had some really nice prospective members visiting, including Jalal Away, introduced by President-Elect Mitchell Kraus...

 

 

and Agnes Wang, introduced by Membership Co-Chair Roger Davis. 

 

Thank you to our Wine Fest Committee!

President Tom presented bouquets and bottles of wine to the Rotarians who worked so hard to make the Nov. 5th event a success! Among the tireless volunteers were Co-chairs Andrea Gressinger and Vicky Curtis, Suzan Allbritton, Nick Goehner, Carol & Bill Powell, and Iao Katagiri! Iao, in her typical "angel behind the scenes" way, produced the background visual aids for the event and live auction, along with taking all the event photographs!

 

 
 
FINE TIME!
 
Dick Lawrence was called upon to explain his amazing Flower Child costume that he wore at his bank on Halloween!
 
The real question is...did he buy this at the store, or find it in the back of his closet?? It was made for him!

Happy birthday, Rotarians!
We celebrated November and December birthdays, including Susan Annett, Monte McCormick, Bob Sullivan, Past President Dee Menzies, Andrea Gressinger, and Vicky Curtis!

Thank you again to our speaker, and to Deborah Williams and President Tom for arranging for him to be there!
President Tom asked member vets to stand and receive the appreciation of fellow members for their service. There was loud and boisterous applause!
