Stories
In the Beginning…
As the clock ticked to 12:15 pm, President Jorg rang the bell, eventually got everyone’s attention and asked Bob Caro– who was actually attending his third meeting in a row! – to lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. This Marine did an admirable job! Larry Harrison followed up with two “Thoughts for the Day.” One from Winston Churchill: “From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however makes a life.” 
A special welcome back was extended to member Peter Fulchiron, accompanied by his wife of almost 50 years, Cindyand his two sons, Corey and Richard (who flew in from London for a visit.) Peter thanked Club members for “all you have done to support me and my family, and all you continue to do.”
In the Beginning  ~~~~~~
President Jorg rang the bell to start the meeting. Larry Harrison led us in the Pledge of Allegiance and George  Estes presented the “Thought for the Day” with a nice prayer.
Visitors & Guests ~~~~~~
The only visiting Rotarian was Dean Moser from  the Ignacio Club. Guests of Rotarians: Alan Dunham introduced past Club member - Mark Sander; Jim Spilman introduced the love of his life – Diane; Don Violin introduced his darling wife – Gloria; and last but not least Camie Studley introduced her caregiver – Joy.
Changes in Rotary ~~~~~~
President Jorg started the meeting by emphasizing the world is changing around us, and Rotary has changed it’s rules to make it easier to fit Rotary into member’s lives. Rotary Clubs in our District are taking advantage of this new freedom since many new and existing members are often having hard time following strict attendance rules.
In order to be fit for the future, the Club Board has had intense discussions regarding several changes to our Club. The details are in the handout which will be provided to members at the end of the meeting. Next week, the Club will have detailed discussions about these changes. 
Party Tiger Frank Bruno led the pledge while Jim Spilman offered a prayer for our leaders and a special thought for Noehemi upon the loss of her husband, Jerry. President Jorge also offered up a minute of silence for Nohemi and her loss.
 
Visiting Rotarian Nathan Cobert from Terra Linda.  Nathan was at the meeting to pitch Terra Linda’s crab feed, February 16th, $65 per person
