HIGH GEAR

 

It’s just noon and the day is and has been breathtaking.  We woke to lovely, steady rain, then the world blossomed into glorious sunshine. We proceeded to beautiful Poplar Creek for a day of inspiration.
President Stan called the meeting to order at the stroke of 12:15.

 

We gathered at the usual place, but a day late, for a joint meeting with the San Mateo Rotary Club.  Poplar Creek was showing its green, inside and out.  The weather was glorious, the lawns lush, the Rotarians ready for a happy meeting.

Welcome, Pledge and Invocation

The most glorious day greeted us!  We are thankful. 
President Stan called the meeting to order at 12:15, and invited Peter Comaroto to lead us in the pledge of allegiance;  John Delaney delivered the invocation which is memorialized here:
We meet together in an effort to build community, to advance education and understanding. We seek the patience of one another as we strive to learn and grow and the stamina to make a difference in our communities and our Rotary Club. We express our thanks for the gifts of life and for the food of which we are about to partake. We gather here today as colleagues and friends with attention to a common goal.  That goal is the continued service to the citizens of our community through our programs and information.  We understand our responsibilities as committed Rotarians as well as learners – personally and professionally.  It is obvious that we work and live in challenging times.  We seek each other’s patience as we strive to learn and grow, and the stamina to make a difference in our club and the world. We express our thanks for an opportunity to gather together where we can reinforce our community principles of openness and engagement for all people, for the gifts of life, and for the food that has been prepared for us.  For all this, we are thankful!

 

It is said March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb!! Whatever, today was a gorgeous, bright, sun-filled day and we were happy folks as we arrived at The Candy Store to lust after gorgeous automobiles.
 
The Candy Store Clubhouse was constructed in 1928 as the Earl Anthony Packard Automobile Dealership.  This beautiful building, designed specifically to be an elegant backdrop for fabulous Packard automobiles, in what many feel was the heyday of the automobile, was restored and re-engineered for seismic stability in 1995.
 
The purpose of The Candy Store is to provide a place in which to foster camaraderie among fellow owners of historically significant automobiles, to promise the exchange of technical information, and to encourage the preservation of such automobiles.
