A Message From Incoming President Marc:
 
Dear Fellow Burlingame Rotarians,
 
This is the first of regular messages to that I plan to write you to update you on the activities of our club.  It is my honor to become the president of our club and to work with you to make our club one of the finest Rotary clubs in the Bay Area.
 
Let’s Review What Happened Last Week:
 
We “thanked” outgoing President Mike Horwitz or is it Horowitz with a hilarious debunking revolving around President Mike trying to sell our club’s number one profit maker, the Rotary Arms Motel.  Many thanks to all involved in the debunking including our debunking producer Mark Johnson, Chuck Voltz our emcee, Rabbi Jay Miller who gave the invocation, Jerry Winges with a newscast that was particularly difficult this debunking as apparently almost all pictures of Mike were burned prior to the debunking, Dennis Zell for another creative script and, of course, the cast of our production – Lage Andersen, Cheri Delacy Carr, John Delany, Cary Koh, Marilyn Orr and in a special appearance Father Michael Mahoney.
 
 

Pledge and Invocation

President Mike called the meeting to order and requested that Sean Williams lead us in the Pledge.  That was followed by an invocation by the good Dr. Paul Nieberding.
 
Visiting Rotarians & Guests:  Visiting us from the Millbrae Club were Tom and Faye Dawdy.  Karen Malekos-Smith introduced her guest, Zelda Levin.  Zelda was proudly wearing her Paul Harris medal having been the first women to be awarded this by the San Carlos Rotary Club.  Doug Winnett brought his lovely wife Catherine.

Pledge and Invocation

Super greeting-table Rotarian, Sheryl Young, led the pledge of allegiance today.  Our walking encyclopedia maven, Michael Kimball, gave an inspiring though super extemporaneous invocation.
