This meeting was unprecedented. More accurately, un-presidented. No Courtney Milbrook. No Cathy! We were even ghosted by presidential wannabes Nick Heriford and Rebecca Bahar-Cook. Not to worry, in the absence of our popularly elected leadership, seditious chaos filled the void! With no Cathy to keep me honest, I’m going to ballpark attendance at somewhere North of 40 but less than 174, which I think is our current membership. What we lacked in quantity, we more than made up for with mirth and merriment!
This new format appears to be working well with Club members having an opportunity to work the room and learn more about each other. For instance, I learned that two of our newer members, Corey and Steve Grant, when they go on vacation, they are actually pirates! Who knew that was an option! Movies were the topic of the day at many tables with Death Wish (Charles Bronson) and Roadhouse (Nobody puts baby in a corner, I know, that quote’s from Dirty Dancing, but it really should have been in Roadhouse) were two guilty pleasure movies. Guess the Rotarians who loved those movies and win a prize of inconsequential value! Most surprising was that Craig Stiles and the undersigned both tear up when watching The Way with Martin Sheen.
We just wouldn’t have moments like that on a Friday. I didn’t see Pat Hanes or Steve Robinson there, but am really thinking one or both of them need to bring his guitar to one of these. Anywho, a good time was had by all.
