Editarian Report for August 5, 2022
On this overcast mid-summer’s day Lansing Rotarians gathered to converse, enjoyed Pulled Pork, Potato Salad, Cole Slaw, and Mac &Cheese from Saddle Back BBQ. Conversations centered on luck with today’s weather, Jazz Fest, Blues Fest, and recent vacations as we were entertained by Sam Warren strumming his guitar.
A bit of stir arose from our resident rabble rouser Kevin Schumacher in a spirited declaration that Carolina style is better than Kanas City style barbeque sauce, Kevin’s tactic to stir this debate went over like an offering of Potato Salad that had been sitting in the sun for six hours. With that the debate ended with an agree to disagree resolution, Rotarians rose to enjoy the rest of their day.
