Annual Trivia Challenge!

President Cathy Vicini

Bring your ringers because this trivia will be a challenge. Last week President Cathy warned you what might happen so if you forgot you will soon find out.

Unlike last year where she got the questions out of farmer’s almanac, this time you are all in jeopardy.

Opening Ceremonies:

Pledge:  Fred Levin
Reflection:  Vickie Hardcastle on the origin of Valentine’s Day and a few quotes on the day


Tasia Henderson, a Rotaract Alumnae from SSU


Doug Johnson said we are starting over with $27.00 in the pot and 10 marbles.  Matthew Henry’s number was pulled.  He said, “It is because I am sitting next to Ted.”  Not enough luck; a yellow marble.

Joke of the Day:

An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman were standing looking at a prize cow in a field.
The Englishman says, “Look at that fine English cow.”
The Irishman disagreed, saying “No, it’s an Irish cow.”
The Scotsman thought for a moment and then clinched the argument. “No, it’s a Scottish cow – it’s got bagpipes underneath.”


Debi Zaft let us know that Kim Graves daughter had a baby girl.  Her name is Rose.

Jack Abercrombie was visiting today (so good to see him!).  He and Pris are moving to Manteca to be closer to family.  We already miss him!

Ray Giampaoli says we are up to 76 riders and $6800 in sponsorships. If you haven’t gotten a sponsor package yet, see him for one.  The club would like each member to find on a $500.00 sponsor.

Pete Lescure is passing around the clip board for fellowship sign ups.

Let the Rotary Games Begin!

President Cathy reminded us that Trivia is next week, but she is going to shake it up!  Ooooooh!

ALSO starting next week, and continuing for 6 weeks, you will be given a playing card at each meeting.  DON’T LOOSE YOUR CARDS! The at the end of the 6 weeks whoever has the best poker hand wins a prize! (And it will be a nice one)
