Flying Through The Gut-Wrenching Hurricane
Dr. Lucrezia Ricciardulli, Scientist
Remote Sensing Systems –
Don’t miss this fascinating presentation as Dr. Lucrezia Ricciardulli takes us flying through the gut-wrenching Hurricane Dorian (seven times) as the monster storm pummeled the Bahamas with 185-mph winds on August 28th. Dr. Lucrezia Ricciardulli, a scientist who specializes in the satellite measurement of ocean conditions, relished the chance to go inside one of the planet’s most powerful and destructive weather events.

Nour Maxwell was running the show today. $82.00 in the pot. Jeff Kolin’s number was drawn….and he won! He gave half his winnings to Polio Plus!
Robby Fouts contracted a shingles-like infection, so he will be out for a bit.
WILL HAYMAKER! Will has been a very active volunteer and member of our club since he joined in 1985. He served as president 2002-2003 (Michael Moore served as president of Santa Rosa Sunrise that same year). He and Joann are moving to the South Bay to be near their son and family. We are going to miss him! Maybe he will scout out a Rotary club down there. If so, they will be lucky to have him.
Birthdays for January, February and March:
Somehow, we have missed celebrating birthdays? President Cathy had all Rotarians with recent birthdays get up so we could sing to them. She had the current Rotary theme “The World Unites Us” pin for each one as a present!
Socials are on the Calendar for March 19th at Los Molcajetes and April 16th at Kunde. Flyers were on the tables and will be on the Facebook pages and in the newsletter. RSVP to Kathy Schwartz. Ted Wilmsen is still looking for stray dictionaries. Plus reminding all that they can buy dictionaries for $10.00.
Will Haymaker is in a fining Mood (these past presidents sure know how to fine members!)
Michael Moore was fined for talking too much when he does the raffle. Kathy Schwartz was fined for being too darn nice. Fred was fined for coming to the club as a guest of Will’s and not wife Jeanne. Pete Lescure was fined and so was Robert Pierce.

Ray asked for volunteers to cover various positions for Giro Bello. Bill, Kim, Charlie, Julia and Bill raised their hand to help. Thank you, Rotarians for stepping up and volunteering!
*Secretary of State for Sponsorships = Bill Rousseau: The job is data input into Excel and working with Outlook for email to the sponsors.
*Beer Meister = Kim Murphy: Lagunitas can’t help us anymore with beer. We need 8 kegs and 8 cases of beer from a local brewery or two.

*Demolition Woman = Julia Parranto: Supervise the take down of the expo
*Super Dooper Pooper Trouper = Bill Hatcher: Communicate with the Port-o-potty vendor for pickup and delivery to all locations.
Giro Bello Marketing overseer Matthew Henry said we now have links added to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages. He asked us to “like” them all and “share” and new content. If you go to sport shops, bike shops or gyms, please bring by flyers. Post the signs on lawns or in businesses.
