Our Rotary Meeting Tomorrow, Monday, July 21, 2024 is 6PM at Ski Beach!

      This is a structured pot luck, so bring Mexican food to share.  If you don't feel like cooking you could order take out from a Mexican restaurant.  We are honoring fellow Rotarian, outgoing Judge E. Alan Tiras and other people found out about it and want to come and recognize him too.  Other Rotarians will be coming and attorneys and members of the community.  Rookies is setting up a Modelo beer stand to honor him.  Otherwise bring the beverage of your choice and some to share.  There could be a lot of people so beach chairs could be a good idea.  Utensils, plates and tablecloths will be provided by our club.  Come early if you want to talk to Judge Tiras or play Bocce ball.

Full Report on our Last Club Meeting
     Co-Presidents Bridget and Judy led a fun, action-packed, meaningful meeting which 19 people attended. Many members participated in different segments of the meeting and Micheline Thompson and Elena Popova were inducted as the newest members of our club.
     Claudia Anderson told us about all the facets of the Parasol Foundation including purchasing fire lookout cameras for the Tahoe Basin.  Jon Smith explained our Club's own Foundation and later paid $70 to the Endowment Fund to win the auction for a box of See's Candy he then gave to his wife for their anniversary.
     Neal Riemer won the Raffle but did not pick the purple chip out of the bag so the pot is over $300 next time with only 6 chips left!  Many members were recognized for birthdays, anniversaries and happy moments and gave money to the Club's operating account.
     Judy played her theme song "Hey Jude" and talked about overcoming hardships in her life and "making it better."  She even played "When the Saints Come Marching In" on her clarinet.
     The lunch was delicious with two types of Quiche, salad, brownies and lemon cake.
     Hope to see you at the next meeting!
