Well, we did it! We made it through the Rotary Year without causing much damage to our Club, Rotary International, and the community at large! I actually think we might have even helped a few people along the way!
The meeting of the Rotary Club of Santa Barbara was opened with an invocation by Dan Aldrich. Since our song leaders were AWOL we were “treated” to rounds of Row Row Row Your Boat by President Chris. The Pledge of Allegiance was lead by honorary SBC Rotarian Kirk Greene.
I hope you enjoyed Bill Dedman’s program about the Clark Estate and his book Empty Mansions. We had 120+ people in attendance and it was great to see the Rotary room so full again! A big thank you to Charlie Mitchell for making that program happen!
