VISITING ROTARIANS & GUESTS

 

President Dave introduced the members and guests at his table and then asked Glenn Pulliam, Steve Plume, Jim Patterson and Mike Wacker to introduce the members and guests at their tables.  There were many wives and guests.  Too many to name here.

 

Student Store

In an effort to get school supplies to the students affected by the Camp Fire, a "store" was set up in the Chico Mall to serve the Paradise Intermediate and High School students. The students will be attending classes in the mall until other arrangements can be made. Students will be able to come into the "store" and get school supplies, free of charge. 

Chico Rotary staffed the store on the last Monday and Durham Rotarians staffed the store on Tuesday Dec 4th. There were 2 shifts, 8-11 and 11-2.  Glenn Pulliam recruited members to staff the store on Tuesday.  See part of the crew below:

 

Mike Wacker also presented an update on the Student Supplies Project.  At the above store more than 850 backpacks were delivered to students.  Over 1200 backpacks were delivered to elementary students.  Jen and I found out that we could not get an adobe acrobat copy of this updated report in the Rowel, so I am going to ask Jen to email it to all members when he notifies them of the publication of this Rowel.

PROGRAM

 

It was the Club Christmas Party presented by Mike Wacker..

 

We had a delicious dinner.  And there was dessert.

 

The Durham High School Jazz Band again played for us, even though they had only been back to school for 2 days.  They did fine.

 

Following that Larry Bradley led us in singing Christmas Carols.

 

Then came Jan Ellis’ Gift Exchange with a lot of stealing of gifts and fun.

 

The rest is in the pictures below:
