While the cooks were working on dinner, the meeting was called to order by Eric Hoiland at the park.
He asked your editor, to lead the pledge, which I did. He then asked Jim Patterson to present the invocation, which he did.
By the way, when you take photographs under a roof, with the background bright because it is not under the roof, they do not come out very well. All the photos in this Rowel have been substantially manipulated to improve them. But they are still not all that good.
After that he asked Larry Bradley to lead us in a song. He led us in singing The National Anthem.
K. R. Robertson is in the hospital. Sue Jessen is currently in her 3rd round of chemotherapy. She is feeling good and doing well.
Introduction of Visitors.
Too many people for individual introductions so President Eric asked all Rotarians to raise their hands. Then all student followed by all the parents.
None tonight. I guess I get a free ride for my two weeks in Mexico. Ha! Ha!
The next meeting will be on June 6th. It will be at the Patrick Ranch. President Eric will present the program. There will be a Board Meeting at 5:00 pm..
Bring guests who you think you can interest in becoming a member. Think of business owners or managers to bring. Your dinner and your guest’s dinner will be paid for by the Club. Also, bring a guest to one of our occasional social gatherings in the Durham Park or a Pizza place (Monday Night Football).

The Rotary Foundation Donations
You can make a difference in this world by helping people in need. Your gift can do some great things, from supplying filters that clean people’s drinking water to empowering local entrepreneurs to grow through business development training.
The Rotary Foundation will use your gift to fund the life-changing work of Rotary members who provide sustainable solutions to their communities’ most pressing needs. But we need help from people like you who will take action and give the gift of Rotary to make these projects possible.
When every Rotarian gives every year, no challenge is too great for us to make a difference. The minimum gift to The Rotary Foundation is $25.00. An annual $100.00 gift is a sustaining member. Once your donations accumulate to $1,000 you become a Paul Harris Fellow.
It is possible to learn more about The Rotary Foundation on the Rotary web site.
Your gift can be made online or by sending Jessica Thorpe a check made out to The Rotary Foundation to Durham Rotary, P.O. Box 383, Durham, California 95958.
