Meeting Minutes

President Billy opened the meeting, and invited Erick Montgomery to lead the pledge and invocation. Margaret Woodard welcomed our visiting Rotarians and guests.

President Billy announced last week's CART Challenge raised $208.14. Last week's challengers were Judy Kay and Fuller Frost; this week's challengers are Brenda Durant and The Frame Shop. Brad Means brought the week's Sunshine Report.

The speaker for this week's meeting was our own Thomas H. (Tom) Robertson, who shared stories and pictures from his book Resisting Sherman: A Confederate Surgeon's Journal and the Civil War in the Carolinas. This book is based on the journal of Francis Marion Robertson, Tom's great-great grandfather. In the final months of the Civil War, Dr. F.M. Robertson made a journey from Charleston S.C. all the way to Virginia and back, in an effort to assist the Southern cause. Tom retraced much of that journey in preparing to write the book, and was able to describe in considerable detail many of the still-extant sites mentioned in his ancestor's journal. A brief period of Q&A followed the presentation, and Tom was delighted to sell as many additional copies of the book as our chapter members were pleased to purchase.

President Billy announced that the Plant Voegel trip is scheduled for October 27th and is filling up quickly, please let him know if you'd like to attend. 

Augusta Downtown Rotary will not meet next week, October 12, as it falls on Columbus Day.
The meeting concluded with the recitation of the Four-Way Test
