President Ed opened the meeting and called on Jeff Flowers, who asked the members to reflect for a moment on the meaning of the Memorial Day just passed and the sacrifices of D-Day whose anniversary is upon us. He then led us in the Pledge and gave the Invocation. President Ed read a letter from Jason Murphy, a previous recipient of a Hull Fund Scholarship. After describing his school and job experience, Mr. Murphy wrote “I simply cannot thank the trustees of the Hull Fund Scholarship enough. I hope that you can see the greatness that this fund is doing for the people you so graciously give to, and I hope that I make each and every one of you proud. It is with the highest honor that I call myself a Hull Fund Scholar.” Richard Rogers gave the Sunshine Report. At our last meeting, we raised $306.09 for CART. Inside challenger was Rotarian Chris Eterlee; Fuller, Frost, and Associates was the outside challenger. This week the inside challenger is Rotarian Patrick Cullinan and Rotarian Barclay Bishop and I are the outside challengers. CART Fund reminder: let’s continue helping the committee as we transition years so we can maintain our leadership in the District.
Announcements: Jakob Fahl gave his farewell.
