Breakfast by: Robert Wales
Invocation by: Dana Worth
Pledge by: Michael S
Join us in person on Thursdays at 7:30 or via Zoom at 
Mark your calendars
Our speaker on April 8th will be David Munson Jr. 
David  has had a wide variety of business and personal activities that give him an unique perspective on the world.  His decades of agriculture ending with a successful grass fed beef operation gives him insights on the potential of the land to sequester carbon. He is now a writer with a book coming out soon on climate change that really overturns many of the impractical proposals for a better way to make the world carbon negative while we still use oil and gas.  Go to for more information. 
Join us in person with mask and/or via Zoom at 
Our meeting on April 15th will be a service project as we assemble the Veteran Comfort Kits to be delivered to the District Conference. Come  and invite a friend to help with the Kit assembly.
We should also have some time for fellowship and happy dollar stories.
Last week's actions
Last week at our meeting John Cave gave  a presentation on April Fools Day and Peace Foundation. How do April Fools day and Rotary Peace Foundation link up? John provided an education on the Peace efforts and treaties that grew out of the second world war, such as NATO and the UN. He also provided a linkage to Rotary and each role in the formation of the UN and the role it plays today.
The Club was able to discuss international law and the relationship with US laws. 
The Club also voted to purchase the items needed for 50 Veteran Comfort Kits.
