Bob's Last Meeting (at Last!!!!)

For the last time during his legal tenure Prez Bob called the meeting to order and asked Bob Hathaway to lead the club in the pledge of allegiance. Don Ludwig finally found the right key as Leroy Fulton, Randy McFarland and Prez Bob led the singing.  Ray Hansen read a few inspirational thoughts before saying grace.

Allyn Lean introduced visitors that included long time Fullerton School District employee Billy Holt (Mc Cune), Fullerton Police Captain Geoff Spalding who supposedly had custody of Mike Oates who was un-accounted for at the meeting), and Alexa Levine (dad Art).

Prez Bob took a few minutes and gloated over the many fetes attained by the Fullerton Rotary Club under his leadership, and emphasized how it could never have happened without him.  Of course this was met by cheers and tears by the assembled members who raised Bob to their shoulders and paraded him around the room.  Bill Kincaid commented that it was the first time he’d ever seen that happen.

Other announcements included J. Ritchey who reminds us that July 24th will be a Fullerton Rotary day at the new Fullerton Flyers game at Goodwin Field.

Leroy Fulton announced the annual “Celebrate Hope” event for Hope International University, featuring Keynote Speaker Colonel Oliver North, to be held on October 7, 2005.
