Highlights of Today's Meeting
Rotary Pins -- You Need to Wear Them
President Doug Feco asked how many of us were wearing our pins and he was happy to see that more than 50% of us did! He did send a box around for those that didn't wear their pins and collected $1 from each of them! Reminder, wearing our pin is a great way to promote our Club and Rotary!  The dollars raised will be matched by Doug and donated to our Charitable Foundation for scholarships.  
100th Year Anniversary of
US Troops at Brest, France
We had the pleasure of hearing a brief history of the friendship between the US and France by Jean Pierre Rogel. Cesar Zambrano introduced him as a Citizen of the Planet for all that he has done through Rotary and around the world.
Doug Feco's Rotary Moment
He talked about the history of polio eradication.Rotary, along with our partners, has reduced polio cases by 99.9 percent worldwide since our first project to vaccinate children in the Philippines in 1979. We are close to eradicating polio with only 8 new cases reported this year and with only three countries reporting polio today. 
Shine the light on YOU
Doug honored Bill Fox with this award this morning for helping him to successfully transition into being president this year!

Cajun Debriefing Meeting TONIGHT!

Bob Brill
Commander - SVPD
Mayor Bob Huber
State of the City of Simi Valley
We had the pleasure of hearing from our very own Mayor Bob Huber.  He has been a Rotarian for more than 50 years.  He talked about how our city has maintained our AAA rating and how we rank as safest city in California and the country. (Hint, we are VERY safe.) He also talked about a committee that is now looking at the transit in the city, how they partner with the Chamber of Commerce to bring more tourism to our city, what they are doing in around the city.  (See the FUN FACTS flyer below for more information!)
