Highlights of Today's Meeting
Rotary Pins -- You Need to Wear Them
President Doug Feco again asked those that wore their pins to stand up.  If you forgot to wear it he asked that you put a dollar in the box being passed around! The dollars raised will be matched by Doug and donated to our Charitable Foundation for scholarships.  
Doug Feco's Vocational Moment and Michelle Foster's Rotary Moment
Doug shared information about a member, her family, her business, her career and her involvement with Rotary -- it was Michelle Foster!
Then Michelle talked about her Rotary Moment, which was when she and Craig attended the Rotary International Convention in Singapore.  While riding the bus to the convention center, Michelle noticed a woman, dressed in the style from her country, wearing the same Rotary pin.  It was then that she felt the full depth that Rotary has throughout the world and all the good that it is doing here and abroad.
Rotary Foundation Moment
Lisa Brough talked about how you get a Paul Harris Fellow: 1. Make a $1000 donation or 2. Set up a plan to donate $83.50/monthly, which equals $1000 at the end of 12 months.  If you donated $1000 each year you become a member of the Paul Harris Society.
Rat Fink
Peter Cicciarri was our Rat Fink this morning and shared information about the Rotary Foundation -- like when it was started (1917) and who started it (Arch C. Klumph).
Rotary Information Next Wednesday
BJ Anderson announced that there will be a Rotary Information on Wednesday, August 9th a 7:00 p.m. at her house 4265 Avenida Simi.  Board members and chairs of events are encouraged to attend so that new members can get a great overview of all that our club does here in the city and internationally!
Smoke Alarm Community Project
Leigh Seaton announced the upcoming Smoke Alarm Installation on Saturday, August 12th at the Friendly Village Mobile Home Park. Sign ups are on the tables now and more volunteers are still needed.
