Today's Board Meeting was held on Zoom
Ms. Demi Fox
Demi started our virtual meeting and she went easy on us with just some breathing exercises.  The ONLY good thing about Zoom meetings - going easy on us.
John Baxter lead the invocation this morning.
Herschel Berger lead us in the flag salute.  
President Bill congratulated everyone on the success of the Queen Nation concert last Friday evening.  The first outdoor concert in Simi since the onset of Covid.  The band has never played better, we enjoyed wonderful weather along with a spectacular sunset.  A good time was had by all with families gathering and people of all ages attending.  And, all the while, practicing Covid protocol of course.  This was an excellent community event that received great reviews on social media and from City officials.   To top that all off, the Club made money!  This success will most likely lead to similar events in the future.  
Congratulations Larry and Ryan!
John Baxter's Woman On The Street Interview Series (cont.)
John's interview today was with with our very own Ms. Kailey Wagner.  Kailey is a Financial Advisor with Edward Jones. She's had her own business for 7 years now and feels that this is her niche.  Combining her people person skills with her financial acumen is what she's good at.  See John Baxter for a clip of the full interview.
Kailey and John 
  Our next meeting will be April 15th, 2021.  It will be IN PERSON at the JUNKYARD.  
Please remember to bring a friend or an acquaintance to our next meeting.  This is a GREAT way to grow our membership!  And the guest's lunch is taken care of.

Team Ginny Update
Spread the message!
Carolyn showed us all how to save the Team Ginny message as your Zoom background - see above.  With so many of us utilizing Zoom, this is a great way to spread the word.  Just another way to keep getting the message out when Covid makes it so hard to do so.  See Carolyn if you need help on this. 
If you need to learn how to Share on social media, please reach out to Team Ginny and they will be glad to help.
Here's another link that can be shared as well:
Here's a link to a Testimonial from Rocky and Tony....
Leigh reminded us that there is an upcoming Blood Drive on April 15th.  He needs 15 more appointments booked so please contact Leigh to arrange an appointment time.
The house cleanup at 1493 Sorrel Street is back on.  The owner, if you recall, is an elderly lady with no family or support.  This is what Rotary is all about.  It is set for Tuesday April 13th from 8:30 - 11:00 AM.
Bring gloves, eye protection and you're favorite tool - Leigh's words, not mine. 
Kathy Scroggin reminded us of the upcoming 2021 Virtual District Training Assembly on April 17, 2021.  She encouraged everyone to, at a minimum. attend the Opening Session from 9:00 to 9:45 AM.  She promises that you will be inspired and it's a great way to learn more about Rotary if you are new to the Club.

Our Guests today included:
Mr. Sam Wolfe
Mr. Donavon Downey
Ms. Sara Langberg (Guest Speaker)
Mr. Sam Wolfe
Mr. Donavon Downey, we think
Our Guest Speaker today was Ms. Sara Langberg, an Aeromechanical Engineer and employee of AeroVironment, a local Simi firm.  Sara is also a local having graduated from Simi Hi.  Dr. P, being her principal, refused to take credit for her success however.
Sara gave us a most impressive presentation on the Ingenuity Mars Helicopter that her firm built.  It will fly on Mars this Sunday, April 11th and will be the first powered flight on another planet.  This is all part of the Mars Perseverance mission that landed on Mars February 18, 2021.  A cool piece of information she shared with us is that a small scrap of fabric from the Wright Brothers plane went along for the ride to Mars.  Bruce wanted to know if Aerovironment could arrange to have Happy Face Hill replicated on Mars since it's a local frim and all and would provide great PR for our city.  Sara's response was quite polite.
Following are some slides from her presentation:
