Call to Meeting & Thought for the Day
President Terri Bryant read quotes from Ann Bradstreet - "If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."

Rotarians John Murphy and Al Jacobs treated fellow Rotarians and guests to many Irish jokes.

How can you tell an Irish pirate - he has a patch over each eye. What bird doesn't live in a nest ?

a cuckoo - it lives in a clock. Three men are facing a guillotine - all elect to lie face up. The first two are released because the guillotine jams. The third is an Irishman who experiences the same thing - the guillotine jams. He tells his executioners that he knows what the problem is. And then there was the Irishman who was stopped by the police and asked for his drivers license and he quickly responded that they took his license the day before. There were many others - Great job!!!!
