5. District 5240 Conference in Bakersfield.  I have signed up.  Have you?  Y’all come!  Kathleen showed a video of DG Jim Bell inviting us all to Bakersfield.
6. Chris Clemens on the road said, “I am amazed at the number of Rotary symbols I’ve been seeing while on the road.  City parks, community centers, and welcome signs are adorned with the Rotary Wheel.  This Rotary billboard was painted on the side of a building in downtown Spokane…I was thinking we should commission Paul Musgrove to do one in Santa Barbara! (Of course, I’m sure the City of Santa Barbara may disagree…).”
7. Paul Didier announce the upcoming Day of Caring on September 19th.
8. Steve and Linda Peterson had a tie vote from club members last week and let his daughter pick the winning name for their dog.  The name is “Lucky”.  That seems appropriate as the dog is a rescue dog.
