  • Mike Pecosh: always promoting wellness and saw Susan Priest at the Wellness Center (cannot repeat details)….a bit peculiar and something about tattoos??? Who has tattoos???
  • Tripp Kline: happy to explain “being flocked”; a gesture by Trinity students as a fund raiser and “flocked” him with 42 pink flamingos in his driveway! Truly a great surprise and sorry we don’t have pictures!
  • Paula Leppert: happy to travel South starting with Richmond VA, then on to Winston-Salem and several other outstanding stops along the way to Siesta Key for a month.
  • Jim Uram: announced brother Matt and son are going to D.C. for the inauguration (History in the making). Safe trip Matt….

  • Board will interview John Hopper following today’s regular meeting and John hopes to renew membership in Rotary.
  • Resurrection of the Rotary Biggest Looser Weight Loss…those participating will try to gather sponsors willing to pay $2/pound and these funds will go to the Club general expense fund. More to come next week…no nasty tricks this year supposedly!

Adult tickets are $15 and student tickets are $5. As in the past we are asking members to purchase tickets that can be given over to the students who may not be able to afford tickets and there was a great start today with a number of generous donations to purchase tickets to be used by these students. THANK YOU!

PROGRAM: History of Printing

Our Club experts in printing (Bill Mesler and Bill Gardner) gave a program on the History of Printing Methods. Information ranges from the first printer to today’s latest methods.

We all know Bill Mesler was/is Mr Quality Quik and  Bill Gardner presented his portion of the program by showing how Xerox printing has evolved by showing 3 different U-Tube clips from different commercials. Many members recalled the commercials ….Brother Dominic was the star and it was quite interesting to see the progression of the technology.

The clip 75 years in 75 seconds really pinpointed the rapid development of the printing process that is so prevalent today.
