This week's Signature Lunch Program is all about fellowship, with the Club 10 Band playing holiday favorites followed by mini vocational talks from newer members. Join us for fun and the opportunity to get to know more about fellow Club members. Longtime members may recognize the format from Fellowship Breakfast Meetings of yore. 
How It Works:  
  • A designated person at each table will give a short informal vocational talk followed by Q&A about their career path, community involvement, etc.
  • After 15 minutes the presenters will rotate to a second table

Jim Delamater opened the meeting with a very nice Inspirational Minute and the 4 way test. Corey Edmunds introduced two guest and Bo Aylin was the greeter.  Sarah Kolar, who worked with Arnie Bockstruck, read a beautiful memorial for this very special man. President Michael–jon then tolled the bell for a moment of silence in Arnie’s honor. Linda Mulhern introduced the  exchange student Annika Nybraten,  who told us a little about herself.  The Getting to Know Your Fellow Rotarian was Rita Dibble: she told many interesting things that we did not know about her, she lived in 4 countries, visited 29 countries and she also sang! Her theme of what Rotary meant to her was: “it gave me wings.”   Darrell Butterwick introduced our newest Rotarian: Elisa Rasmussen.
We all cheered and clapped for the Team that put together the fabulous Winter Spark at Dick and Nancy Nicholson's house: Deb Katzmark, Laura Nichols-Endres, Sue Katsiotis, Kim Kirmeier, Jennifer Evers, Elyssa Weber, Dana Bruce, Jodi Erickson and Preident Michael-jon.
You should have picked up your ballot at the meeting, it is due Dec. 31, 2019
But the Shen Yun presentation, which was our main program, made you want to go out and buy tickets for the show.  It was superb!   Pingping Yu gave us a good flavor for the dance event coming Feb. 20th in the stunning videos she showed.  She talked about their loss of cultural identity and how Shen Yun brings it back.  Shen Yun is an awakening. It is the spirit of Chinese culture: “the beauty of the divine, beings dancing; as it combines ballet, acrobatics, martial arts, and ancient Chinese dance.  The video clips were stunning examples of the dancing, martial arts, and acrobatics.  The costumes really make the dancing. They are also: stunning!  As you might gather the word of the day was stunning to describe Shen Yun!
