El Jefe Doug rang the bell at  12:22 - followed by the, prayer (Chuck Watson) and 4 way test. 
The wisecracking Bill Saloukas ended his joke with 'apple juice, tomato juice, pineapple juice'
GUESTS AND VISITORS: NONE! Its always good to see some fresh faces at our meeting, who will you bring next week?
WELCOME BACK:  Horton - he is headed back to sunny Florida.  (psst. - don't tell him that he will be missed)
HAPPY DOLLARS AND FINES: Color fine - Our S@A forgot to fine for color, hope he comes ready to be fined next week!  Late - Jon and Rob Sanders.  No pin - Jay.  Jim pink or baby blue Mullevey - fined everyone but Robin, because she was the only one who commented on his 10 lb weight loss.  Jay - happy he gained 8 lbs and his biceps are bigger than his dads.  Horton - $30.00 (don't faint) for the 30 years he has spent in Rotary.  Steve - sad to see Horton go. Chuck - Horton and retirement. Doug - Horton and Bill Donnellys ERAY gift to RI.  Jim - Chucks retirement and glad Horton is leaving.  Robin - for Hortons sense of humor? Addie - for Horton and Chuck getting speaker for career day. 
YOUR HELP NEEDED: Who will step up to the plate next year to pen the COGS?
COLOR OF THE WEEK: We have revived color of the week and a lot of our members aren't reading the COGS - we took in quite a few fines.  If you are looking under this heading to find out what the color of the week is, you are looking in the wrong place :-)  It's in this issue somewhere - it may even be a color that you've never even heard of (HINT - Google can help you in this instance).

The mission of Bloom Again Foundation is to provide rapid response financial assistance to economically vulnerable working women when they need it most due to personal or family medical emergencies. Millions of these women are one paycheck away from poverty. They scrape together what’s needed to get by from paycheck to paycheck without federal assistance, but one illness in the family, a car accident, or other medical emergency is life-changing for them.
A gift from Bloom Again Foundation provides working women living at or near the poverty level with the security and peace of mind needed to recover from incapacitating illnesses or maintain their households during medical emergencies.
