Wanted everyone to get the word out about Rotary

Bob Webb led us in the Pledge of Allegiance
Rich Bergdahl gave an inspiring account of how a Rotarian in Sacramento California where Rich worked as a waiter for five years while on a break from college influenced his life. The Rotarian he met encouraged him to finish college and go to law school after he discovered Rich liked to read. The gentleman offered to pay all of Rich’s college and law school expenses and while tempting, Rich went ahead on his own with the continual encouragement of this older Rotarian friend.. Rich’s parting comment was that you as club members are PR men and women for this club every day.
President John thanked Rich Bergdahl for being the greeter and yours truly for acting as scribe.
