The meeting was called to order by President John Woodbery at 6:30 pm. The flag salute was led by Dave Aubry.
The inspiration moment was shared by John Woodberry. John admitted that he was not sure it related directly back to Rotary. The moral of the story is that desperation begets cleverness.
Visitors include Claudia Smith who is looking for her next Rotary club.  Margaret Tafoya & Cheryl Guenther from Jefferson House

Special Announcements. As voted on by the Board, James Nevers was Rotarian of the Monty for August 2019.
Program speaker was Carolyn Raichle who spoke about her Mother, Jean McFee Raichle, and the Artist Within.  Carolyn showed a short film about her Mother and the power of art when people have dementia. Carolyn’s discussion drew many questions and was very moving. Carolyn encouraged us to find joy in any interaction, be patient and ready to redirect your friend or family member who may find themselves in this situation.
The meeting ended at 7:30 pm.
