29 Jun Spoke Newsletter – 06/29/2017
We promised you a surprise, and we weren’t kidding! Suffice to say, today’s program will require the flowing creative juices of every member present as we honor PREZ JAN for this Rotary year, so make sure bring your thinking caps… There might even be a prize involved. Who knows? It’s a SURPRISE!
The Redlands Bowl Summer Music Festival, coordinated by the organization-formerly-known-as Redlands Community Music Association and now called Redlands Bowl Performing Arts, enters its 94th season thanks to BEV NOERR and VALERIE PEISTER who shared this year’s highlights with the Club. The season kicks off tomorrow, June 30 with “San Bernardino Symphony Orchestra: 76 Trombones and More!” And you thought one trombone was enough…
The doubtless-to-be-despotic reign of his imperial highness AJ BEECHKO officially begins next week. What tales of intrigue will the coming year bring to the ROTARY CLUB OF REDLANDS? A different verse of American Pie each week?
That should last nearly the entire duration of this presidency.
Hopefully you’ve already signed up JAN’s demotion gathering, tonight at 7pm . Party planner with the mostest JACQUI LANIER has put together festive food and drink at the home of KEVIN and DREW CORREIA, 515 Nottingham Drive. If you haven’t made a reservation yet, if you’re really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really nice to CAL BOOTHBY he might be able to get you in. Maybe.
REDLANDS BOWL TOMORROW
If you’ve signed up to help out for the opening concert of the Bowl season, don’t forget IT’S TOMORROW! Be sure to meet at the designated time and place before the concert for section assignments – and wear your favorite item of Rotary apparel if you have one.
Because getting ready for the demotion party AND the opening Bowl concert isn’t enough for Rotarians, be sure to sign up to help the Redlands Fourth of July Committee celebrate Independence Day at Ted Runner Stadium next Tuesday, July 4! It is, without a doubt, the best fireworks production in the western hemisphere. See BILL MCCALMON to get your name on the list. After all, it’s your duty as an AMERICAN ROTARIAN.
Happy Thursday Rotarians! In this last week, and in my last Presidents Corner, it is my honor to recognize some more very special Rotarians for all the work they provided in support of making my year of Presidency just that much easier!
