Notes From the September 24 Club Meeting
Happy Dollars

$Kevin Learned was happy to join the fun Rotary Club of Guadalajara meeting this past week, and to honor the memory of Allen Derr, who once served as co-counsel with Ruth Bader Ginsburg.  Read about this past member of our Club and his outstanding life achievements at

Chuck Clark was happy for two reasons:  he was able to regale us with his University of Oklahoma team updates, and he also enjoyed to Rotary Club of Guadalajara meeting.

Tom Wilford was happy to join Kevin in honoring the memory and accomplishments of Allen Derr.

Beth Markley was happy that she and Mike finished their first virtual half marathon last weekend, got lots of cool swag from FitOne, incorporated barley-based refreshment stops along the route, and apparently won (considering she was the first at her finish line).  Congratulations Beth!

Laurie Zuckerman was happy that her daughter Patty and friend Sema plan to complete the FitOne race this weekend, and may have to incorporate some of Beth's refreshment stops.

Todd Breton, President of Sugar Land Rotary Club, was in attendance. He is trying to 'attend' a Rotary meeting in every state during his term as president, and so far has 32 checked off.

Information About Your Membership
While we are meeting remotely, we will continue to include the standard meal charge of $77.34 in our bi-monthly invoices, only now it will be called "community benefit," to reflect where the money is really going. When we cannot meet over meals, your payment helps us keep our lease on the meeting room and storage space, and also benefits our community (most of our meals are donated to Interfaith Sanctuary). This all enables a seamless return to our in-person meetings once it is safe.
For those who continue to pay for this community benefit thank you.
If you are not able to catch a live zoom meeting, email for a link to a recording of the meeting later.
