    WELCOMING AND BEGINNING

    JOHN TURNER greeted Rotarians and guests in

    the absence of slated official greeter SEAN

    PATTON. Recently returned ZAC DRESSNER

    led the pledge and the ever-versatile BOB

    SMITH offered the invocation. At the start of

    the meeting, we had one visiting Rotarian, Jona-

    than Usdin from Pen-Web. At the end of the

    meeting, there were two visiting Rotarians, plus

    one more Penfield Rotarian, than when the

    meeting was called to order by President

    CHARLIE BELLOMO. (If you were not present

    for the meeting, you should still be able to figure

    that out).

    GUESTS

    Non-Rotarian visitors were from The Penfield

    Racquet Club: Keith LoPresto, Todd Shaw and

    Jeremiah King.

    SUNSHINE REPORT

    While there was no Sunshine Report, BOB

    SMITH noted that BOB GENTLE is en route

    from Fla. to NY and should be back any day

    now.

    ANNOUNCEMENTS, ETC.

    President CHARLIE said that there were no an-

    nouncements on his part, and called for mem-

    bers to make theirs:

    DON MILTON and LINDA KOHL:

    Don

    They sang very high praises for RocCity Un-

    corked, which was held at the Convention Cen-

    ter April 8th. The venue was great, plenty of

    space and lauded by vendors and guests alike.

    Others who attended, like DAVE STURTZ,

    nodded in agreement.

    During this period, NELS CARMAN collected

    Nels and Michele

    for the monthly 2-2-2, and BILL PETHICK re-

    minded us that there are many Penfield Rotary

    Partner decals available to recognize Club sup-

    porters who have donated to the success of the

    recent Euchre Tournament. Pick them up at any

  • 3

    meeting, (see Bill), and offer them to donors to

    display in their places of business.

    BOB SMITH noted that a meeting of the Golf

    Committee was held last night to identify ave-

    nues to success for this year. More ideas, such

    as the one offered by LINDA KOHL to amp up

    the dinner revenues, are welcome. A portion of

    a regular meeting (or a whole meeting, if possi-

    ble) is sought soon to launch this Club-wide ef-

    fort.

    MARY ANN MADY asked that any outstand-

    ing bills or money from the Euchre Tourney be

    given to CHRIS KAUSCH as soon as possible

    so that the books can be closed on that event.

    Also, if you have something to give to the Trea-

    sure Box project, now is the time to get it to her

    so that she can assemble them.

    JOHN CARLEVATTI advised that the evening

    meeting April 27th, (that must be the 26th) will

    John

    present the opportunity for the presentation of

    the School Districts budget for next year. He

    encouraged us to invite guests and mentioned

    that the Penfield Business Association members

    are asked to attend as well.

    Pres. CHARLIE has reserved the Dolomite

    Lodge for a July picnic and will also reserve a

    December date there for our Christmas Party.

    THE INDUCTIONS

    Charlie, Michele and Bob

    Our newest member, MICHELE STOKES, was

    inducted with the participation of several of the

    Board members. Looking on approvingly was

    BOB SMITH who proposed MICHELE for

    membership. (Her father, Gil, is a past president

    of Penfield Rotary). Welcome MICHELE!

    Vince Palumbos from the Pen-Web Club was

    inducted into Rotary with the participation of

    one of their charter members, Jonathan Usdin,

    as part of the induction ceremony.

    HAPPY DOLLAR$

    As there was no time for Happy Dollar$, Pres.

    CHARLIE asked all to save for next week what

    they would have put in to jam the potty full of $.

    PROGRAM

    Mike Whittemore is a veteran radio man who

    Mike Whittemore and Pres. Charlie

  • 4

    is now both Senior Account Executive with

    WHAM and host of the Saturday morning show,

    Home Repair Clinic. His PowerPoint presen-

    tation focused on the strengths of radio as con-

    trasted with other media in presenting messages

    to listeners. Radio is a connection to the past,

    but also ties into more recent forms of commu-

    nication, such as the social networks of the in-

    ternet.

    50/50 RAFFLE

    JOHN TURNER held the winning ticket for the

    raffle and pocketed a Hamilton ($10), while

    leaving the $250 big pot intact.
