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
Non-Rotarian visitors were from The Penfield
Racquet Club: Keith LoPresto, Todd Shaw and
Todd Shaw and Jeremiah King
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
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:
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
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-
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
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.
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.
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 $.
Mike Whittemore is a veteran radio man who
Mike Whittemore and Pres. Charlie
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-
JOHN TURNER held the winning ticket for the
raffle and pocketed a Hamilton ($10), while
leaving the $250 big pot intact.
