Meeting Notes - July 13

"I always look forward to Wednesdays, what a great way to start the day at our rotary meetings," says Rotary Club President Mark Brubaker.

Like a good breakfast, The Irvine Rotary Club was graded at the top in food for rotary meetings, visitors are welcome to come taste why! Our club member Diane, a caterer, is an awesome cook. Yum!

Visitors: They can't stay away, former rotary club member Lutz visited our club from his home now in Germany, he brought his teenage daughter too!

Rotary club members are welcome to attend our board meetings. Mark's goal is for every club member to serve on a committee, it builds camaraderie and helps us get our work accomplished easier.

Member Austin Wall was recognized for his service to kids in Haiti when the club awarded him another Paul Harris level.

New Member Robyn Nelson, has a lot of Rotary experience. She's currently Dean of Nursing at Orange Coast College. Welcome Robyn!

Cynthia Mendoza says if you plan to attend the OC Fair, bring three gently used kid’s books or one new book to get in for free. Volunteers are needed to work the book drive booth.

Service for Marines: Visitor Cynthia, President of the Newport Sunrise Club, talked about her club's involvement in the active lives of Marines at Camp Pendleton. She collected dollars from our members to buy cookies for the kids of Marine Families.
