Report from the Tour at SFMOMA
Rotarians and guests enjoyed a private tour of highlights of the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) on Thursday, August 30. We learned the difference between modern and contemporary art, with a focus on the contemporary artwork in the museum.
Eugene (Gene) Lee
Our Club has been blessed to have Eugene (Gene) Lee (Consulting-Technical Management, Retired) as a member for the past 42 years. He loved life and loved being a Rotarian. When he was no longer able to attend Rotary luncheons and events, members of our Club would visit him. During these visits, Gene would sometimes write a donation check or give bottles of wine to be used as a raffle or auction item. This way he was always part of us at our gatherings.
