LUNCHEON MEETING MINUTES February 5, 2019 - Barbara Engdahl
President-elect Casey Blair led today’s meeting. He welcomed visiting Rotarians from Turkey (Istanbul) and Rwanda. We were joined by several prospective new members. A number of guests were also in attendance from the Glaucoma Research Foundation and The Arc San Francisco.
President-elect Casey recapped several events from the past week. The “Mix and Mingle” social at the Academy of Art Automobile Museum on January 31 was very successful, with over 30 members and guests enjoying an opportunity to socialize amidst classic cars. The Super Bowl Party at the home of Lilian Tsi-Stielstra (Insurance Services; Wells Fargo Advisors) was a wonderful event (even though the game was a defensive struggle).
