Sam commandeered the 50/50 draw this week. Monique had the winning ticket and showed she has lots of heart by drawing the 8 of hearts. So the pot will start to grow again.
Happy Bucks
Gary shared his exuberance for life and encouraged us to do likewise… for a $1.
Peter Pauker Classification Talk
Born in Czechoslovakia, but in 1968 when the tanks rolled in his family left for France, and then emigrated to Canada. Speaking no English, Peter picked it up pretty quickly thanks to several hours a day in English at high school, but realized he preferred math and science to language! He went on to graduate from U0T in Applied Sciences and landed a job with the government in food testing. Moving to Ottawa, Peter worked in various departments, applying his science schooling and retired after 36 years. He shared several interesting facts about food and food production (if anyone asks, Brazil is the largest producer of beef).
Peter now spends some time working in renovations with a friend and, lucky for us, contributing his time to Rotary events.
President Joan ended the meeting promptly at 1:30pm.
