Karl led the Pledge of Allegiance.

Hoppy lead the group in song, Take me out to the Ballgame, in honor of spring training.

Rotary Moment: Eric reported on what we all take for granted: clean water.

Vaughn disclosed that the club received a thank you for the club’s support of the Flagstaff spelling bee. The schools are currently seeking judges for next year, particularly as each school needs outside support. President Jeff read the thank you note acknowledging Rotary for its $250 donation for the 1st place award.

Members were challenged with a Rotary magazine question as to the color of the ribbon in the hair of the young woman on the cover. Hoppy guessed it: yellow. President Jeff encouraged all to read the related article.

Speaker:  Neil Chapman, Forest Program Manager
Program: Accelerating Forest Thinning in Northern Arizona

Frank introduced the speaker.

Our forest has been growing for over 11,000 years yet we have only actively been suppressing fires for 100 years. Catastrophic fires impact the entire community. The expense of thinning is far less than the financial consequences of unmanaged wild fires. Controlled burns are an additional method of management. Smoke mitigation is a community concern yet smoke from controlled burns has less negative impact than that of wild fires.  A robust Q&A pursued and had to be tabled until after the formal meeting.

Jeff presented the speaker with a book for his signature which will be donated.

Vaughn led the 4 Way Test to conclude the meeting.
