President Jeff called the 14th meeting of the Rotary year to order at 12:00.  The Pledge was led by Craig.  In an attempt to ease the gloom of the day outside, Hoppy led us in “On the Sunny Side of the Street.”  A good rendition by Hoppy, the rest of us…not so much.  Eric Walden spent a few minutes going over the Flagstaff Rotary Club Foundation. President Jeff presented the slate of officers for the 2019 – 2020 Rotary year.  They are:  President – Jeff, Treasurer – Millie, Sergeant-at-arms - Rick Smith.  They were unanimously accepted by the Club.  Nominations are still being accepted for President Elect.  Please contact Jeff if you are interested or would like to nominate someone.
