The Bell Rings 
For those fortunate enough to arrive before the ringing of the bell by President Jeff, they were greeted by the friendly faces of Mike O’Doherty, Myrna Arias & Duncan Harris. As the junior assistant Beacon editor, I barely made the cutoff! This was a perfect opportunity to meet Myrna & Duncan and sign their new member sheet- be sure to do so soon if you haven’t already! At just a few minutes past 7, our fearless leader brought us to our feet and MJ Pasek lead us in prayer and Cheryl Scott helped with the flag salute. Then our ever-talented songstress, Carol Smith, fresh from her recent retreat to Hawaii, directed us through a tentative rendition of Tiny Bubbles (we sounded nothing like Don Ho!).
 
David Perkins indicated no visiting Rotarians came to break bread with us this week, but Jackie Maxwell brought he good friend Holly Kuns as her guest for the second week in a row. Welcome Holly!  Then Denise Haynes oriented us on the duty roster signup sheets for Thousand Flags. Finally, our membership chair, Pat Thompson, presented the official blue badge to new member Cameron Cerda. Special guests for Cameron’s blue badge ceremony included Heath Niemeyer, Donna Schwartz, Neil Walker, and Mike Turnipseed. These special guests had yet to meet Cameron or sign his new member form and as such received the opportunity to augment the Bakersfield Breakfast Rotary Club coffers.

When I consider the lack of cooperation in human society, I can only conclude that it stems from ignorance of our interdependent nature.
