The Rotary Foundation - A Foundation to Build On
November 11, 2020
From the President
We had our 4th meeting at a potential location for BBRC and wow what a nice place. Thank you to the Yard House for their hospitality, good food and great service. We will be back there on Wednesday.
Don’t forget to bring your food for the Thanksgiving Baskets to the meeting on Wednesday. Speaking of Thanksgiving the turkeys for the baskets came in a week early and the Broken Yolk didn’t have room in there freezer for them. Dan and Char Johnson stepped up and found someone that would store the 1,200 lbs of birds. Thanks to Flame & Skewers for letting us use their walk in freezer. Thank you Johnsons for stepping up!!
Rotary Rocks!!
See you Wednesday,
BBRC Happenings
This day November 11th we recognize United States Military Veterans for unselfishly placing themselves in harms way to protect America. It is a tall task that not all choose to step forward for, but to those that did, we thank you for your dedication. Let us never forget your service. Bakersfield Breakfast Rotary has several brave soldiers, airmen and sailors. We personally wish to thank each and every one of you for preserving our freedom, being in fellowship in our club, and for your friendship. We Salute You!
President Dave Spalinger commenced our morning meeting by welcoming Sally Selby to provide our invocation. Thank you Sally for your heartfelt words to guide us. Past President Cheryl Scott lead us in America’s Flag Salute. We all took notice that not only did Cheryl hold that flag high as she could, she was also decked out in a spirited outfit that proudly displayed prominent bold stars and flag colors. Speaking of our veterans and patriotism, Past President Denise Haynes lead our morning Rotarians in singing “The Battle Hymn of the Republic”. Thank you Denise for the handy sheets bearing the lyrics!
Mary Jo Pasek, also very chipper looking in her Red, White, and Blue attire announced our lone Visiting Rotarian. That Rotarian was none other than the Honorable Honorary Rotarian and Past President Steve Shayer. Sandra Parnell brought her loving husband, Jon Parnell as the lone visitor. Jon is a frequent visitor and this dynamic duo both do a lot of heavy lifting when it comes to our BBRC activities. Your team work does not go unnoticed Parnells!
Greeters Stephanie Baker and Pete Leveroni welcomed each and every one of us to our fourth try-out destination, The Yard House. We are in the thick of finding our new Breakfast Rotary permanent home; this was the last venue for us to sample. A Survey Monkey, not a real monkey Past President Mike O’Doherty, will be forthcoming for your input, so please reply to choose our future home. By the way, we will be meeting at The Yard House next club meeting Wednesday morning November 18th.

Every noble work is bound to face problems and obstacles. It is important to check your goal and motivation thoroughly. One should be very truthful, honest, and reasonable. One's actions should be good for others, and for oneself as well. Once a positive goal is chosen, you should decide to pursue it all the way to the end. Even if it is not realized, at least there will be no regret. - Dalai Lama
