            Should the club hold a Valentine’s party?
            If the Covid chaos abates quickly, club Secretary Michelle Fossum raised the question about having a Feb. 14 gathering since the holiday party scheduled Dec. 6 was postponed when snow and ice made travel difficult.
           The small gathering at the Jan. 3 luncheon said a potluck Valentine’s Day event on Monday, Feb. 14, would be a good idea…depending on more snow or less Omicron and other Covid woes.  The club directors will discuss this and all members are welcome to comment.
Snow curbs club luncheon crowd
            Just six members and one guest weathered the snowy, sloppy streets for the first club luncheon of 2022.
            Half of the club members were “Steve,” including immediate past-president Steve Bergman, director Steve Perry and Steve Boharski, also a past president, who talked about his Christmastime visit to the Galapagos Islands.  Steve Perry recalled his visit to the Galapagos in 1964. 
           Steve Boharski said he will present a slide show of his trip at a future club luncheon. The Galapagos Islands, a nature treasure, are 563 miles west of Ecuador.
            The club guest was Mary Joanis of the Barrilles Rotary Club near Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.  She will the club’s speaker next week.
