Quincy Backen opened the meeting, Lyman Keim gave the table blessing and Jason Bitz collected numerous “Happy Dollars” for Rotary projects. Those Rotarians with guests introduced them. Student guests were Jana Lynch and Brittany McIntyre. Lynch is the daughter of John and Jeri Lynch; she is a senior at JHS. She works part time at the Bison 6 Cinema. After graduation from JHS, she plans to attend Jamestown College or South Dakota State University and major in theater or English/biology education. McIntyre is also a senior at JHS and the daughter of Mike and Cheryl McIntyre. She works part time at Dairy Queen as a shift leader and helps in the nursery at the New Hope Lutheran Church. After graduation she plans to attend Jamestown College and major in early childhood education and elementary counseling.
Keim said more than 100 children attended the first Saturday movie fundraiser. He believes there will be more attending during the next five weeks as the word gets out on this movie special.
Backen reminded members to put April 18 on the calendar for the Brew Ha, Ha and Silent Auction at the Gladstone Inn & Suites. The funds raised from this affair will help provide funds to two special Rotary projects. With Dave Smette being the incoming district governor for Rotary, there will be a special evening event held at the Quality Inn and Suites on May 31, which will be the “handing of the gavel” from the current governor to Smette. This is a first for the Jamestown Rotary Club to have a district governor come from the Jamestown Rotary Club. Another date for the members to place on their schedule is the District Conventions to be held in Bemidji, Minn., on April 26-28.
Tim Ottmar is in charge of today’s program. The invocation will be by Steve Listopad, songs by Gary Riffe and Gina Dahl and Bitz will be the sergeant at arms.
