Jim Weight, Jamestown building inspector, was guest speaker at the Oct. 11 Rotary meeting. The program was introduced by Vince Gregor. Weight updated the club on several projects including the Latter Day Saints Church, Temple Baptist Church, St. James Basilica, 101 storage units at Super 8 Motel, building addition at Infinity Builders, new addition at Stutsman Harley-Davidson, Farmers Union remodel, six new theaters at Bison Mall, Buffalo City Rotisserie Grille remodel and clinic additions at Jamestown Regional Medical Center. Residential building in Jamestown is at the lowest it has been in many years with only four permits. There has been talk of some new buildings by the new hospital, but nothing concrete at this time. Weight will retire at the end of November and Gary Klundt will be the new building inspector. Weight said his first club presentation was in 1980 and that Rotary would probably be his last presentation.
Doug Frohlich presided over the meeting. Tom Eckstein gave the invocation. Song leader was Selmer Spitzer and sergeant-at-arms was Dave Smette. Mayor Katie Andersen brought a guest, her new baby daughter. Dave Smette gave a Rotary mission moment, speaking on Rotary ideals: peace, service, integrity, good will and fellowship. He also brought the club up to date on the Rotary project in Nepal.
Gail Martin reminded Rotary members of the Rose Sale on Oct. 15. A couple more workers are needed to hand out roses on that day. Rotary members were also reminded that Christmas lights on Mill Hill will go up Oct. 24 and 26.
Mark Olson gave a final report on the Camp Rokiwan children's camp held this summer. There were 55 campers who attended with a waiting list of campers to get in. Thank-you notes to Rotary and Kiwanis from the campers were presented for making this camp possible for children. It was a successful summer camp under the leadership of Camp Director Lynette Ryan. Photos from the summer camping experience were passed around to club members.
The next regular meeting will be held at the Lantern Room on Oct. 18. Joan Morris is in charge of the program, Jason Bitz will give the invocation, Larry Hoffman is the song leader and Jason Braun is the sergeant-at-arms.
