Steve Miklos asked that club auction items be to him at the meeting on January 17 or his office by January 20.
Steve Sprague levied fines.  He brought up a club tradition for anyone wearing a tie to our meeting.  Since 2 guests were wearing ties, out came the scissors and both ties were cut off.  Thanks to Bob Holderness and YK Chalamcherla for being good sports.

Brian Martell introduced our speaker, Councilman Roger Gaylord.  Roger started his presentation by saying he wore a tie to the meeting but took it off (probably at the suggestion of one of our members).  However, he admitted his error, produced his tie, and it was cut.  Roger's talk was about his experiences as a new councilman during the past two years.
  President Dave presented a box of Snook's chocolate in the shape of a Rotary Wheel to Roger.
Second Bike Trail Boardwalk Rebuild
On Saturday, January 12, several Rotarians under the direction of Justin Raithel, installed the decking on the long boardwalk on the bike trail that parallels Glenn between Sibley and Folsom Blvd.  The project started at 8 AM and was done about 1 PM.  As usual, refreshments were available.  The club demolished this deck on December 16.
Photos of the project are available on our website under Photo Albums.  The album is called Bike Trail Project - Long Boardwalk.
