Rotarians are helping during the COVID-19 crisis!
Ken Donoughue continues to help feed needy children and the front lines during the COVID-19 pandemic in connection with the Pleasanton Rotary Club.  
Brenda Jackson continues to serve the community during the COVID-19 outbreak through her nursing profession and is unable to attend regular meetings. We commend you Brenda with the work that you are doing to support the community!
If anyone else from our club is assisting the community in any way during the COVID-19 crisis please let me know.  We would like to recognize your service in the community.
Prayer and Pledge
President Rick Tarbell opened this, his last meeting as club president, and led us with a word of prayer and the pledges. 
New Member Induction
As part of our program today we continue to make club history by inducting our newest member with the help of zoom!  President Rick Tarbell introduced our candidate, Maverick Pascal. Maverick works at USAA in property insurance. He is a Texas A&M at San Antonio grad, a Marine Corps Veteran,  and is a visual artist. He is pursuing his masters degree.  Veronica Ruse is his sponsor. Ken Ruiz and Allyson Hamlin were the induction team using the script that was used for Ken Ruiz' induction in 1988 into our club. We will present Rene's badge, pin and flag at when we meet again at the Outback Steakhouse.
Club Luncheon and Speaker
President Rick Tarbell introduced Kenny Wilson, CEO of Haven for Hope. He shared with us why he left an executive position with Bank of America to go to Haven for Hope. He said that this business is bigger and more complicated than he expected. The discipline and science of homelessness is complicated and there's not one answer to it. Haven for Hope helps people get to a better place. The mental health prevailing force is homelessness. People come her to get their life back in order.  It is a person centered care and trauma informed care. 
Umbrella Time
Secretary Mary Denton owns the umbrella this month. She shared some fascinating data about the San Antonio housing market. Mary's winning bid goes towards her Paul Harris fellowship.
Fines and Confessions - Missing Pins and Badges
Apparently we have all been little angels this week or at least we didn't admit to anything.....
Humor by Fred Timmons
Local school board is decided whether to require school age kids to wear masks in school. Just think about kids in elementary school wearing masks and the teacher saying things like "Please don't snap Billy's mask in his face," "You should not be using your mask as a slingshot, please put it back on your face." "Please don't chew on your mask." "I know the inside of your mask is wet - you should not lick the inside of it."  
Know Your Grapes by President Elect John Legris
President Elect John Legris is focusing on red wines. Today the Shiraz is featured, originally from the Rhone region of France.  These grapes were brought to South Africa and Australia in the 1830s. In the United States the top producing grapes for Shiraz are grown in Washington state. Currently in the Legris household they are enjoying Riesling wines from the Mosel region of Germany.  They are unpronounceable and difficult to spell except by President Elect John...and perhaps Bruce Richter...
Thank you President Elect John for elevating our knowledge of the history of wines!
No Show Low Drawing Today
We anxiously await the Show Low drawing as soon as our club is able to meet at the Outback Steakhouse!
