The Rotary Club of
San Rafael Harbor
The Harbor Beacon
Harbor bought a great "DG gift" ...the Terra Linda club's basket.
Of course, we set the bar high.  The prior highest basket had been auctioned for $600 at Half Moon Bay.  Our winning streak didn't last, though, because that night, our basket was sold at RCTL for fifteen dollars more...and then, not to be outdone, the RCME upped their basket bid to $1,200.   As President Murphy exclaimed " I would hate to be the last Club the DG visits as it may get a little expensive surprise. Well it is all good as the money goes to the Foundation and the winning Bidders get Paul Harris points."

President Hugh Murphy is preparing our surprise gift for Jeri..a "living landscape" for her wall.
Last Pan Am flight out of Vietnam...gripping story
Pamela Borgfeldt Taylor  was Pan Am Stewardess that was on the last plane out of Saigon Vietnam during the war: a mercy flight to evacuate the Pan Am employees stranded in Saigon.  Several of us were using the napkins to wipe our eyes as she described the young children, teenage Am-Asian boy, and Vietnamese workers who desperately wanted to leave South Vietnam.  Hours before the fall of Saigon, the Boeing 747 managed to take off with almost 500 passengers.  Their plane was blocked by a fighter that had crashed on the runway, but pilot Bob Berg got South Vietnamese bulldozers to clear the runway and they took off, amid machine guns firing at them, on April 30th, 1975.    For those readers who were unable to attend but want to review her riveting story, a version appears here:
