BELL RINGERS and Good News
1.  Kramer Herzog returned from 2 months of physical rehab from his skiing accident and from travel to Hawaii where his latest video, for the Kids of Paarl, won top prize.  .   BELL RINGER   Kramer also brought Bev a President's Gift, Hugh a President-Elect gift, and Carola a President-Elect nominee gift from Hawaii!   Cindy Stameroff, CPA and Kris Edwards, CPA, both offered bell ringers because tax season is over!   Your scribe may have missed other "good news" from April because I cannot find my notes for the later meetings.
2.  Chris Major announced his Chess Club is finishing up in one school and he is about to volunteer to teach Chess for a week at Bahia Vista.  
3.  Judi Cooper paid a birthday fine, and 4. Stacie Strassberg paid a fine because she had a great experience singing at Open Mike Night.

Davidson Middle School garden work day
We worked at Davidson Garden instead of meeting at our regular Jackson Cafe!!...the garden is really thriving.   Lori Davis of Sanzuma described the progress toward full organic, sustainable gardening.  Aaron, a sixth grade student, was there to help explain why celery tastes better from one bed than from the other beds.  Then, some of us (your scribe excepted), rolled up our sleeves, stuck on our garden gloves, and pulled weeds and cleaned up.  FUN!.


Working, reviewing, meeting.

Carola Detrick, David Peters (shovelling now), and Jeffrey Allen pulling weeds.

Aaron Hutchinson inspires 5k charity run and other options!
We were inspired by speaker Aaron Hutchinson and happy to see his wonderfully successful 5K Color Run hosted by our own Marin County Rotary Club of Ignacio., in Novato.  Fundraisers are always difficult to plan and having someone like Aaron in your corner seems very helpful.
Jim Carriere's big fish
Greg Williams (Karen Hansen-Thompson's partner) went fishing with Jim Carriere and sent this shot out of Jim and his catch.  KUDOS...another Jimbalya in the works???
1936 letter links between two Harbor members
Video/Documentary Film/Photographer and Harbor Rotary member S.J. (Kramer) Herzog happened to be cleaning his files (New Year's Resolution???) and found the attached letter from Harry Albert to S.J. HERZOG (Kramer's grandfather) asking for his Rotary contribution for the "ROTARY BATHING BEACH FUND", and to please send the contribution to fund chair ROY WILKIE.  Kramer presented the letter (which included the written notation that his $25 donation was paid by check) to fellow member Jeff Allen, who is one of the two current owners of the venerable Minto-Wilkie Insurance Agency (the other being Rotarian John Rickards).
The Rotary Club of San Rafael Harbor meets from 8 to 9 am, Tuesdays, at the Jackson Cafe of Whistlestop Wheels, 930 Tamalpais Avenue, San Rafael CA 94901.  Free parking  is available in the chain-link fenced lot across the street from the Cafe.
