Don Doubledee introduced Scott Collins, the MB City Manager, who is as of today, a member of our club.   He went to Lolos last night for orientation to learn more about what Rotary is and what is expected of him as a member.  Scott received a pin and a packet and thanked us for inviting him to join our club.  He told us a little about his past history, his job and his family.  
 
 
Pete introduced our program speaker, Bryan Schwartz, who emceed our program today.   We played a game of “Hot Seat” with Pete.  Pete asked several members questions starting with Steve Knuckles -”where do you see yourself in five years”.  Next Scott Collins - “what will it say on your tombstone”.  Lorraine’s question was “Why did you join Rotary”?  Gary Owens question was “How many years have you been in Rotary?”
 
Now it was time to ask Pete questions starting with his lovely wife, Kathi, whose question to Pete was “What is a little known fact about you that you would like to share”?  Mary was next - “Who would you consider to be the boss of your family?” was her question.  Scott’s question was “Did you ever get in a fight with one of your students?”  Tom Hay had a question as well “what happened to the printing program that used to be in high schools”?  Michael Shaffran was next with a question about the Indianapolis 500.    Heidi asked “What do you and the Academy Awards have in common?”  Don Doubledee asked Pete “How long have you been keeping bees?  And how many times have you been stung?”  Heidi asked about Pete’s family....in addition to the bees, cats and dogs.  Mike asked where he met his wife and where did they go on their first date?  Jamie asked Pete “Do you have any Trekkie costumes?    I don’t have room for all the answers ......you just had to be there.  It was a really fun meeting!!!
 
Jamie won the 50/50....Hope to see everyone on Friday night at the View at 5:30 for Pete’s BEEMOTION.
 
The question is not “who will let me...the question is who can stop me”.
