Twilight welcomed 2019 with our first meeting of the year on January 9th.  We opened the meeting with our famous toast, "To the best time of the day... Twilight!" and learned about seven New Year traditions around the world.
 
Donna Bell provided a lovely inspirational moment and Billie Sue Records led the flag salute.  PP Kat Clowes let everyone in song.  Our Famous Rotarian was Sir Winston Churchill and we had three members who shared their "happiness" with Happy Buck donations.
 
Saturday, April 6 is "Rotarian at Work" Day and PP Robin Paggi would like suggestions for a service project.  We have District Mid-Terms on Saturday, January 26, the All-Club Luncheon on Thursday, March 7 and BLE on Tuesday, March 12, so be sure to mark those on your calendar!
 
There wasn't a formal program/presentation, but instead, Prez Amy provided a bowl of questions that was passed around and answered by everyone.  No worries, though, we'll be back to our 'regularly scheduled program' next week (Jan 16) with Cheryl Scott from KEDC.
 
The December 19th meeting was conducted by PDG Jim Bell with programs by Doc Erwin, Superintendent of Bakersfield City School District and Frances Klingenberger, member of the Peace Corps.  This was our last meeting for 2019 and, as usual, lots of fun!
 
 

What a great Rotary meeting on December 5 at Mount Vernon Elementary School.

First, we had a board meeting, then a performance by the 5th and 6th-grade choir, followed by a service project preparing Christmas cards for soldiers recently returned from Afghanistan and then our annual ugly sweater contest (with dance-off).

Here are some images of the festivities:

Great meeting on November 28 at The Mark, with Past-President Robin staging a temporary coup, I mean covering for President Amy.  Lois Henry shared about BizFed that brings together associations and employers, large and small to share information, expertise, connections and research.  It's mission is to strengthen the voice of business in the Central Valley.
 
Twilight also inducted (thanks Tony for handling the official duties) two new members:  Billie Sue Records and Troy Goodban.  We look forward to getting to know both of these new Rotarians and are excited about the enthusiasm they have for Rotary!
 
Don't forget that we'll be at Mt. Vernon Elementary School on Wednesday, December 5 for our annual "Ugly Sweater Party" as getting a good dose of Yuletide Cheer with a performance by the Mt. Vernon School Choir.  Additionally, we'll be helping the students to create Christmas cards for Robin's nephew's Army Platoon while drinking some hot cocoa and eating yummy cookies.   BE SURE TO JOIN US!
