It was a great day in Rotary as we inducted three new members -  Felix Singh, brought to us by Elena of the Santee Rotary club; and Monica Stuck and Yolanda Silva with the Hilton Corporate Membership, joining Joe Kuhn. WELCOME!!
Congratulations to Art on his new home purchase, with Paul's help, and Vicky's help with insurance; and to Barbara on her closing of Double B Ranch in the Columbia River Gorge area
Welcome back to Venky who went to Iceland to see the Northern Lights and to Susan who was visiting Rotary Headquarters in Evanston, IL and her sister in Michigan
Here she is "shaking the hand" of founder Paul Harris and with Mark and 4 Past RI Presidents
Charlotte enjoyed lunch at Viewpoint Brewery with  friends visiting from Norway after a fun hike; Nicole was grateful for apple Care after her phone landed in the water; and we were happy to hear that Patricia has an ablation scheduled next week to relieve back pain 
Vicky reminded members to contribute to Rotary International Annual Fund by April 30 and shared pictures from our first project in El Salvador as a result of funds available through a Foundation Grant - building a school and vocational center. 
And where we continue to help 15 years later
Vicky was recognized by Susan with an Imagine Rotary pin for all her contributions to the club
Art is our new auctioneer extraordinaire as he collected $360 for 3 Ukraine Rotary pins - thank you Venky, Jan & Herb

Jordan Karney Chaim, an art historian and Curator for the Institute of Contemporary Art San Diego, gave an interesting, informative talk about this institution that is in Balboa Park and Encinitas. Their mission is to present experimental art and learning with a mission to question everything - and their focus next year will be on the interface of art and science using human data. They also have a sculpture trail overlooking the San Elijo Lagoon that is inspired by the coastal landscape.  A good time to visit ICS North will be on April 29 at Casa de Amistad Gala
