Paul started the New Year with the following Invocation
As the Calendar turns and another new year begins,
Let us be thankful for our Rotary friends and the changes our service can bring.
Let us rise to the challenges given
Let us aim to give more to the cause
Let us continue to make the world better
Even if no one gives us applause. 
Bill led the meeting as Vicky had jury duty; Venky joined us from India; everyone congratulated Lou on starting his 90th year; Paul celebrated his & Mary's 43rd Anniversary; Patricia was happy to be house sitting with Herbie cat; Art was happy to walk along the lagoon with a beer in hand from Viewpoint; and Happy Birthday wishes to Bill on his January 11 birthday
