Today's "Who Am I" talk was by one of our long-time member Jan Parsons. Since our featured speaker was sick she had ample time to delve into her story. It was fun and exciting to hear her early entry into Rotary at age 16. She received a letter from the local Rotary club and that inspired her to get involved. She grew up with skiing being a big part of her life. Once she received a 6-month pass to Europe and she skied all over Europe and tried to live on $10 per day! Lunch was usually candy bar & beer :-). She would stay at places where dinner and breakfast were free.
 
Then she got married and stayed in Morocco for 2 years. Did her Bachelors in Business. Then in 1989 joined Securities Pacific Bank, which later merged with Bank of America. Around that time she got re-introduced to Rotary. She was with BoA for 27 years. She retired on April Fool's Day :-). She loves the arts, classical music and travel.
 
FAVORITE MOVIE: It's a Wonderful Life - A 1946 American Christmas Fantasy comedy-drama.
 
MORNING RITUALS: Get her coffee, do some reading, grab the news, play Sudoku.
 
WHAT WILL HER BIG BILLBOARD SIGN SAY: Love is all you need and God is love!
