Rotary International has changed its process for counting makeups if you miss a meeting. Instead of being limited to making up the meeting other ways within two weeks of the missed meeting, you can make up the missed meeting any time within the current fiscal year.

Pete Walters had the cover of the Rotarian from 100 years ago, Albert ‘Bert’ Adams was the newly named Rotary International president for 1919-1920.

Dan DeDona advised Battle of the Minds tickets are available at meetings and online. Sponsors for BoM auction items are being sought.

Rick Boyer gave us an update of our club’s history beginning in 1956.

Members with August birthdays and start dates as Rotarians received cupcakes.

Last Week’s Program
John Irwin works at The Record Herald. He writes, manages its website, social platforms, and photo content, and reviews obituaries before they’re printed. He’s married to Jacquie, is an avid runner, golfer, and fisherman. Welcome, John!

Tuesday July 30th

Local cave rescue expert, Pat Minnick, provided an in-depth review of the Thai soccer team, one year ago. They entered the cave June 23, about a week before the expected onset of the monsoon rains. But nature had other plans. Eventually trapped nine chambers in, the first didn't emerge until July 8th, and the final ones until the 10th.

8-10,000 people played some part in the operation. Low oxygen levels, lack of food, no sanitation, one underwater section was 1,000 feet long, communication could only extend 3 chambers in, and the kids couldn't swim. One rescuer lost his life, but every member of the team was saved. Clearly a miracle.
