President Jerry Sheehan gave a rousing first meeting as Club President, with a film clip of former Int’l President Cliff Doucherman’s (1992-1993) “Unwritten History of Rotary”. Question: Was Nero really a Rotarian?  This was a great, humorous presentation, and a good indication that our club is looking forward to a great year under Jerry’s direction. (“Bow, Jay Leno!)
