Today’s Program – Business Meeting

Rotary Last Week, November 10th

“Don’t know why, ain’t no sun up in the sky, Stormy weather”….

Perhaps the author of this line should have consulted with Jim Witt, WHUD Meteorologst . who was our guest speaker at the meeting. He could have probably given him some directions on Pacific Decadal Oscillation with resulting El Nino’s, causing east coast storms this coming winter. Jim, as usual, gave a great program, and sold some of his long range forecast calendars for the “Hope For Youth Foundation.”

Phil Brillante’s Safety News

While tipping his hat to Jim Witt for his forecasts, Phil reminded us that the “Interact” program at O’Neill H.S. is looking for new recruits. (Welcome back, Phil.)

So buy a new jacket and wear it to church!”
