MARCH 17, 2006 VOLUME XXIV NUMBER XXXVII

ATTENDANCE: ASHWAY, BAZ, BURNHAM, DULBERG, GILMARTIN, HAFTER, JASPER, JONES, KENT, KLEIN, LEMKE (presiding), LUCAS, MARCEDO, MURENA RUSSO, SCHLOSS: Visitors, Marie Ashway (wife of Ed), Rob Murena (husband of Dale), Dani Jaramillo, June Fagen . While current Drummer policy is not to list names of members who attend * this editor feels an occasional listing may spur greater attendance * of course this was school vacation week so no fingers are being pointed at absent names.

Today we were at the teen center for a St. Patrick's Day celebration. Former Wilton Rotarian June Fagen stopped in to say hello * a treat to see her * we hope to have her back. She tried to get us on our feet for some Irish dancing * alas * there seemed no talent among the attendees. Speaking of which, the District Conference needs contestants in its talent show - Cape Cod in June.

Announcements * Board meeting March 22. We need a few more for the Sound Tigers game on April 2 (Sunday) to make us a group. District Assembly is April 6 * the club will pay your way. Frank was at the office and unable to report on the PETS weekend. Arlo Guthrie is coming to Bridgeport on April 7. Call John for more information. The New Haven Club is hosting Robert Genuario, chief budget officer in the Rell administration at its meeting on March 21st (lunch-time) at the Q club.

Thanks to Dale and John for organizing the event, together with the corn beef and cabbage, Irish whiskey, Guinness, et al.

See you Friday          Paul
