In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…"

As the autumn leaves painted the sky, and the clouds meandered about, Lakewood Rotarians gathered and laughed, again. President Gayle Selden rang the bell to order in a timely manner and ensured we paid attention to all of the  minute details.
Jumping Jehosophat! Gayle started off at 12:30, balls to the wall and armed to the teeth with her presidential gobbledygook. By hook or by crook, she showed us her moxie by once more trying to lick us into shape.
      President Gayle Selden is back! Let the fun begin! After Gayle activated the gong and the meeting was called to order, the club members stood.
