            Who knew that Friday the 13th would be an auspicious day for Lakewood Rotary?  Gayle Selden, our new president and known leader of the incredible auction this year, opened the meeting with enthusiastic energy and her usual welcoming smile. And the meeting began.
Just when you thought you had seen the last of him after the “mic drop” the previous week, soon-to-be-past-President (again) Don Daniels opened the meeting at his usual time – whenever he wants. Actually, the attempted opening was delayed due to technical troubles with the audio.
On June 29, Don Daniels served his last day as Lakewood Rotary President, and we at the Rotary Club of Lakewood are quite thankful for his service to the Club. His alter ego, Diego, presided over the meeting. Diego informed us that he would perform a “magic trick” at the end of the meeting and disappear. It should be noted that we had a special meal on Diego’s dime. Rather than pot roast we had tacos. They were quite flavorful.
Time is our greatest asset. But time is unforgiving. June 22 marked the second-to-last meeting of President Don Daniels.
