Windmill for February 16, 2012
Thursday, February 16, what a beautiful Westwood day! We were met by greeters PP Bob Wessling and PP Stephen Day. PP Eric Loberg led the Pledge of Allegiance, and Rev. John Woodall gave us a great invocation as only a professional of his caliber can.

We had no visiting Rotarians, but we did have a guest, Peter Clinco, the owner of the newly-opened Skylight Restaurant. It’s located on the northwest corner of Glendon and Lindbrook in our beloved Westwood Village—the site of Wil Wright’s, for all you old-timers.

At the head table were our greeters, PPs Day and Wessling, and President-Elect Nominee Mark Rogo, President Ed Jackson, our speaker Dr. Craig Fox, and Jack Paul, our third-quarter program director. For announcements, it was reported that longtime member Gene Prindle passed away on February 14.

Rotary’s 107th birthday is February 23. John Heidt will be celebrating that day by feeding the hungry. Talk to John about that if you want to help.

The Westwood Auxiliary will be having their fundraising treasure auction on March 14 at the home of Roz and Don Nelson. The auctioneer is the one and only Don Nelson, who will ensure that no one leaves empty-handed! Everyone is invited for a great time and a great cause.

We just completed our art, music and speech contest on the University High School campus this past Friday, February 17. It was a great success. The winners will participate in the district-wide competition on March 3 and 4. See the District 5280 webpage for more info. We should be able to meet our winners at our March 1 meeting, so everyone should come to listen to what undoubtedly will be the winning speech.

We want to thank all our judges: PP Chris Gaynor, who will be coaching our speech contest winner to district-wide victory; Athena Jackson, who headed the art contest; PE Dwight Heikkila; Karla Nunfio; Steve Goldstein; President Ed and Nina Jackson. Thanks also to Peter More, our official photographer who documented the contest, and teachers and administrators from University and Marymount High Schools, who helped make the competition a success. Everyone had fun, including the media, the students and Rotarians and non-Rotarians alike.

Jack Paul introduced our speaker, Dr. Craig Fox of the Anderson School of Management. He is a specialist in the mechanics of decision-making. He gave a great talk on how we can make good decisions. President Ed could sure have used Craig’s wisdom at the beginning of his Rotary year. The only question we have now is, how well does Dr. Fox’s system work in Vegas?
