Five Rotarians in attendance
had missed meetings. David
Grayson, Jim Ellison, Erik Fix,
Tracy Martorana and Larry
Boylan all had valid make-ups
or put up green cards.
Our fining session started
with Jim Ellison. Jim is a
huge supporter of the Bishop
Masereka Christian Foundation
and they recently announced
the vaccination of over 4,000
children in Uganda in 2013. Mary
Margaret paid for her new status
as the go-to canning teacher being
recommended by the Genesee
County Cornell Cooperative
Extension. Her classes have
also been added to the County
Chamber of Commerce calendar.
Larry Boylan took a spin on the
Rotary Trivia Wheel for failing to
correctly name the three countries
still considered endemic with
polio. Tracy Martorana was
charged a few dollars for a picture
of the beautiful pashmina scarf
she lost out on at our Rotary
Christmas Party. And Cindy
Bishop was fined for her habit
of pocket dialing people, even
at 5 am. She did explain that she
doesn’t sleep with her phone, but
rather “hits it accidentally” when
reaching for the alarm clock.
With the fining session over,
Bob Boyce introduced our guest
speaker, Dr. James Sunser of
