Meeting Recap 05/24/17
The Rotary Club of Palmdale conducted their weekly meeting at Sizzler’s Restaurant in Palmdale on 24 May 2017.  The meeting was called to order by President Chuck Church at 6:35 PM.  Members in attendance were: Tina Borzage, Sharon Freeman, David Maddock, Sam Garcia, Janice Garcia and Chuck Church.   Everyone enjoyed dinner.  The formal meeting began at 6:45.   
The first order of business was to discuss the Children’s Event at Ocotillo Elementary School on May 18th at 1:00 PM.  Sharon, Chuck and Janice attended the event.  The event was very successful.  Over 100 kids were entertained by Marcie the Bubble Girl.  She drew OH’s and Awe’s from the crowd as she started her routine.  Marcie started with small bubble tricks and displays and gradually escalated to bubbles measuring three feet in diameter. 
Kids from the audience were asked to help out on stage as the program progressed. Marcie’s final display was to fully engulf the kids in a balloon.  The kids loved the performance and they got a bubble crown before returning to their classrooms.  For the children, this was a stress free fun time in which the children were able to interact with the Marcie on stage. 
The second item of business was to discuss the Bobby Oh concert.  Several members attended and the kids from Antelope Elementary School performed very well. 
The final item of discussion was the upcoming Demotion Party on June 24, 2017 at Sharon Freeman’s home.  The menu was reviewed: Pork ribs, burgers and brats will be the main entre selections. pork & beans and potato salad will be the additional items.  There will also be desert.  Sharon updated her list of who would provide each item.  It was decided not to purchase food yet, since we don’t know how many people are coming to the event.  Quantities will be updated later in June.
