Meeting Highlights March 20th
Thought of the day: “Do the best you can until you know better. Then, when you know better, do better.” -Maya Angelou
Sgt. At arms was a total mystery; so much so, that nobody showed up! President Neal and spittoon carrier Greg Barstad made a valiant effort collecting monies after a unanimous vote that it was OK to skip it. Everyone pitched in a couple of bucks and we were underway. Ben Tuttle was given a standing ovation because this was his last meeting. Ben, you will be missed VERY MUCH!
Last Week’s Speaker:  Todd Weber gave us yet another fantastic presen-tation about Colorado river explorers! Many guests of Rotarians came to enjoy Todd’s educational talk. Wearing a replica of John Wesley Powell’s typical outfit, Todd shared models of boats and native deer figurines he made. Starting in 900 AD people have been floating down the Colorado. John Wesley Powell explored “terra incognita” on a sternwheeler after losing his arm in a civil war battle Upon entering the Grand Canyon he said “We shrink into insignificance”. Many explorers’ missions were to find the confluences of the great rivers of the west attempting to discover new or better routes for trade; including a possible train in 1889 with Brown & Stanton. Many of these missions were ill-fated and landmarks along the river give a testament to the lives lost exploring the river. The first watercolors of the Canyon were made by Bavarian artist Baldwin Mulhousen. These were thought to have been lost in WW11 destruction but were found behind wallboards in a New York apartment! Photog-raphers also explored the canyon, including the famous Kolb Brothers who photographed the canyon extensively and ran a successful portrait and movie business at the Canyon. The Nevilles ran Neville’s Expe-ditions in the 1940s  for tourists. They would use carrier pigeons to report their status to the newspapers back east. It was the first known use of Twitter. In the 1950’s Georgie White began her river guide business, Royal River Rats. She used WW11 pontoon boats lashed together to take 40+ passengers at a time down the Colorado. Several adventurous souls have swum (swam?) the Colorado as well, Beer and Dagett in 1955, and then 3 women, 300 miles in 2001.

Good morning Sun-upians …. Thank you all for the rousing send off for Ben Tuttle … special thanks to George Steiner and Val Ripley for coordinating  the send-off reception at the Phippen.  Thanks also to Bud Ackerman, Dwayne Warrick and Stan Steiner for stepping up to begin filling the huge vacancy in club services and activities occasioned by Ben’s departure.  Only one more week remains to take advantage of the “Let’s Make a Deal” offer of matching Paul Harris contributions.  Art Harrington reports a good club response to date.  Double-Down Casino Night is also fast approaching .. Whew
