NOTE EARLY START TO MONDAY'S MEETING
Chris Patterson aims to help you to understand one of the most detrimental problems facing business today (that you may not even be aware of). He says he will break down time tested best practices to help you solve this problem. In a nutshell, "learn one quote that can dramatically change the course of any company culture, relationship or organization. You will walk away with a clear path to positively influence the most important people in your life."
Patterson is the founder and CEO of Interchanges – a Jacksonville strategic business growth agency which helps companies grow their revenues. His company is now in its 16th year of operations and lays claim of generating over $1.2 billion in revenue for its clients....
The best girls basketball team in the nation joins us for lunch and honors on Monday. The Lady Trojans, as they are known, are the pride of Ribault High School and the City of Jacksonville.
The Trojans won their first season-ending national championship last month defeating Riverdale Baptist (Mary) 75-49 in the Dick’s Sporting Goods High School Nationals at Madison Square Garden in New York City. They returned home in the midst of parades, celebrations, and recognition from all corners of the city.
The Roboteers Who Came to Lunch
Willie Boggan, STEM teacher at Matthew W. Gilbert School, introduces his robotics club members who joined us for this meeting.
Last year our Rotary Club joined with the Jacksonville Children's Commission as a major partner in support and funding of the STEM program at Matthew W. Gilbert school. The specific project was the STEMM Club which goes by the name of Lego Cops. The focus of the club is to teach and experience the developing technical world of robotics. In December the club -- which meets four days a week -- competed in the First U.S. Lego Robotics Competition.

Week 44 beginning May 2
Since July of last year, a dedicated group of District 6970 Rotarians have been working on a new and exciting network and fellowship opportunity for the Rotary World. I am pleased to officially announce the formation of Rotary’s newest fellowship Rotary on Pins Fellowship designed to engage new generations and Rotary youth programs via Rotary pins and memorabilia. The effort was led by Past President Ed Book (Downtown Gainesville) and supported by Past District Governor Wes Eubank.
There are currently over 60 fellowships within Rotary. A list can be found on Rotary.org. Information about this new fellowship and other fun programs will be available at our District Conference & Assembly House of Friendship.
Ninety-five year old Don Jones was honored in mid-April by the Rotary Club of Palatka for his 61 years of perfect attendance. The club recognized Don with a special dinner meeting attended by a host of Rotary dignitaries.
RI President Ravi Ravindran sent a personal note of congratulations delivered by District Governor Fel Lee.
Don told a newspaper reporter that the secret of keeping his unbroken chain of meeting attendance was to make sure he made up missed home club meetings by attending makeup meetings wherever he traveled.
