ON THE LIGHTER SIDE
As a jet was flying over Arizona on a clear day, the copilot was providing his passengers with a running commentary about landmarks over the PA system.
Coming up on the right, you can see the Meteor Crater, which is a major tourist attraction in northern Arizona. It was formed when a lump of nickel and iron, roughly 150 feet in diameter and weighing 300,000 tons, struck the earth 50,000 years ago at about 40,000 miles an hour, scattering white-hot debris for miles in every direction. The hole measures nearly a mile across and is 570 feet deep.
The Blonde lady sitting next to me exclaimed: Wow, look! It just missed the highway!

August is Membership Month — the perfect time to recruit new club members and find ways to get members more involved. Interact, Rotaract, and Rotary clubs are all powered by members. Our clubs thrive when we connect with new friends, welcome new voices at our meetings, and work together to improve life in our communities.
What’s the easiest way to invite new members? Just ask! At your next club meeting, brainstorm a compelling answer to the question, “What is Interact?” or “What is Rotaract?” or “What is Rotary?” so that a prospective member’s next question will be, “How do I join?”

MOUNT KENYA 2015 ANZAC DAY CLIMB
After the climb and the safari by the ladies we all met up at the Mount Kenya Safari Club on the Equator. This hotel was first built by William Holden the actor. Beautiful way to unwind and rest after the mighty effort we all put into the climb itself.
