Next Monday the Culver City Rock & Mineral Club’s program will feature its ever-popular Silent Auction. Shop Chair Bruce Mensinger will select “good stuff” from the Lapidary Shop’s donated materials, including rocks, minerals, slabs, etc. The items will all be on display and each will have a silent bid sheet. No one’s going to know exactly when the signal to end the bidding will be, but when it happens and your bid is the highest one listed, you win! The CCR&MC meeting begins at 7:30 p.m. in the Multi-Purpose Room of the Veterans Memorial Building, and guests are always welcome.
In the spirit of the “Pass it On” Annual Support Campaign theme, Culver-Palms Family YMCA Exec Darlene Kiyan was telling fellow Rotarians about last Thursday’s Campaign Kickoff Mixer and thanked the members of the Club for theirongoing support of the Y. According to Reciprocator editor Dannie Cavanaugh, “Darlene then told us about a girl who had waited for years to join the Youth in Government program but could not raise the $1,000 needed to participate. Chuck Perelman immediately said that he would donate $100 towards her fees and in an ‘I am Spartacus’ moment, nine more Rotarians volunteered to give $100 each enabling the young woman to be a Youth & Government delegate.” That’s the spirit!!
