Hi Everyone...here is what happened at the morning meeting:
 
The meeting this morning was all about the first 100 years of our very own Bob Rupp so there were quite a few guests to join in the celebration.  Present were Greg Otsuka who was a guest of Don Schuld plus Nile Kriesel, Ute and Chuck Buehler, Doug Wolff, Bruce Goldstrand and Chuck Bransted.  We also welcomed Mattie Rupp, Bob's wife and Lorna Rupp, Bob's daughter.  Mary Divine from the Pioneer Press was there to interview Bob.
 
Before the birthday bash, Jason reminded us that the Halloween Parade/World Polio Day is Wednesday the 24th.   Also the Board meeting will be this Thursday the 25th at Family Means at 7:00 am...all are welcome to attend.   
 
Our Sergeant at Arms, Rick Robbins was able to collect guite a few happy dollars...lots of birthdays and anniversaries in October .  Plus dollars were donated to honor Bob on his birthday and all the money collected will go to the Foundation in honor of Bob Rupp.

Dave Spencer led the tribute to Bob Rupp on the occasion of  his 100th Birthday.  We started the celebration  by singing Happy Birthday to Bob and presenting him with a birthday cake topped off with a sparkler...very dramatic entrance ( thank you Tim Trooien).  Every table had yummy birthday cupcakes topped with candles...very festive indeed. 
Mary Divine "interviewed" Bob on a variety of topics and Bob, being the journalist that he is, had supplied Mary with a few questions for her to ask him.  He told us of his beginnings as a Nebraska farm boy working his way through college.  He reminisced about his experiences during World War II especially at the Battle of the Bulge and, of course, his life long love of journalism.  Fast forward...he and Mattie settled in Stillwater in 1985 and joined our Club at that time.  When asked about the secret to his long and healthy life he replied that he had no idea what the secret was.  He said he always likes to keep busy and it's important to have something  to get up for every morning.  He still has a few projects in the works and looks forward to doing them.  He told us about his last salmon fishing trip with his son on the western coast of British Columbia where he caught  a 43 pound King Salmon but had to release it as he had already reached his quota of fish...maybe next year he catch it again.  At the conclusion of the interview, Bruce Goldstrand presented Bob with an original 1959 edition of "The Farmer" which was a publication  when Bob was the editor.  Our club also honored him by   making him a Paul Harris Fellow.   It was a lovely celebration and Bob enjoyed every minute of it as did we all!
 
At the conclusion of the meeting we were all sent out, as always...to Be the Inspiration.
