The Forecaster for March 26, 2019

This Forecaster actually reports on both our weekly meeting on Tuesday March 19th and our Charter Night banquet on Saturday March 23rd. At our weekly meeting we had announcements about the celebration of the life of Lady Kaye Matthews on March 27th, our 2nd Annual Golf Tourney on April 22nd, and about a fund raiser by the Rotary club of Springfield on April 26th. Our speaker was Maj Gen (USAF Ret) Marty Whelan who gave us a most interesting speech about what has changed in the recent Missile Defense Review. He covered some basic facts of “Missile 101” and told us that international adversaries are constantly improving their missile capabilities and their threats to our space sensors needed for our own missile defense. On Saturday evening over 150 of us and our guests had an enjoyable social hour and dinner celebrating our 91st year since being chartered in 1928. Our program included a range of award recognitions – 41 various Paul Harris awards (including 6 for PH+6 as Major Donors) as well as other 3 club specific awards. All in all this was a very rewarding and enjoyable Charter Night.
