Cindi Galabota began the meeting with an invocation in the form of a riddle: what is the thing that touches every aspect of your life, and based on the characteristics she enumerated, is essentially the bane of your existence or your salvation?  The answer?  Your attitude.
The sing-along was led again this week by Jesse Formwalt in honor, she noted, of the return of the American citizen North Korean prisoners, “America the Beautiful.” 
Guests in attendance during the meeting included Alan Roth of Pagosa Lakes Property Owners Association, who has been present several times recently, and a travelling Rotarian from Huxley, Texas, Dianne Payne.  Dianne related her Rotary chapter has but 12 members, so she was greatly impressed by the meeting turnout in Pagosa.
John Shepard then took the floor to solicit nominations for 4th of July Parade Grand Marshall.  Nominations should be made this month, he said.
Then Art Benzell contributed information that all youngsters 18 and under would be treated to free breakfast and lunch this summer at the Ross Aragon Community Center, downtown on Hot Springs Boulevard.  The meals will be available Monday-Friday 8:30 to 9:30 am and 11:30 am to 12:30 pm, from June 4 through August 17 (except the July 4th Holiday).
