Walking into the 501 at the University Club you would immediately recognize the beautiful Christmas
music from a piano.  That piano was being played by former president Doug Hartford.
President Dave Dominic called the meeting to order and welcomed Rotarians at 5:25pm.
All participated in the Rotary 4-way test.  Introduction of visiting Rotarians and guests
included 25 Saint Paul Rotarians.  Guests included Virgil Thomas, guest of Jim Miller;
John Purvis, visiting Rotarian; Dan Powers, husband of Dion Powers.
Deb Katzmark introduced her husband Jack. 
President Dave introduced the program.  Three Saint Paul Rotarians:  Michael-jon Peace,
Susan Rostkoski, and Christopher Taykalo.  These three Rotarians spoke about their recent
vacation trip to Belgium and Amsterdam.  A slide show of their trip to Europe included
over 20 slides.  They talked about their visiting museums and restaurants and dinners
with friends.
President Dave handled the Ugly Sweater contest.  The winner was Brianna Haglin.
President Dave did not enter the Ugly Sweater contest but he did not disappoint. He
deserved the number one prize for his special green Christmas sweater with bulbs and
green tinsel attached.  Happy dollars were presented. 
Beth Naughton announced her retirement from the Minnesota History Society.
The meeting was adjourned at 6:20pm with a total of 30 people in attendance.
