AUGUST 3, 2021 ROTARY IN REVIEW: Bradshaw Roast/Toast
A good time was had by all at the roast/toast for Past President Jason Bradshaw on Tuesday evening at the University Club. The evening started with drinks in the main bar – cocktails appropriately named for the occasion – The Brea,The Jason, The Zoom, and The St Paul Rotary Punch.  This was followed by a wonderful spread of heavy hors d’oeuvres.
The roast/toast was kicked off by the St Paul Club band playing the newest jazz hit “Mr. Bradshaw” set to the familiar melody “Mr. Sandman”. The entire room, live and zoom, joined in for the rousing rendition. Christopher and Michael-jon then regaled the guests with an original piece in the style of Dr. Seuss describing Jason’s great qualities summed up in one-word quips.
Toasts and roasts came from all over the room. Some more roasty and some more toasty but only one that should have been fined for horrible puns. Thank you, Doug Bruce. A highlight of the evening was the performance by a trio of contortionists from Circus Juventas. They were amazing. I can only hope in another life my body will be able to bend like that. What an impressive group of young people.
The evening was capped off by Past President, Tom Farnham, who summed up all of Jason’s fine attributes – compassion, kindness, flexibility, commitment, confirmed what everyone already knew that Jason had done his father proud, and finally thanked Brea for all she had done in the background to make it all possible.
