Rotarians in the news with Dr. Roger Breslow: 
Before the Dr's presentation of "Rotarians in the News"  he told DGE Dana that he didn't know the words to the song for beans.  And here is how it goes:   oops.......I didn't get all that.  Anyway, on Facebook, the good Doctor saw this:  That Linda Iannone had met up with Rodney Marsalis, drinks, dinner,  photo op.....
and that Mary Lou-you-know-who had this famous quote: "No matter how cold it is down here, people are sleeping with their fans on".
Thank you Dr. Breslow.

Today's Program:
Today we heard from Daniel Shumway of Newport, who was introduced by beer sommelier Jerry Kraus.  Dan is a local author who has written several books on the history of local breweries in and around Central New York and especially the Breweries of Utica. Dan was accompanied by his wife, Barbara and brought a great display of antique cans and bottles.  A very interesting program!  Thanks to our Rotary program committee!
