Finemaster Glenn O’Young first recognized Bruce McCallum, Arcadia Chamber of Commerce’s Citizen of the Year. Bruce is involved in many Arcadia organizations and projects. Arcadia Rotary has long known what an outstanding citizen Bruce is and is happy to join in celebrating his service … along with a fine of $25. Jim Helms earned a related fine of $10 for nominating Bruce.
Brad Miller is responsible for great PR for Arcadia Rotary. An article about Rotary’s project of providing Shelterboxes to Pakistan flood victims, although a bit dated, was just one example and opportunity to fine Brad $20. More currently, Brad and his wife, Julie, traveled to New Zealand. Photos of spectacular scenery and a joint selfie were evidence of their enjoyment and Brad was fined an additional $20.
A newspaper clipping of the Methodist Hospital Foundation’s Thanksgiving Brunch showed two Arcadia Rotarians, Ernie Jensen and Jim Helms. Both are past Chairman of the Foundation and have served on the board. Both were recognized $30 for their community service.
Tom Crosby’s photo with Dick Martinez at a recent Rotary meeting reminded Finemaster Glenn of a familiar photo of comedians Cheech and Chong. Comparing the photos, the club agreed and both were fined $15 plus the weave and brownies for a total of $25.
Further on the theme of celebrity doppelgangers … A photo of John Wilson at the Foothill Boys and Girls Club’s Kentucky Derby event honoring Monrovia’s Mary Ann Lutz along with LA County Supervisor Mike Antonovich was claimed as evidence of John’s likeness to actor Owen Wilson. Although Owen was shown sans shirt in the comparison, the resemblance was striking. Surprisingly, no fine ensued.
