Recognitions – October 6, 2017

Deputy Finemaster Dick Martinez led the club in the latest round of “Arcadia Rotary What’s My Line?” with mostly successful results:

Ray Bushnell and Mike Hoey started us off on the right foot by both knowing the other’s business:  Ray’s business, RBI Systems, Inc., provides direct mail and data processing services, Mike is a Doctor of Optometry and owns Hoey Optometry.  Neither were fined since they provided the correct answers.

Next, Gil Stromsoe and Frank Hall continued the streak:  Gil is a CPA and partner of Mark Schaefer Associates (and prepares Frank’s tax returns), Frank is a retired banker and corporate fundraiser, currently President of Arcadia Rotary Foundation.  Again, no fines for either one.

Eric Barter and Jack McRae were close:  Jack correctly identified Eric’s business as bail bondsman with Bad Boy’s Bail Bonds – he works with criminal defense attorneys, while Eric got partial credit for his guess of police officer and attorney.  Jack is an attorney and also a reserve deputy sheriff.  Eric’s fine was also partial at $10.

Bob Harbicht and Mike Ojeda landed a little farther apart:  Bob guessed Mike was in the escrow business – Mike’s in the title insurance business with Equity Title Corp, and Mike correctly identified Bob as former Arcadia mayor, but missed his being retired from owning a marketing research company.  Both were fined $25.

Last up, Ken Chan and David Freeman finished off with style:  Ken correctly stated David’s businesses as tennis bum, real estate attorney, and board member on the Arcadia Board of Realtors.  David, also correctly according to Ken, knew that Ken is a magician extraordinaire and a teacher of magic.
