Norman Sooner Rotary once again celebrated with song and laughter as we welcomed back our roaming Rotarian, Bob Usry from his annual mission trip to Africa. Grover led the club in his original rendition of "Home, Home on the Range" with accompaniment of howling Rotarians.

Announcements included updates of Community Service projects at Food and Shelter for Friends and the Seniors Mini Book Drive. The club was reminded of the Membership Drive and the drawing for an IPAD for those who bring guests.

Opportunities to sign up for the dinner honoring the incoming Rotary International President, Ron Burton on March 3 were given. Everyone was encouraged to participate in the once in a lifetime event.  

We also had the honor and privilege of celebrating the introduction of Norman’s Philharmonic Orchestra Director, Richard Zielinski. Professor Zielinski recalled the beginnings of the orchestra and Norman’s very own song composed by Libby Larsen. He explained that Norman is a unique community where faith, education, community and family are core commitments and the perfect place for investing in the present to change the future.
