We had three guests today, Visalia School district superintendent Kirk Shrum, who was our program, with him was Andre Pecina, who, based on the information on his business card says he is an Administrator, communications, strategy, and outreach for the district. Also with us was president Tony’s wife, Nancy.

Winners and Losers
$5 went to Lion Roy who donated it to the Eye Foundation.
Lotto tickets went to Lion Pat.
Lion Craig drew for the coveted white marble but came up with another color that did not net him anything.
Visalia Unified superintendent Kirk Shrum was our program today, and he talked about his coming to Visalia from Georgia and his vision for the district. It was an informative program. It is interesting to note that when he went looking for a new job, he selected districts where he thought he could make a difference, not just come into a position but work to build and make it better.
Lion Craig draws for the white marble but comes up with another color, and no money.
Lion Betty points to Lion Pat as today’s winner of the Lotto ticket.
