Meeting Recap 01/25/17
The Rotary Club of Palmdale conducted their weekly meeting at Sizzler’s Restaurant in Palmdale on 25 January 2017.  The meeting was called to order by President Chuck Church at 6:35 PM.  Members in attendance were: Sharon Freeman, Sam Garcia, David Maddock, Laureano Flores, Chuck Church and guest speaker Donna Termeer.  Everyone enjoyed dinner.  The formal meeting began at 7:15.   
Guest speaker Donna Termeer (Senior Field Director for Supervisor Kathryn Barger) spoke to the Club about her new assignment and what lies ahead for the Antelope Valley.  Although well known in the AV, Donna is still meeting with all the agencies in the AV to coordinate their goals and concerns to report back to Supervisor Barger.  Donna indicated that with Supervisor Barger being the only conservative on the Board of Supervisors, it may be difficult to achieve large break throughs immediately.  Being in a 4-1 minority, the victories will be small and selective in the beginning.  The Club presented their views on several subjects pertaining to the AV.  The Club asked Donna to watch for areas in which Palmdale Rotary could help the community.  Our focus has mostly been on youth oriented projects, but we are open to ideas where we can help out the community.
Sharon Freeman reported that she had drafted the letter to the Keppel School District, forwarded it to Chuck for review, incorporated updates and forwarded it to the District.
