A PRETTY GOOD ATTENDANCE AGAIN TODAY FOR THE MEETING AND SPAGETTI LUNCH.   BACK AFTER A LONG FLORIDA VISIT, SEMI-RETIRED ROTARIAN FLORIAN STEFFEN (HE WILL CONTINUE TO HAVE SOME DUTIES AT M-S-B) AND BACK AFTER THE LONG INCOME TAX SEASON, JOHN GILROY.    ABSENT AND ON ASSINGNMENT WAS PRESIDENT SCOTT WARREN.   
THE GUEST SPEAKER WAS TREVIS MAYFIELD OF MAQUOKETA, THE NEW OWNER/PUBLISHER OF THE NEWSPAPERS IN MAQUOKETA, BELLEVUE AND
DEWITT.
TREVIS WAS THE GUEST TODAY OF ROTARIAN DOUG MELVOLD (RIGHT) WHOSE FAMILY SOLD THE PAPERS TO THE MAYFIELDS ABOUT 7 MONTHS AGO.   HE TOLD ABOUT HIS PAST AND PLANS FOR THE PAPERS, STRESSING THE IMPORTANCE OF A GOOD STAFF.    I SUBSCRIBE TO ALL 3 PAPERS AND HAVE NOTICED SOME GOOD CHANGES AND ALL 3  LOOK GOOD AND SEEM TO BE DOING WELL WITH ADS.
BOTH DOUG AND TREVIS FORGOT TO INTRODUCE NANCY
MAYFIELD WHO IS VERY MUCH INVOLVED WITH THE PUBLICATION OF THE 3 PAPERS.   MAYBE SHE CAN COME BACK AGAIN SOMETIME AND TELL HER SIDE OF THE BUSINESS.   OUR 6 OR 7 FEMALE MEMBERS WOULD ESPECIALLY
LIKE THAT.    ONE THING IS CERTAIN!   NANCY LOVES SPAGETTI AND TREVIS
DOESN'T.
