Rotary Club of Glendale (Noon)

January 29th meeting minutes

The meeting was called to order by President Elizabeth Manasserian at 12:30
Elizabeth had the honor of inducting our newest member, Edwin Voskanian. Edwin a realtor and specializes in commercial development and residential real estate. WELCOME, EDWIN to the best Rotary Club in Glendale!
Today we celebrated  the last meeting of Rotary Heritage Month by having our own member, Cal Devnich, describe his family's moves from their native Ukraine across the Atlantic Ocean to re-settle in North Dakota with stops in Canada before eventually reaching Glendale. Cal was able to eloquently describe his family's economic hardships and challenges on the journey  and their eventual realization of "the American dream". Cal reminded us that America is a "nation of immigrants" and with dedication and hard work "these immigrants" can continue to make the United States of America the greatest country in the world. Thanks Cal for such a pleasant discussion
