Under the banner of “Service Above Self” we are grateful for the fellowship, friendship and community of Rotary.

Ann asked for advice of Kit Bowerman(retired veterinarian)  in defining the term “Dog Years”. Although he was wearing his cat shirt (WSU Cougs), he shared his immense knowledge of dogs with us.  Dog Years are one year to every 7 years of a human. We clapped to congratulate Kit on passing ten (10) dog years. (he turned 70 this week)
