President Ces Butner called our 5,327th “Civic Thursday” meeting in order and welcomed all of our Zoom guests.
Rotarian Abel Guilian shared Barak Obama's quote for 'Thought For The Day', "Democracy doesn't work if we constantly demonize each other. For progress to happen, we have to listen to each other and see ourselves in each other, and fight for our principles, but also fight to find the common ground, no matter how elusive that may seem."
President Cess announced that 2 new members are going to be inducted into Oakland Rotary Club today. Rotarian Isaac Kos-Read introduced Zeydi Gutierrez while Rotarian David Kirsten introduced Nancy Williams to the club.
Rotarian Winter Williams introduced our speaker for the Civic Thursday, Terrence Brewer - award-winning Jazz Artist, record producer, concert performer, studio musician, bandleader, music educator, instructor, lecturer, and workshop facilitator. Terrence gave an amazing music performance and shared details of how the last 10 months in pandemic have been for an artist, musicians, and educators of music as him.
