THE FACES OF A ROTARY PROGRAM

 

For our program on June 16, Steve Gradick introduced Frank Taylor, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Peachtree City.  Frank gave a wonderful powerpoint presentation on tornadoes and common misconceptions of tornadoes.  He discussed the 5 levels of tornadoes and talked about the history of tornadoes. 

Three Rotarians brought their children, grandchildren and grandchildren's friends with them to Rotary.  What a great family we are!!!!!
