We were pleased to welcome George Green as our guest speaker on August 18th. George is the CEO and Artistic Director of The Public Theater of San Antonio. George updated us on the challenges and accomplishments that the theater has been experiencing during the COVID-19 pandemic. As the saying goes, “the show must go on”. George talked about the upcoming 2020-2ONE season at The Public Theater, which will all consist of one person shows in order stop the spread of COVID-19. George showed us a video showing a summary of all the upcoming shows which will start in September.
One of our participants for the meeting was Tom Spencer. Tom is a friend of Dan Clark. Dan met Tom when he was visiting England a couple of years ago. Tom is also a Rotarian. He is a member of the Rotary Club of Aberdeen Balgownie in Scotland. While our meeting started at 6:00 p.m. local time in San Antonio, it was midnight in Aberdeen. Thank you Tom for joining us from across the pond.

We were pleased to welcome our friend and Honorary San Antonio Northeast Rotarian Chelsea Torres as our guest speaker on September 1st. Chelsea is a journalist and reporter at KRIS TV 6 in Corpus Christi. Many of you know that Chelsea took care of us when our club used to meet at The Lion & Rose in The Forum. Chelsea gave us presentation on what she does at the television station. She actually came to us via Zoom right after she finished filing a report on the beach in Corpus Christi where a pipeline had
broken earlier in the day.
Thank you Chelsea for a very interesting program.
We were very happy to welcome Madison High School Interact Club president Miranda Peralta, vice-president Marisol Wheeler, and school sponsor Janeen Downen as our guest speakers on October 13th.
They gave us an update on all the events and projects that the Madison Interactors have been able to accomplish since the beginning of the school year. It is amazing all the things that these young adults can do, especially with a worldwide pandemic going on.
