A star-studded cast, an award winning script, a million dollar view, delicious food and beverages, and a very good-natured Past President made for a fabulous debunking at the home of Marv and Bonnie Bamburg on Sunday evening. Peter Allen scripted a wonderful play based on “Alice in Wonderland” in which Past-President Janine was put on trial by Jennifer “Queen of Hearts” Carauddo at a “Tee” Party hosted by Peter “Mad Hatter” (“Please, just call me Mad.”) Allen.
Janine was accused, among other things, of causing overcrowding at meetings by recruiting so many new Rotarians, and even celebrating the procreation of future Rotarians! Janine, always the good sport, even had a speaking part in the play, which was sprung on her when she arrived at the party. And without any rehearsal or prior warning, she pulled off her role with great aplomb.
Janine was presented with a “Past President” pin and wall plaque by current President John Shannon, recognizing her very successful tenure as our club’s President. Janine said she had a great year because she always felt like she was simply doing things with her friends. Janine will continue to serve the club in many ways as she remains on our Board of Directors for 2014-2015.
