Meeting Recap   

October 21 

Speaker: Mark Johnson

   

Rotary speaker introduction
And the speaker is . . . heading to the front of the room

Invocation - Given by Doug Torbush.   

Guests - Carl Pike, Matt Willett, Cathy Pearson, Princess Wilson, Chad Green, and Nadia Smith.  Thanks to Elliott Augustine for the introductions.

From the Speaker - Scott Thompson introduced our speaker Mark Johnson who is a mentalist. 

Mark kept the Club enthralled with his ability to skirt the borders of magic and prediction.  Most members were baffled by the mental tricks Mark performed. 

He chose two Rotary members who each wrote down a five digit number of their choosing.  A third person added up both numbers.  Mark then wrote the third person's number on a flip chart.

In a second serving of his mental abilities, Mark asked three members to do three different things.  Judy Turner had to identify the name of a close grade school friends.  Elliott Augustine had to jot down the name of a childhood pet.  Past President Dan Coursey was to draw a picture of whatever entered his head.  Mark then identified the name of the person Judy wrote down, the name of Elliott's pet, and drew a picture exactly the same as Dan's.

At the heart of Mark's presentation was the message that we accept the possibility that all things are possible.  Removing many of the parameters that define our comfort zones makes far more things possible.
