Vice President Steve Morris opened our virtual luncheon in our President's absence and welcomed 13 members, 3 guests, and 6 members from the Escondido Kiwanis Club.
Immediate Past President Mike Boland introduced our speaker Dr. Federico Rossano, who spoke about the research he is doing at UCSD on dog cognition. He shared his research findings and played several videos showing dogs communicating to their owners using buttons that play words. The virtual audience was fascinated and amused by the topic and the videos.
The Club had celebrated most of the October birthdays at our in-person meeting earlier in the month, so we went on to Bill's Bucks.
Thank you to:
Karina Sousa - pledged money in honor of the great program and because she enjoyed seeing guest Heidi Callan (Ryan Callan's wife) and long-time member Eldon Thompson in the Zoom room.
Doug Frost - pledged money in honor of Stanford's recent win over Notre Dame. When asked, Doug claimed he didn't know about the Padres recent success.
After reviewing the last few weeks' successful events and looking forward to events to come, the meeting ended on time.
