Meeting Notes from October 6, 2020
The Light for October 6, 2020
By Myra Janus
President Chris Joyce presided at this virtual club meeting. The Thought for the Day was presented by Linda Gelber and featured a selection from Walking with the Wind: A Memoir of the Movement by the late congressman John Lewis.
President Chris announced that the Noon Club is looking for help planting bulbs in the Rotary International Friendship Garden today. 
The Golf Road Clean-up is at 8:30 a.m. this Saturday, October 10. Meet in the TJMaxx parking lot.
Chris presented this information about the Fall Training Seminar:
SURVIVING/THRIVING IN OUR NEW VIRTUAL/HYBRID WORLD. That's the theme for the seminar,as designed by  District Trainer Linda Borton and Chris, to focus on the issues all clubs are facing. Because we can’t gather in person, the seminar will be held in parts, with two-hour sessions planned for both October 22 and 29. For further information, contact Chris. Registration is required. Frankly, the seminar is not for everyone. Club Presidents, Officers, and Chairs, however, are ​strongly encouraged​ to attend. 
Steve Steiber reported that there will be a new holiday sale order sheet, including items from the Spice House. There will be touchless on-line ordering and payment. The message will be “We are doing your holiday shopping for you!”
Katherine Peterson reported that the Tuesday fellowship walks continue. Meet at the Greenwood Beach at 5:30 p.m.  Plenty of parking is available. She also mentioned the club runner announcement about the panel discussion with Jane Elliot, which occurred this week.
Bill Glader reported that Commonwealth Edison has contributed $1,000 to the Virtual Taste of Evanston, for total revenue for this year's virtual event of $27,400.
Patrick Mbullo announced that grant applications are coming into the International Service Committee and encourages members with ideas for grants to share them with the committee.
It was announced that Ira Graham is very appreciative of the calls he has received. He is finding it difficult to get himself together for the early morning meeting, but does try to watch the recording.
Roasts & Boasts
Marisa Naujokas boasted the IT team for the Holiday Sale, especially Kristen as well as the testing team.
Marv Edelstein boasted Chris and Joy Joyce for the gift of a National Parks Passport as he and Carol prepare for their trip to Shenandoah National Park .
Speaker: Ken Krimstein 
Topic: Writing with Pictures
Ken Krimstein’s talk was a very enjoyable break in our pandemic existence. If you missed it, be sure to take time to watch the recording.  His cartoons have been published in the New Yorker, Barron's, The Harvard Business Review, Prospect Magazine, Punch, The National Lampoon, the Wall Street Journal, Narrative Magazine, and three of S. Gross’s cartoon anthologies.
Ken reminded us that many writers have been artists or illustrators as well. Examples are Edgar Alan Poe, e.e. cummings, William Blake, William Saroyan, James Joyce, Aldous Huxley, James Thurber, Edward Lear, Maurice Sendak. He views his work as “Writing with Pictures” as a way of commenting about what is going on.
He is not a political cartoonist. He said he would find that “far too scary.”  He tends to follow certain themes such as “Husband vs. Wife,” “Man vs. Dog,” “Man vs. Cat,” or “Man vs. Bagpipes”.  He writes graphic novels, including The Three Escapes of Hannah Arendt: Tyranny and Truth, a graphic biography of philosopher Hannah Arendt.
His drawings in the book are in black and white with an accent of green for Hannah. He is currently working on The Lost Biographies of Six Yiddish Teens on the Brink of WWII. Ken gains inspiration from many sources, including old children’s or Webster’s dictionaries. He was an avid comic book collector as a child. He attended Deerfield High School.
Someone asked about the process by which cartoons are submitted to the New Yorker and how the Cartoon Contest Works. To find out the answer, visit or watch the recording of Ken Krimstein’s speech. It will be well worth your time.
