Classic Speaker

Greg Fishel - WRAL Cheif Meteorologist

Back in July of 2016, Greg Fishel spoke to the club about climate change and making data-driven policy decisions.

Fishel is now a senior atmospheric scientist at Priogen Energy, an international company that provides expertise on complex energy markets with an emphasis on short-term and medium-term power trading.

The Way Back Machine
To develop acquaintance and fellowship, the original Club had a rule that a member
be fined a dime should he address or refer to another member as “Mister”
during the meeting. These small fines went into a charity fund.

The Club sold $18,633.83 worth of Liberty Bonds. It furnished a dozen cars and,
through Associated Charities, distributed baskets of provisions and clothing to
the needy families of the city. The Club also furnished seeds for backyard gardens to
100 families of the community and provided the Boy Scouts a ten-day
vacation at Lakeview.
