Roto-Rooter Bob Kreisberg
Kreisberg invited Red-Badge members JoAnn Ross and Ray Green to tell a little about themselves. Ross is very familiar with Rotary because her late husband, Gene, was a Rotarian for 50 years, including CHNR. She says she was from the south, but lived in a number of states before ending up in Carlsbad. She grew up in Memphis, and said, “Yes, I got to meet Elvis, he signed my hand, but my mother made me wash it.” She taught school in Texas, and other states included New Jersey, Michigan, Virginia, central California and Washington.

Green said he was born in Maryland and came to California for college—and stayed. He and his family have been in Carlsbad for the last 20 years, and he says he’s “really happy to be part of this great organization.

June birthdays and anniversaries were recognized, including birthdays for Zoom attendees Rachel Ivanovich, Mary Fritz-Wilson and Richard Weston, and anniversaries for Mike Metts (#30), Kreisberg (#47) and Bud Carroll (#76). It was noted that while Carroll hasn't been with us via Zoom, he can be contacted via email. He and his wife will celebrate their anniversary on June 6, and cards or emails are suggested.
