Dear Rotarians & Friends,
I'm confident everyone has been enjoying Labor Day in spite of the not so perfect weather.
How can it be September already.  School is in session, football on TV and our Indians in the hunt
for post season play.  Time does just fly by.  I recall my parents uttering that lament and now I'm
living it.
Speaking of time flying, the Noon Club is hosting their Annual Clam Bake at Clifton Beach, September 
13th.  This is a great event for Rotarians and families from both Clubs. Vicky Foster, President of
the Noon Club, is the contact for your RSVP. Flyers about the event will be available at our meeting
Wednesday's meeting will be a Club Assembly and the focus will be on our Auction Fund Raiser which
is scheduled for February 9, 2018.  Marty Harris is the Chair of this event and she needs the full support
from every Club Member. 
On a somber note, Anne Giffels, Tom's wife, passed away this past week after a courageous battle
with cancer.  Anne attended many of our Club's events over the years and she was always a happy
and supportive person of everything we did as a Club. Tom is a Charter Member of our Club and has served
in many roles and Club Officer positions.  We extend our deepest sympathy to Tom and his family. 
Calling hours are Wednesday, September 6, 3-7 at McGorray-Hanna Funeral Home, 14133 Detroit Avenue in
Lakewood and a memorial celebration will be held at the Nicholson House on Saturday, September 9, beginning at 6.
All the best in "Making A Difference".
