Greetings Rotarians,
This past week as I was visiting my Sister in Law at the hospital I had the opportunity to speak with a family that was dealing with the loss of their loved one. In our conversation of offering condolences they told me how their father's Rotary club has been so supportive and helpful through the illness and now with the loss. They told me how club members had come to visit their club member and spend time with him.
I thought what a wonderful thing. Then I thought about our club and just how many quiet hours of service for each other goes on from week to week with never very little fan fair. I thank each of you for all that you do for each other. That is what Rotary is all about. Thank you for all of your comments last week and for the input that each of you shared concerning our fundraiser in August. Please mark your calendars for a meeting at 6pm on Tuesday, October 27th, at Starbucks in Rocky River. The purpose of the meeting is to discuss ideas for fundraisers and propose some recommendations to the board to consider at our next board meeting. If you can attend that would be great.
This week our Club Member Steve Cornelius will be sharing his story with us. Plan to attend this Wednesday to learn more about Steve and all that he does outside of Rotary. Also mark your calendars for Saturday, October 31, for our fall service project at the Beck Center. Plan to arrive at 8 am and we should be finished by 11 am.
