Greeting Rotarians,
I am so saddened by the news that has come out of Paris France. My nephew was in the city and thank God he and his girlfriend are safe. It sure helps me to put things in perspective and to look at all of the relationships I have in my life and to say thank you. How senseless and how sad that a group of people can be so brainwashed as to believe that it is ok to take innocent lives. 
On a much happier note, Congratulations to Gordon Geiger for a successful Grand Opening of his new store in Downtown Cleveland. We are all happy for you in this new accomplishment. May you have great success.
Please mark your calendars for Saturday November 21 for helping with the Lakewood Charitable Assistance Corporation's food packing. This is always a fun and rewarding activity. More information will be available at our meeting this week. Dave Schiska will be our Vocational Speaker this Wednesday. I invite all of you to come out and support him. Dave has always been a strong supporter of our club and it is good to have him back with us and in a healthier state.
Save December 2nd for our Club Holiday party which will be held starting at 5pm at Bill Minnich’s home. In lieu of our morning meeting that day, we will be gathering that evening at Bill’s home. If you are looking for a new and exciting opportunity with our club please consider throwing your name into the mix for our new board members. This year we have three people rolling off of our board. We are looking for at least three club members who would like to run for the board.
Dave Clements
