Dear Rotarians and Friends,
Our meeting this past Wednesday was a Club Assembly.  We had a good conversation regarding the Club's Community activities as well as our involvement with students.  I think it's fair to say we are always mentally reviewing our various activities and whether they are "Making A Difference".  We can always add, delete or fix our efforts to make them serve our communities better.
The Club has unanimously supported bringing back our annual fund raiser to the Don Umerley Civic Center and we have all of the space reserved for Friday, February 9, 2018.  Marty Harris has graciously offered to Chair the event and we all owe her our "Thanks" and full support to make this a success.  The support needs to come in the form of co-chairs and a 100% participation by every member.  So mark it on your calendar now.
We also discussed having every member solicit at least one weekly program speaker this year to address our Club.  At the moment, Jim Rowe has championed this effort and he's done a great job.  Bring those contacts to Jim and we can get these presenters into our schedule.  The notion is that we all have different people or organizations we know of that do things that will be informative and interesting to our members.
The month of August is just around the corner and it is a busy month for the Club.  We have "Shoe Box" assembly at St. Luke's Church and the Annual Golf Outing at Avon Oaks Country Club.
I hope to see you this coming Wednesday so we can all continue working at "Making A Difference".
