Good morning!
I hope everyone had an enjoyable Labor Day Holiday weekend.  For those who were unable to attend last week’s meeting, you missed two great vocational talks given by Bob Sessions and Dave Schaeffer.  This week’s speaker is this year’s Club Exchange Student, Monica Fujiwara from Japan.  Please plan to attend and give her a warm Rotarian welcome.
I received the following message over the weekend from Mark Bacon, Co-President of the Noon Club.
“It is with great sadness that I advise our membership of the passing of Suzanne Weber wife of fellow club Rotarian Bob.  Those that knew Suzanne will remember her perpetual smile and cheerful disposition.  Memorial Services will be held at Rocky River United Methodist Church at 1pm this coming Friday 9/9/16.  I am sure Bob will appreciate any support his club can provide at this difficult time.  Should you wish to send a note to Bob, his address is as follows:
4 Chippenham Court, RR, 44116.”
Don’t forget about the upcoming Annual Clambake on Wednesday, September 14th to be held at the Clifton Beach Pavilion.  Registration and payment deadline is September 9th.  Contact Bill Gaydos if you have any questions.

Lastly, don’t forget to purchase a copy of the “100 Year Anniversary of Rotary International Foundation” book at this week’s meeting.  The cost is $30.00 (Cash only please).
