Last week Christopher Pfanenstiel and C.L. Landen served as greeters.  We had several presentations and announcements. Hanging Judge Kevin Welsh handed out some fines.   Nick Jasa filled in as Secretary and recognized December birthdays.  Bob Mundy introduced John Dechant who talked about his book "Scoreless" and the process of writing it.   The RISK bag was at $558 and Dan Lupardus won a free lunch.










Last week Herb Hartman made a special presentation to Rich and Tracy Rowland of recognition from the Rotary Foundation. Rich and Tracy were recognized as Major Donors which means their cumulative giving has reached 10,000 to the Rotary Foundation. Thank you for your incredible generosity over the years!
When : Thursday, December 22nd
Where: Anthony's
What: Delicious lunch, dessert, and "magical"entertainment
Cost: 20 per person.  No pre-registration required.
Please bring a guest to this fun event!
Thank you to Marlene Sullivan and Lindley Clothing for hosting a fabulous After Hours last week.  Many coats were collected and over $1700 was raised to take Crestridge students shopping for clothes.  Thank you to all who attended and donated!  You can see more of the photos on Facebook by clicking here
Record numbers of Rotarians are registering for the Rotary Convention in Atlanta this summer including a large contingent from our club.  Many of you have already reserved your hotel rooms (if you haven't- do so asap-they go fast!).  The next deadline is convention registration.   If you register by December 15th, the cost is $340.  On December 16th, this goes to $415.  Register soon to save $75!  Go to for more information.
In this 100th Anniversary year of the Rotary Foundation, the committee will also be recognizing all Paul Harris Sustaining Members (donations of $100 or more this Rotary year) with a special 100th Anniversary pin.  
 The Rotary Foundation is the charity of Rotary.   Through Rotary grants, people around the world are served with educational opportunities, health services, clean water, vaccinations, and nutrition.    We ask every Rotarian to consider a gift of $100 each year (Every Rotarian Every Year) toward these programs.  Thank you to those who have donated this year already!   The fastest way to donate is by going to or you can give a check to a committee member at Rotary.
