Over the last 4 years this event has raise == $66,650 for the Foundation to hand out to students.  That is quite an accomplishment.
Thanks to the entire team as all your contributions were key in making this year another big success.

This week, Friday September 30th, our meeting will be at Racine Country Club at 7:00 AM. Our speaker will be State Senator Van Wanggaard, a guest of Lyndsay Knoell.


In history...........On September 30th 1955 the improbably named college student Donald Turnupseed makes the fateful left turn onto California State Route 41 that kills actor James Dean.







 When you have speaker duty please let me know two weeks in advance who your speaker is or what your program is so I can get the info to the newspaper. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please let Patrick Booth or Ashley Staeck know and they will assist you.

  Under what condition does a metal like tin or aluminum become superconductive?


The Finance Committee will meet on Monday September 26 at 5:00 in room 307.  That is the meeting for Rotarians to attend.  The alderman will have read the letter and attachment.  Staff recommendation will be to accept the donation and proceed with planning the construction of the stage.


At that meeting they may have some discussion about renaming the park.  They may want to include that language in their recommendation to the Council.  They may want more explanation about Rotary’s expectations, but I think they are pretty clear.


If they make a recommendation, it will move to the Council meeting on October 4th.  We should be at that meeting also.  You may want to speak during the Public Comment segment at the beginning of the meeting.  Each speaker is allowed 3 minutes.   When the item comes up for discussion, they normally do not allow any more public comment.


If this get approved, we will move forward with planning.   At some point we will go before the Public Works committee for approval of plans, awarding of a contract for construction and anything else that may need Council approval.
