Paola and I have now moved into our new house (condo) and feel like real Floridians now that we have the plates on the cars to prove it. :-)
It seems strange to be walking around in 80 degree weather today with all the stores primed for black Friday and all the Christmas decorations are fully in place at the stores.
I will be officially be joining the Rotary club that the Barnharts and Dan Weiss are a part of this coming week. 
All the best,
Club member Chrissy Scott is the new Director of Development of the Worthington Resource Pantry.  Chrissy received a bachelor's degree in social work in 1990 and has worked with families and children for over 25 years. Most of that time was spent as a social worker and later as a development officer at Huckleberry House, a runaway and homeless youth shelter in Columbus.

Chrissy grew up in Worthington and is thrilled to be working in her own community and supporting her neighbors. She and her husband Chris and their two kids, Sam and Clara, live with a gaggle of dogs and a cat.

The Rotary Foundation will be celebrating it's 100th Anniversary coinciding with the Rotary International Convention June 10th to June 14th 2017 in Atlanta next year. The Rotary Foundation was started in Atlanta in 1917 by Rotarian Arch Klump from Cleveland, Ohio with a donation of $26.50. To celebrate The Rotary Foundations Centennial, Atlanta was selected to host the 2017 Rotary International Convention.
Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...

Arch Klumph’s hometown raises over $2 million through centennial celebration
Rotary members in Cleveland, Ohio, USA, celebrated 100 years of The Rotary Foundation on 23 October with a banquet and a concert by The Cleveland Orchestra that have so far raised more than $2.1 million for the Foundation's next century of good work. Arch Klumph, a Cleveland Rotarian, planted the seed for The Rotary Foundation in 1917, with his idea of having an endowment fund dedicated to "doing good in the world." Today's District 6630 leaders thought that a concert was a fitting way to honor Klumph and mark the centennial because of Klumph's love of music. Klumph performed in several...
