At the encouragement of Peter Blando member and Past President, we had the first of many Beer Socials one Tuesday evening instead of a morning meeting and had a very positive turnout with the most attending club members we have had at any event so far. Good job Peter and those that showed. After the first of the year, we are looking to schedule more of these, probably around the last Tuesday of the month. Stay tune and we will let you know. Happy Suds to all!

Well we are off again to another year of the speech contest. Two students competed in the Rotary speech contest on Tuesday. Two other contestants backed out at the last minute. The winner is Rufina Tolstova (who competed last year), and the runner up was Anh Hoang. Both students wrote and delivered outstanding speeches. Thanks to the Rotarians who attended and to our volunteer judges. Thanks especially to our Dawn Farrell who orchestrated the contest.
