Hello Everyone!
    Hope you all are having a fabulous week!  This is a short note from me this week but I do want to give a shout out to Allen for coordinating the cleaning project at the Department of Child Services office in Peoria last Saturday.  Thanks to Rotarians who pitched in to clean: Susan, Judy, Teresa, Sherylea, and Tim. Hopefully, we will receive a nice grant from Kohl’s for this project.  DCS has never looked cleaner and the kids have clean toys to play with during visits.
    Mark your calendars as The Cutest Pet Contest winners will be announced on Oct. 23 at Lucidi’s Distillery, downtown old Peoria at 6:30 p.m.  Join us for fun and drinks and we’ll see who will take home bragging rights of the cutest pet!
    Don’t forget to distribute your dictionaries, preferable before the holiday season.  Don’t miss our next club meeting as guest speaker, Kevin Lowbrera from Research for Life, will be speaking on body donation- should be very interesting!
    See you soon!
-Sherylea, President
