Hi Everyone!
    Thanks to Rotarians and guests who attended our club social/fundraiser at Rubio's on September 25th:  Judy & Ron, Chuck & Susan, Sherylea, Nadina, Eric, Glenn, Dawn and her son, Allen & Teresa, Dave E., and Assistant Governor Brendan Kennedy's family attended as well!  Rubio's will donate a portion of the proceeds we spent that evening so we are raising funds, but most importantly, enjoying each other's company. Our next social to be determined.
    Cutest Pet Contest- remember to enter your pet's picture in our contest by visiting Post it on Facebook, text to friends, or email etc. to your friends and family.  Anyone is welcome to attend.  Entries due on Oct. 15.  My pug placed fourth last year and we're shooting for first place this year.  His picture is adorable....just sayin!!
    Myself, Chuck, Susan, Judy, Nadina, and Dave E. attended the joint meeting with Glendale Rotary Club on Oct. 5 to support and listen to our District Governor Nancy Van Pelt.  We also took some time after the meeting to interview a potential Rotary Scholarship Recipient.  To receive a scholarship from Rotary, clubs are asked to interview the candidate and provide recommendations on whether the candidate meets the requirements. We interviewed a lovely candidate named Mamaleh (formerly from Liberia) who is pursuing a nursing degree and everyone agreed she should receive the entire requested amount. Good luck with your career Mamaleh!
    If you missed the assembling of dictionaries project at Susan and Chuck's house then you missed a good dinner by Susan.  Several people showed up and hundreds of dictionaries were stamped, boxed and loaded in people's cars. Now it's time to distribute the dictionaries to the school(s) you selected.  If you don't recall your school, email Susan for details.  Let's get those dictionaries out as soon as we can, especially before the holiday season. As we have heard in the past, young high school students who make our 'Student of the Month' recall receiving their dictionaries in 3rd grade. How great it is to hear we made an impression and a difference in their education.
   Don't forget to sign up for the "Service Above Self" Project of Toy Sanitizing at the Department of Child Safety on October 14th from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Thanks to Allen for scheduling this event and contacting Kohl's for a possible grant and volunteers to help us!  This is probably our 4th year in a row helping clean toys and their carpets/office and Allen says they appreciate Peoria Rotary so very much!
-With Much Gratitude,
