Good afternoon, fellow Rotarians!
Tomorrow is a very special meeting. It is our annual Veterans lunch where we will recognize those who have served our country. We will honor our fellow Rotary club members who are Veterans. We also hope that you will invite a Veteran friend, family member or co-worker to share a meal with us so that we can honor them, too.
Join us in welcoming Earl Willis and our own Ariel Lara from The Warrior's Refuge as they give us information that can help us support our local Veterans. You can get a preview of Mr. Willis' powerful story by CLICKING THIS LINK.
OPERATION TURKEY: As mentioned last week, we have secured the commercial kitchen of The Warrior's Refuge to package meals for our local community members in need to ensure that everybody has a hot, nutritious, delicious traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Many thanks to those who have already done so much to help us serve our community this way. Heather Rimato has spearheaded this effort. Jason Hayes has volunteered to smoke and de-bone the turkeys and Ariel Lara has helped us secure The Warrior's Refuge's kitchen to pack and distribute the meals. YOU can sign up to help, too! On Tuesday, we will need someone with a trailer or high-capacity hauling capabilities to bring the turkeys to West Columbia. If possible, we would like to, then, deliver the turkeys to the smokers. We are hoping both those tasks can happen on November 23. However, it may require we split those tasks up over two days. Then, on the morning of November 25, our club will meet up in West Columbia to pack and deliver the meals to both distribution sites and, if possible, individual families. Details are still being worked out, but if you would like to sign up to help, please click on the Operation Turkey link under Upcoming Events and then click the button to sign up for a task/shift.
QUICK REMINDER: The meeting scheduled for Tuesday, November 16 will take place in The Center for the Arts & Sciences' art gallery at noon. Please mark your calendars so that you remember where to go on that day. (We will NOT have a meeting on Tuesday, November 23, 2021.)
Don't forget to register for Rotary International Convention in Houston. The link to do so is Houston | Rotary Convention. We will also have volunteer opportunities for you to sign up for soon.
