Announcements and happy fines-

The record breaking cold weather did not stand in the way of a great turnout for our first meeting of 2018-   midwestern hardiness, cabin fever, or just the chance to meet in fellowship….or maybe all of the above.   In any case it was good to see so many people. 
 
President Jim opened the meeting with announcements:
  • The District Conference will be in Sheboygan this year, and should be a great time.  To encourage attendance, the Club will pay $ 100 toward the cost for up to a limited number of attendees.  If you are interested, see Jim for more information.
  • The Rotary International Convention will be held in Toronto from June 24- June 28.  Registration is open, and the District has reserved a block of rooms.  For more information check the district website:  www.rotary6440.org.
 
Several Rotarians are starting the New Year with happiness:  Mike Clements celebrating his new home inspection business, and soliciting sponsors for the Lions Club’s Chili Cook-off, Dave Weiner, who made it to the meeting after arthroscopic knee surgery yesterday, and Kris Neimann, who is on the road to recovery after spending Christmas in the emergency room with the flu.   Bob Paddock and Bill Kmiecik- happy to see each other, and Wendy Davis who talked Dave into going on the District service trip to Guatemala.
