Last Week's Meeting
Last week our speakers were two community grant recipients.  Linda Hall and Barb Tobias told us about Connect to Community that is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to finding and facilitating purposeful employment and enjoyment for adults with developmental disabilities.   Emily Petway told us about GiveNKind that is an organization that makes giving more personal and purposeful by providing a searchable, online database that creates opportunities for individuals with items to donate to find, and directly connect with registered nonprofits that can repurpose those items for good within their community.
Also, two club members became Paul Harris Fellows at our last meeting.  Congratulations to Greg and Brett!  We exchanged banners with our visitor Col/Dr. Satya N Ray from India.

Order Club Apparel Now!
The online store has been set up for our club to order apparel that will be personalized for our club.  Here is the link:
They will take your order (that you pay for on the site) until midnight October 6th.  The cost shown for the item includes the personalization and taxes.  I will pick up the items and give them out at our meeting, so no shipping cost.
If you want something that is not listed, please contact the vendor, Melon Ink, because they have been very helpful in setting this up and will accommodate us.  Also, they have said that if you own an item of clothing that you want our logo on, they will personalize it.
Thank you for getting your orders in promptly.  - Martha
