Last week's meeting

We welcomed and enjoyed a presentation by our District Governor Lyle Staab.  Lyle complimented our club for its vibrancy and challenged our club to consider new ideas especially as we recruit new members.
This week's meeting
Join us Wednesday morning for a presentation by Deb Kobak titled Providing Peace of Mind, Celebrating Life.  The presentation covers the process of what happens when a death occurs and the benefit of pre-planning.  Deb is a former colleague of Beth DeWall and has spoken on this topic to various groups including Chicago area Rotary Clubs.   
Thought and Prayer:  John Glasgow
