Luau News!
Those who attended had a wild and crazy time at Jack and Doris Donley's home on Sunday. Great food, music, libations, and conversations were enjoyed by all. Please send pictures of the event to Fabrizio so he can post some on our Rotary page. The weather finally cooperated, having been very questionable earlier in the day. A Big Thank You to those who planned and executed all the details: Jack and Doris Donley, Sheri and Kevin Stevenson (unfortunately, Sheri couldn't attend after all her hard work), Karen Rubin, Kay Rendleman, and Biff Morehead for the superb tasting beer that he generously donated. A beautiful cake with mousse filling ended the evening, tailor made for the Colorado Springs Rotary Club.
A REMINDER: THE PRICE GOES UP TO $150 ON SEPTEMBER 23RD FROM $125 FOR TICKETS TO THE GALA. Buy your tickets now on-line or at our Rotary meeting this Friday to save $50 a couple!
Alan Gregory will be leading the meeting on Friday with grace and aplomb. Thanks, Alan, for filling in for me!
Next fun events for us to attend:
Flight Preview Party (Migration Celebration) - October 6 at the Pioneers' Museum: 4:00 to 7:00 pm.
Cowboy Star at University Village - September 21: 5:30 to 8:30, benefiting the Flight Gala with drink specials. The drink specials will continue until the end of October with a portion of the proceeds benefiting Rotary. Thanks, Cowboy Star, for your support.
