Rotarians,
 
I hope you're all having a good week. We have some important service opportunities coming up. 
 
  • (This) Saturday, Nov. 10: We have our street cleanup this Saturday during the citywide Green & Clean. Meet at 8 a.m. at the Pine Tree High School parking lot off Fairmont. The more Rotarians who show up, the faster it goes!
  • Saturday, Dec. 8: We’ll be ringing the bell for Salvation Army at the Wal-Mart on Gilmer Road. We have fewer spots to fill. Check with Colt Edwards for open spaces.
and not service, but mark you calendars:
 
  • Friday, Dec. 14: Club Christmas party at Michael and Julia Tubb’s home. Check out the flier here. No meeting at the church on this day.
If you've been thinking about making a donation to the Rotary Foundation, this is a good time to do it. November is Rotary Foundation Month. The Rotary Foundation recently received for the 11th consecutive year the highest rating — four stars — from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S.
 
It is Judge Charles’ week to lead us in the song, Pledge, prayer, and 4-Way Test, and it is Mike Lewis’ week to provide the prize for Rusty’s Raffle.
 
The menu this week is beef tips with rice and mixed vegetables.
 
At the meeting this week, we’ll hear from Dr. Ben Mack about his medical mission trip. We’ll also induct a couple of new members.
 
Veterans Day is Sunday. Take some time this weekend to thank those who serve to protect and preserve our freedom. Veterans Day stems from the end of the of World War I, which was formally ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in 2018. That’s 100 years ago this year.
 
See you Friday,
Scott
