**ROTARY CLUB MINUTES OF MEETING**
**SPECIAL CASUAL MEETING AT NEW GARDEN RESTAURANT**
Tuesday:  September 12, 2017
 
This was a ‘special social’ meeting, one which centered on food and fellowship. We had some 25 members and guests, including Kathy Lindemann, Susana Brown, Emily and Allison Winig (Andy’s children), and Ed Mulhall and Irene Tsardinalis, both guests of Deb Kazarian’s from Family Federal Bank, and about to be Corporate members! So, we will see more of them going forward!!!.
 
The New Garden put out a buffet of some 6 different Chinese dishes, and they were all excellent! New Garden has not been open quite a year yet, and it was a very nice restaurant and event.
 
Announcements:
 
Marty welcomed everyone, and it was a fun festive time. The big news is that:
