Last week we welcomed the Rotary Scholarship students and their parents to our meeting where they were presented with their awards. Congratulations to Kathryn Connolly, Kaitlin and Kelly Hurley, and Fabian Bock. We wish them all the best as they continue onto College. Thank you to our Scholarship Committee - Dagmar Coulter and Georgine Meyer - for a great job.

This Saturday, June 26th is Rotary Night at the Newark Bears. This Night is for our is a fundraiser for "Our Foundation". Gov. Karen reminds us that to make this night a success we need each club to purchase a minimum of 10 Tickets.  If you don't want to go to the Game you can donate them back and we will find homes for the Tickets for Children who love to attend.

President Jim would like to remind everyone that wishes to donate tickets to bring a check (payable to Mendham Rotary) to Wednesday's meeting. The tickets are $10 each. As of last week, no one from our club is going to the game.

As we heard last week from President Jim: West Morris Mendham High School has agreed to allow our Mendham Rotary Club to use their facilities for our 2011 Antique Show & Sale. Dates are to be determined --- but it probably will be mid to late March 2011.

Our new menu continues to be excellent. Come to a meeting and see what culinary delights are being served.

The new Rotary year is almost here and it's time to seriously think about what we are going to do, what direction we want to take in the new year.

I have created a new photo album (accessible from the club website home page) called "Misc Bulletin Pix" containing the pictures that are in the recent bulletins. I will continue to add pictures to that album as I receive them for the bulletin.
