Greetings Everyone,       
 
It was a festive and fun Holiday luncheon this week with some great guests.  It was great to see our friends from JP Lord  that came out to greet us and give away Christmas cards which is always a blessing.  The Big guy (Santa) also showed up and gave out some winks and treats, but it did seem like several members must have been on the naughty list as there was some coal being given out as well.  Thanks Santa for making time for us.  Thanks to Camille for lining up the chorus from South High School to come and share some holiday singing with us.  They are very talented and gave us a great show.
 
I got called out today and rightfully so for forgetting to publicly thank Dino's storage for hosting our ride on Ollie the Trolley during our lights tour at the social last week.  Thank you Jena and Dino's very much for your sponsorship it was a great time.  I am not sure what I will do with the snowman poop I received as the penalty for my forgetfulness.  Lol
 
Thanks also to Heather in her ongoing efforts to help us reach our challenge of 100% of our membership donating to Rotary International this year.  Please consider a gift in any amount to help Rotary in doing more good in the world and growing closer to earning your next Paul Harris designation.
 
Don't forget we are not meeting the next 2 weeks.  Be sure to sign up now on the website for the Outland Trophy luncheon and the Outland Trophy dinner it promises to be a great time.
Thanks for all your support this year and helping us to make difference in the world!
 
Have a great Holiday!
Brad
As I am writing this I am sad to announce that I just heard that long time member Roger Holthouse passed away Tuesday.  Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.
