I hope everyone had as good of a business networking session as our group did at Dundee Bank. Rotarian, Tim Schmad, who is now working there in a business development role, introduced us to Adrian Hernandez, Sr Vice President and one of the owners, who gave us a great presentation on the history, status and plans for the bank. We met in their Blackstone branch which is at 38th and Farnam in the former vegetarian restaurant, and before that a former gas station. They have done a terrific job restoring the building and I hope all of you get an opportunity to visit there.
Thanks again to all of our business networking hosts and to Rose Opbroek and her committee for putting together a great business networking day.
Last Friday we had several Rotarians attend the bags tournament, Cornhole for a Cause, at Big Red Restaurant & Sports Bar, 81st and Cass. The event was a tremendous success, and our MACS committee raised a tidy sum for Girls Inc. I will let Suzie Heffernan give you the specifics at our club meeting on October 25, but I am very proud of the job our MACS committee did on this project.
On Tuesday, October 24, we have our World Polio Day viewing party at DJ’s Dugout. See below for all the details. Please stop by and join us for this fun event to raise awareness about Rotary fight to end Polio.
