Norfolk Rotary Club                     July 23, 2013

At today’s meeting, Josh Moening, assistant to Congressman Jeff Fortenberry, was the guest of Stan Christensen.  Josh has tentatively set up for State Auditor Mike Foley to be our special guest at the evening meeting on August 6.  All Rotary members are encouraged to invite spouses and other guests to this meeting.  It will begin with a 5:30pm social time and dinner at 6:00pm.

Kris Winter reported that the Nigeria project will send Braille books to a school in the capital city of Abuja.  Our club is partnering with the Jabi Lakeside Rotary Club.  John Schmitt is collecting the books and will package and send them with free shipping.

Connie Kube introduced her guests including today’s presenter, Alex Armand, a 2009-2010 foreign exchange student from France who was sponsored by the Norfolk Rotary Club.  She is visiting the Norfolk area this summer.  As a present college student, Alex shared insights that she gained as an exchange student while in high school. 

Stan asked the membership to sign up to help with the August 2 Chamber of Commerce golf tournament at El Dorado Hills for an hour or two.  We can use this as an opportunity to encourage memberships and sponsorships.  Our club is sponsoring a hole.   

 Respectfully submitted by                                                                                             John Schmitt
