Many Thanks to Mark Patzke and Beth Heidorn for their great work
putting together this years "Steak Fry". The venue, food and company

  Please note that the club duty roster through January 5th, 2018 is now posted on the clubs website. Take a look and make sure you are prepared for your duty! The next 7 weeks of this schedule are always at the end of this newsletter (RYFNL).




Rotarians, please post things to these sites, and when doing so to "hash tag" #RACINEROTARY.  This will connect all of our posts to each other.





 If you have speaker duty please let me know two weeks in advance who your speaker is or what your program is so I can get the info to the newsletter. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please attempt to reach out to other club members for assistance and let Patrick Booth or Tom Leuenberger know what the program will be.

On Friday morning, August 11th, the Founders Rotary

new band shell in Paul P. Harris Rotary Park on the
grounds of the Festival Hall.
