Hello Everyone,
 

I hope you all enjoyed a relaxing Labor Day weekend. It has been a busy couple of months for everyone in our club and we all need a little down time once in awhile.

 

Last Week: Executive Director of the Madden Open Heart Camp, David Zaleon spoke about the camp and the difference they are making in the lives of children with heart conditions. Maureen Atwood, a board member of the camp, discussed her thoughts of how to use the open land that the camp owns.

 

This Week’s Program: Our Rotary district governor Frank Wargo will be here. Frank is a great speaker and a motivator. He has traveled the world as a Rotarian and has lots of stories to share. Linda Day (Happy Birthday) will also be giving Paul Harris awards. This is a meeting we should all try to attend.

Book drive:  Please remember to bring children's books for the book house.  

 

Board Meeting: Monday September 12th
