Meeting notes - October 1

Announcements

Service Project - Saturday at Ron Griffith's home (1316 Kittitas - off Crawford).  Meet at 7:00 at Smitty's if you want breakfast fellowship, or 8:00 at Ron's house.  Bring family and friends, and a few garden tools.

Thursday, Oct. 3, "Chamber After Hours" at Volunteer Attorney Service across from the Liberty Theater. Since we are members of the Chamber, all are welcome.  This is a great time to network, and find potential Rotarians. 4-6:00, drinks and appetizers served.

Thursday, Oct. 24, is World Polio Awareness Day.  We are having an area wide potluck at the Senior Activity Center on Maple St.  $5/person, or $15/family.  This is a good time to socialize with fellow Rotarians from our club, and the other clubs in town.  A member of a local Rotary club will match up to $26,000 raised in our district.  The Gates Foundation will match that total 2 to 1, giving a potential gift of $156,000 to The Rotary Foundation's polio eradication program. That will translate to thousands of kids who can be immunized around the world.  Let's see if we can get at least 20 member plus family to this event.

Jim A reported that the 2nd Harvest Food distribution provided 336 families (over 1100 individuals) with fresh food.  Nearly 10,000 pounds of food were given away.  Thanks to Jim & Carol Adamson, John McDarment, Lynn Love, and PJ Jones for helping out with this project.  Our club gave $1500 for this delivery.
