Rotary Last Week, July 28

Farrell Patrick did a monumental job subbing as guest speaker by taking us on a Volksmarch (video) to the Black Hills, S.D. and viewing the face of Indian Chief Crazy Horse

carved into the Cliffside. It was a very moving program and a tribute to the Plains Indian nations! Thanks, Farrell.

We will be updating information for our membership roster, so please make any inclusions, exclusions etc. on the handout.  (E-Mail address is welcome!)

A familiar Face appeared at the meeting. Vince Lindemeyer has returned to the club after his overseas duties and was warmly welcomed.

Phil Brillante - It’s the bugs this week! Those pesky mosquitos with their West Nile virus!

Phil alerted all to this menace and described the ways to combat them. Most important is to get rid of standing water where they breed. Objects such as old tires standing in the open

collect rainwater and are prime breeding grounds for the little buggers! Thanks, Phil.
