Last Week’s Program

Bill Stone discussed the Rotary Foundation. He included: Matching grants; Paul Harris fellowships; the Polio Plus drive, and a background on the club after founder Paul Harris’ death in 1917. An International endeavor occurred in Kansas City, Mo, and an enormous amount was donated to the fund. Bill rounded his presentation with a short film, “Every Rotarian, Every Year”. Great job, Bill!


Josh Brewer – Announced that the tail gate For VMI – West Point, will be on Oct. 7th.


Boat Trip – With the exception of the heavy weather and each of us ‘crew members’ taking turns bailing the boat, a great time was had by all! Lots of comradery, good  food and drink and a shrug at the weather sustained all! Kudos to Cap’n Gus for a job well done!


Phil Brillante’s weekly safety tip!’ – Keep a watchful eye on those big, yellow buses! School’s opening and those sleepy eyed kids will be riding them heading to and from their places of learning. (Help them have a safe trip)
