Notable December 9th In History

1854 – Alfred Lord Tennyson’s poem “The Charge of the Light Brigade” was published in “The Examiner.” His classic poem commemorates the courage of 600 British soldiers charging a heavily fortified position during the battle of Balaklava in the Crimea six weeks earlier. 


Rotary Last Week – December 2, 2004

Former Charter Member Ed Hughes, presently in the Real Estate business, gave a most interesting presentation on negotiating. The same scenario used in real estate can probably be carried in most businesses (and private dealings) in life.

Paul Harris Fellow – Chairman Jack Emmer announced that Geoff Louis is now a Fellow!

Fruit Sale – Delivery time & date not finally determined. Very possibly could be after this am’s meeting. Hang in there!
