This Week  

 

Well we didn’t quite make it to the bakers dozen only 11 Rotarians.  It was quite a drop from last week’s great attendance.  We did not have a guest speaker this week but had an enjoyable short video about the Beads for Hope Project.  The video was very informative explaining the Children of the Dump which is where all the children start out.  It showed tremendous effort and determination for these children.  I have included the YouTube video website below for all to review to get a full understanding of this project which we are supporting and selling the Beads for Hope.  After watching the video you will see how fortunate we are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2vddEVgy7o 

 

Marc Shpritzer – gave us an update on Breakfast with Santa.  If you would like to help out at this event t please contact Marc.  Also, if all could let Marc know how many tickets you have sold to have an idea of a head count.

 One More Thing

 

Thanksgiving dinners take eighteen hours to prepare.  They are consumed in twelve minutes.  Half-time take twelve minutes.  This is not coincidence. – Erma Bombeck
