Well it was a lot toastier at this week’s meeting. The heat was back in running order.
President Cheryl was back and running this week too. Cheryl thanked Ellen for hosting our annual Holiday party which I must say she did a spectacular job. It was a great time, lots of great food, cozy fire and fantastic company. Also, thanks to President-Elect Linda for doing a terrific job covering for our President last week.
The Salvation Army Ringing of The Bells totals are: DRUM ROLL!!!! Dartmouth Rotary Club - $548.25, Fairhaven Rotary Club - $202.80 and New Bedford Rotary Club - $1,320.04. Great job and thank you to all that participated.
It was announced that Ron Kierstead and Orren Robbins have both resigned from the club and we wish them well. On a happier note Carl Soares was here as a guest but just for this week. He is rejoining our club so he will be a Rotarian again. Welcome Back!!

If everyone can start thinking of who they can invite as guests so we can have a successful night of possible new Rotarian.
