The Last Time We Met (as reported by President Carole)

Last week we had an enthusiastic group. We presented 2 checks, one to Tom Riley and Stu Lawrence.

 

Our guest was Major Richard Jung of the Salvation Army.  He will be the guest speaker on October 10th.

 

President Carole asked the members to share the reasons they joined Rotary.  They did an excellent job. We have a dedicated group.

 

Thank you Carole for the update.

One More Thing – An Orren Classic

A schoolteacher asked her class to write a short essay and to choose their own subject.  A little girl sent in the following paper.  "My subjek is 'Ants'.  Ants is of two kinds, insects and lady uncles.  Sometimes they live in holes and sometimes they crawl into the sugar bowl, and sometimes they live with their married sisters.  That's all I know about ants."
