Dear Club,  

Tomorrow we have another great speaker, Jeffrey Jensen, FBI Special Agent, coming to talk to us about business account takeovers. In order to give him as much time as possible for his presentation, I will be starting the meeting around 11:55 instead of 12:10 so please try to be on time.  We will not have time for much club business so I'm going to give you the announcements via email now:

  1.  Pints for Polio was a success!  What a fun event!  Amanda Taylor is one of our newer Rotarians and she did a FANTASTIC job planning this event.  The music was superb, the food was tasty, and the beverages were top notch.  We will have those final figures for you next week.  If you missed the event and still want to donate, please see either Amanda Taylor, Kristy Vandenberg, or myself.  

2.  We need volunteers who would like to help with the Veterans Breakfast on November 7th which is just 2 weeks away!  If you would like to help, please email Donna Peterson at  

3.  We have the Schreiner basketball mixer on November 8th.  If you want details about this get with Kristy Vandenberg.  

4.  Our Christmas Party will be December 12th.  Please save the date.  It will be held this year at the Inn of the Hills.  

5.  Superball planning has begun!  If you are interested in helping plan our big fundraising event, please get with Charlie McIlvain or Amber Thomason to find out how you can help.  Save the date of February 2, 2019.  As you know this is our main fundraiser and our goal is to raise $50,000 that we use for scholarships for local high school and college students and to run our other projects like Blue Santa, Veterans initiatives, advanced training grants for First Responders,  Chalk Fest sponsorship,  Harper 5K walk/run, etc.  It's a fun event with food trucks with awesome food, drinks, and other tailgating events!

6.  Christmas is quickly approaching.  Dave Samuel will be looking for volunteers soon to ring the bell for Salvation Army at Gibson's.  Stay tuned for additional information soon.  

See you tomorrow - five minutes early!!
