President Tom is filling our basket.  If you have not given him or let me know what you plan to donate for our Polio basket please do so today.  In support of Rotary's End Polio Now initiative, DG Tina will bring a basket from the Rotary Club of Jackson to auction at our Club meeting with her.  We will be presenting a basket for Tina to take to the Rotary Club of Minden the following week.  We are planning a special basket for her to leave with and are asking members to get creative and contribute items for the basket.

Last Week Area 4 Foundation Dinner

Our Foundation Dinner with John T Capp and DG Tina was very inspirational. John T shared intimate personal stories of the difference we make in so many ways through the Rotary Foundation!  It was fun to spend the evening with many of our own Club along with Rotarians from Area 4.
