President’s Message

Fellow Rotarians,

Good afternoon and Happy Friday!  If you didn’t attend Tuesday’s meeting we have something in common.  However while Pres. Tom was predisposed Past Pres. Bill Hambrick took the helm and masterfully ran the meeting (or so he says).  Ron Loder of Loder Wines spoke to us about the wine making process and poured a number of varietals for us to try.  What a great time!

Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Club’s relief efforts for the victims of the Paradise Fire.  The smoke, while unbearable, is only a nuisance and a constant reminder of how tragic the situation is for those who have lost everything.  If you would like to continue to donate please follow this link:

A few reminders about upcoming events in the next few weeks:

  • Rotary Holiday Party – Dec 1st at Del Paso Country Club.  Make sure to sign up and bring your s/o!
  • Rotary Budget Workshop – Dec 3rd at Howe Park.  Want to give the board some input on how were we spend our funds and which projects to support?  Show up and give us your opinion!
  • Laurel Ruff Holiday Party – Dec 4th at Laurel Ruff elementary.  In lieu of our normal lunch meeting, participate in one of the club’s standing projects!  Never fear, no elf suits this year! J

Reminder that we will NOT BE MEETING this coming Tuesday 11/20.  Please enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.  We’ll see you on 11/27!

Yours in Rotary,

Thomas J. Goode
