Joke for the day:  My neighbor's son has been chewing on electrical cords.  They had to ground him! haha!  He's currently doing better.  haha! 
Don't like that one?  What are the strongest days of the week? Saturday and Sunday because the others are weekdays!

How wonderful to see everyone at our social!  A great time to share a pint, raise some funds to fight polio and meet new friends of our Rotary friends! 
Thank you all who came out!  It's never too late to contribute to end polio
We had some Halloween fun this week, it’s kind of the beginning of “high season” for community service. 

We have lots coming up: the Veteran’s Day Parade, Salvation Army Bell Ringing, and taking care of Families for Christmas! 

We’ve also started planning for our upcoming Double Down Casino Night.  This is SunUp’s primary fundraiser.

All that- between now and Christmas!  We even have a tri-Club food drive, blood drive and holiday party in that mix as well!  Lots to do, for everyone. 

We need you!  We need your “can-do” attitude, your smile and your support for these activities. 

Join us!  If you’re not sure who to contact about anything- please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.  

Also, a reminder for folks who didn’t make the Club meeting last week or this week- I need a picture of you as a child or young adult by our November 2nd meeting. 

You can email it, or hand it to me at a meeting.  I’ll snap a photo of it, and you can take the photo home with you. 

Tie a string around your finger, put the picture in your vehicle, whatever you need to do to remember. Don’t make me reach out to your spouses…

Make it a great week and see you soon!
