Meeting Recap
            Greetings fellow Rotarians! The theme for today’s meeting was fellowship.  In lieu of a speaker, members took the opportunity to tell the Club about themselves and explain why they joined Rotary. Often times we forget that a large component of Rotary is fellowship, so this meeting provided a great opportunity for members to connect with one another on a more personal level.
2019 Corn Booth
            Thank you to all of the Rotarians who have signed up for shifts! There, are however, many open slots and a number of Rotarians who have not yet signed up for slots.  Members can sign up through the following link:  Please remember that friends, co-workers and family members are not only welcome, but encouraged to help fill slots. 
Rotary Shirts
            Sharon Dettenrieder will be taking orders for new Rotary shirts beginning today and ending Sept. 4th.  The shirt is a cotton navy polo shirt with the Rotary logo embroidered on the left.  Here is the link to the shirt: The cost of the shirt depends upon how many we order, but the estimated cost is between $31 and $38 and will be billed to your Rotary account.  If you would like a shirt, please send Sharon an email at indicating the following: 1.) men's or women's shirt; 2.) shirt size; 3.) number of shirts you would like to order; 4.) your name.
Luncheon Price and Schedule Changes
            Our per person meal prices with The Essex have recently increased.  Accordingly, our meal prices will increase to $17.50 per person each week.  We are pleased to report, however, that there is a dessert and coffee only option priced at $6.50 per person.  We are also pleased to report that we will be holding two breakfast meetings at The Essex this fall.  These two meetings will be held at 7:30am on Wednesday, September 25th and Wednesday, October 30th.  Each of these meetings will be held in lieu of our luncheon meetings on those weeks.  Please stay tuned for more details.
