Meeting of August 9, 2017

Chris Carr lead us in an organizational meeting of what we need
to do to have a successful Golf Outing for 2017.

The invocation was by Bill Yaeger ….. A Thanksgiving Prayer
Oh, God, when I have food help me to remember the hungry. When I have work, help me to remember the jobless. When I have a warm home, help me to remember the homeless. When I am without pain help me to remember those who suffer. And remembering, help me to destroy my complacency and bestir my compassion. Make me concerned enough to help, by word and deed, those who cry out for what we take for granted. …. Amen ….. Samuel F. Pugh

Program was the 2017 Charity Golf Outing:
Chris Carr led the Rotary Fundraiser Golf Event discussion discussion today. The goal is to raise $32,500. As part of this goal, each member is asked to sell at a minimum of 17 raffle tickets to get all 1000 tickets sold. There are numerous roles and opportunities to help, and an all-hands-on-deck approach will accelerate our preparations as we head into crunch-time in August.
