Next week, Tuesday, August 31 our noon meeting will be moved to a 4:30 Happy Hour at Greg's Grill as we celebrate our International Friendships.

The Veterans Village is coming together fast. Every facet of our community has been pitching in. Our own Michael Summers is donating the flooring for each of these units and of course you all know that Erik Tobiason has been a driving force behind this vision of a safe place for our veterans.

The village will provide emergency shelter for 15 individuals along with a community room. Now it's time to show what our Club can do. This is project that is "kid friendly" and your children 12 and over are welcome to see what community Service is all about.

Check this Youtube video out to see all the partners that are making this possible. Too many to list!

Please step up and sign up for a Rotary Work Day on Saturday September 11,

half a day or full day. You don't have to have a building background there will jobs for all skill levels. We will be painting, installing flooring, deck construction and more advanced stuff for those who are knowledgeable.
