Dear Rotarians and Friends,
Our District Supervisor, Matt LaVere is our guest speaker this week!!!  This is a wonderful opportunity to bring a guest as this will be an informative and engaging  program on County plans and priorities.
Last week Sarah Abrams gave us a sneak peek at Love VC Day on October 7, and some inspiration for more community opportunities to “Create Hope in the World”

We currently have two tables of 10.  If you would like to sign up, contact Cal.  If you can’t decide now, and wake up day of wishing you could go, you may also show up at the event with a check.
