winkHow about that "Hummingbirds" program last week by David Leatherman - talk about a comedian! Haven't heard that many one-liners in a long time plus a very interesting program. Make sure you tell JD that it was really a hit!!

enlightenedClubRunner - When you login to ClubRunner and go to  the "member area," click on the "view club documents" link and you will see that we have reorganized that tab to show all the Standing Committees and their activities, meeting minutes, reports, etc. for each committee. If you are a chairperson of a standing committee or a subcommittee, this is where you should post/store all your documents and reports. That way all members have access and we do not need to chase anyone down for anything. 
See you tomorrow!

Evening Group News

The evening group is focused on hands-on service in our community. We've recently agreed to focus time each quarter on activities where our members can get into the community and be of service face-to-face and at the same time be visible as Rotarian's in action. Our planned activities for the 2019-2020 club year are as follows:
1) Partnering with Putnam School. Activities include contributing tee shirts for Putnam Pride  Fridays, contributing expertise to leadership sessions for all 5th graders, a month of reading to kids in February, helping with the Coats & Boots distribution and with the neighborhood meetings this  fall, and assisting with the school carnival in early May. 
2) Promoting both the Ale Trail and the Foodie Trail at festivals and events in the community. 
3) Working on a Habitat Build 
4) Volunteering at an Ale Trail beneficiary 
5) Adopting Senior Citizens
