Black Duck Sells for $22,425

Who knew that an old carved black duck decoy could sell for so much.  Guess I'll be keeping my eyes open at yard sales from now on.  Click here to read the details.

Unique Visitors

It really amazes me at how far our message travels.  I just clicked on sitemeter to see who's been reading our posts and I noticed one small dot in the middle of the pacific.  We just had our first reader from Hawaii... Honolulu to be exact.   Hang Ten!!

Weekly meeting update

We had almost full attendance yesterday.  Bob McDonald gave an update on the two scholarship funds we manage.  It's our goal to expand the program to include additional towns and more fundraising will be needed to build the base.  One of the other topics discussed was the scholarship recipient changes we may be putting forward.  Starting in 2012 we will be requiring recipients to visit one of our breakfast meetings to learn more about our club and Rotary and so that we can meet the people that benefit from our gift.  This only makes sense.  What we'll offer them is an opportunity to apply for the $30,000 Ambassadorial Scholarships that are given out by the district each year. 

Carl Good cleaned out his closet and was delivering a car load of books.  This guy is always busy and we're lucky to have him in our club.  He also gave us a brief update on the Bangladesh project reports currently underway.
