Our last meeting of the Summer of '21!  We'll be live at Vincenzo's this week.
President's Pen
I can't believe that summer is almost gone! Summer officially ends at 3:21 PM on Wednesday, September 22nd.  Where is all that time I was going to spend outside? Where is my tan?! 
But fall starts with the Equinox - where the day and night are each about 12 hours long. Isn't that how we should be looking at things - reminding us to keep things in balance? 
I do hope I will see you at Rotary this week - with the start of a new season, it's a good time to pick up the habits that we've forgotten.  Each week, we see more people returning to our meetings - will you be one of them?
I'm excited about our speaker this week - we got to meet at the 5th Tuesday Social last month and Molly has a great story to tell - and we're the first Rotary club to have her as a speaker.  This will be a great meeting to bring a guest.  
And enjoy the last few days of summer!
Question of the Week
What didn't you get done this summer?
Another Map Board Completed - Aksarben
At our meeting, we decided that trying to do a couple of "Off-Tuesday" service projects would be a good idea - so here's our first one from September 14, 2021
Thank you to Mark Hobson and Darcy Michalek (and her nephew) for re-finishing the Map Board at Aksarben.  It took the 4 of us about 2.5 hours to get it all done.  It was not nearly as in as bad of shape as Zorinsky was, but this is a high visibility board.  We even had two people that said "Thank You" to us while we were working.
Here are the before and after pictures:
We still have a lot more of these that can be done - not only by us but by all the clubs.  What's next?
Weekly Meeting - Sept 21 2021
Our speaker Tuesday September 21 is a young woman who attended our social event on August 31 - Molly Hobson Vaida.  Molly owns the Landlock Gallery which is a artist market and Makers Shoppe and a lot more.  The topic for the meeting tonight will be how public art spaces contribute to city growth and talent retention, access to local art for all and ways that members can support local artist in their community.  For more about the Landlock Gallery, visit www.landlockgallery.com
Weekly Meeting - October 5 2021
Our speaker tonight is going to talk to us about the Cross Training Center.  At the center, they accept anything with a cord, battery, or motor.  And through the recycling process, they provide vocational job skills and training to youth and adults who are underserved and under employed.  They have 21 job skills that are taught through the process.   Find out more about how they are changing lives at our meeting on October 5th.
