Hello Rotarians.
Tom Warren gave the opening words.
Tom Blodgett gave the Hat story.  The speaker did not show up for our meeting and Tom was able to give us an extended hat story about his upcoming journey to Malaga Spain to participate in a seniors track and field tournament.  He had on display a discus, shot put, two javalins, as well as a pole vaulting pole and demonstrated techniques used to employ them on the field.  Tom’s talk was entertaining and left us wondering why he didn’t consider golf as an alternative.  Thanks again to Tom.
The club raised $350 in individual donations for Brentwood camp and with the matching $250 from the club the total contribution presented to Brentwood was $600.00.
Venu Rao, our Rotary District Governor will be visiting the MRC on September 25th.
The membership decided that holding the Opioid Run in October was a bit ambitious and decided that we would plan to hold the event next Spring.  Many Thanks to Bob Meissner for collecting information to and presenting the details of the proposed event to the club.
Jim Fearnside has offered to go to Maine in September to determine if the company presents a viable opportunity for the club to raise funds and to attend a workshop on the construction and installation of their product.  Jim has invited other members to join him if they would like to participate in the workshops. Thanks to Jim Fearnside for his efforts determining the feasibility of this project.
For August 28th meeting:
Opening Words this week will be Jim Fearnside.
