Greetings Monadnock Rotarians!
A small but hearty group was present for our meeting today. Jim Guy had Opening Words and Bill spoke about a conversation several years ago with an acquaintance that had committed serious crimes and spent time in prison. Our scheduled speaker was not available due to influenza which gave us additional time for socializing. Mr. Reinhart has offered to speak at a later date.
