In honor of that, Sandra will be catering a special Holiday lunch!
Meeting with people is always good, but if you can eat together it becomes special.
Most Rotary meetings I have attended do include a meal, you would think "Where we meet, Let us eat!" is part of our motto.
But I think meals were added to our Rotary meetings for several reasons.
One, it's efficient. Most of us are eating anyway, so let's have some company as we chow down.
When we share food, we are also more likely to share ideas and find solutions to our challenges.
It makes us more approachable and is a good start to a relationship.
Stepping outside of our daily routine for a few minutes helps us refocus, we become better listeners, and eating together reminds us to be on our best behavior with good manners.
I can still hear my Mom say, "Sit up Straight", "Use your Napkin", "Don't talk with your mouth full", and more.
After having good speakers, having a good meal is the next most important thing in growing a Rotary Club.
Both are ongoing projects, and we thank Mike Weaver and John Salter for their hard work.
We have just reset our menu options, and based on your suggestions, expect Tam's, Jim n’ Nicks, Giorgio's and Sandra Bottoms.
We have a great Club, and you are the most important part!
Quick Reminder, Wreath orders are due in this Wednesday.
Our Next Regular Board Meeting is November 14th at 11:00am.
Please remember that there will not be a meeting on Wednesday, November 21.
We will meet again on the following Wednesday, November 28 at the Junior Achievement Discovery Center, 1150 Lanier 400 Parkway.
