Most of our club's activities occur during the first week in October. We will have a club assembly on the 4th. One issue to be discussed is whether to keep a silent auction or go to a raffle for the items donated. Another event, on the 6th, is NYFS' "Taste of Northeast". This is held at Vadnais Commons. Our club makes a small donation to NYFS. Our member Sandi Bahr does a lot of work putting on this event. It is a fun night and I highly recommend it.

The overwhelming winner of the "Name our Fundraiser" is: "Rotary Taste of Hops", which was the brainchild of Paul Bartyzal. In addition to a hearty handshake, Paul will receive one free ticket to the event. Our committee is working hard and will have another meeting next week.

These are the first cases detected in the country since July 2014, and while this news is disappointing for all Rotary members, we are confident that Nigeria can defeat polio. Rotary provided $500,000 to assist immediately with the outbreak response, and an emergency response plan has been put...

Nations around the world will observe the International Day of Peace on 21 September, a date designated by the United Nations in 2001 as "a day of global ceasefire and nonviolence."
