Thank you Rotarians for your generous razor donations - we have completed that goal. Our next request is for donations of gift cards for our upcoming fundraiser for MS at Romers. Please bring gift cards for restaurants, services or favorite stores to an upcoming meeting. 
Kettering Rotarian Bill Lindahl and his wife Kathy are traveling again!  This trip takes them to  Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and Burma. Here is a photo of the flag exchange in Marina City, Singapore. The Lindahl's are proof that no matter where in the world you roam - you're always among Rotary friends.

A Salute and Helping Hand to Our Veterans.


Our club collected much needed clothing for homeless Veteran's here in the Miami Valley. In addition to clothing over $300.00 was donated to buy new underwear and socks for the recipients as well.  On December 31st our club will also help host a New Year's Eve Party at the VA. 


A big thank you to Mel Haines for spearheading this worthwhile project. We are proud to have amazing Rotarians like Mel identify a need and then take the lead for our club and community. 


Our Speaker was 90 year old Navy Veteran Ralph Young who told us about  his World War II experiences and his inspiration for his two books on the subject.

A special visit from Neide and Joezil Barros from the Rotary Club of Do Recife District 4500 in Pernambuco Brazil. Last year Mer and Al hosted the children for Thanksgiving and today, both parents were visiting the States and stopped by. It's always fun to have global members join us!
Pernambuco is a state in northeast Brazil, on the Atlantic Ocean. Its modern capital, Recife, features a port, old town and popular beach area of Boa Viagem. Offshore, the volcanic archipelago of Fernando de Noronha has a jagged coastline, undeveloped beaches and a marine park. South of Recife, reef-protected Porto de Galinhas beach offers natural pools. North lies Olinda, a colonial town amid lush vegetation. Pernambuco is the seventh-most-populous Brazilian state by population (9,277,727)
