Bill Nance shared highlights from his 50 year career in radio broadcasting with us today. A true Dayton legend and a great speaker. 

 

From the 60's to the present day - Bill has seen and heard it all. The technology has changed but the message remains the same. Melody Morris assisted with his presentation and his been his co-host over the years. You can hear them both on FaithandFriendsradio.com

In the 1970's .Don was one of 14 educators that had a private invitation to travel to Japan from a gentleman who ran prestigious private schools there.
Today Don shared some great memories and memorabilia with us. Many highlights of his trip were both funny and heartwarming. 
Here you see his lovely assistant, Marilynne, modelling a traditional Kimono. 
He showed several postcards of drawings of Hiroshima, as depicted by the survivors. 
 
What a fun 72 hours! We participated in the annual Holiday at Home Event selling burgers, hot dogs and fries on Sunday and Monday and then on Tuesday several Rotarians had a guided tour of the Mound Cold War Discovery Center.  It's great fun to be a Rotary Member!

We also said a final 'Goodbye' to Russ Holtz for his 19 years of service to our Club as he moves to sunny Florida. We wish him all the best. You will be missed Russ.
 
We say 'See Ya Soon' to Amy Schrimpf as she will be moving to the Social Club instead of our regular club. She will be our STRIVE Liaison for the Social Club. She also vows to pop in now and again to visit with us for lunch.
