Happy $$$:

  • Dorothy Tecklenburg happy to make the LAST tuition payment and tried to explain Sabrina’s dissertation and in layman’s terms she is a Rock Star (we always expected that).
  • Susan Price putting things back into some sort of order after Bill’s big celebration.
  • Tom Drewitz  happy to see Nat Roe at the meeting today
  • Bill Mesler a happy $5 to celebrate Sandy’s dance recital and happy Rich and MaryJo’s 3 grandchildren were involved; also went to California to be “warm” but there was better weather here at home.
  • Liz Rogers happy to get an “early” birthday card – birthday is in September…this will be corrected, sorry.

  • Phil Rush happy Connie will watch Dancing with the Stars while Phil enjoys the PENS on the BIG TV!
  • Bob Hillberry happy NAT but also sad…just take my money!
  • Joe Manning let us know Tripp not with us because his Dad is not doing well again…this was NOT a happy dollar but rather a service announcement.
  • Erv Leppert just happy to donate
  • Rachel Lozosky after spending a full day at work was dining at Angelo’s and was happy to receive Gelato cake for desert…from Bill’s birthday celebration
  • Joe Piszczor President Joe happy to be winding down his “term and a half”

Program: City Wide Development

Christy Bean Rowing, Executive Director of City of Washington City Wide Development Corporation gave an interactive program that led to explaining her role in all efforts to improve the City. Using effective flip charts Christy had the question “What would you do if I gave you 5 million dollars to spend on yourself?” Then the same amount of money to spend on a Rotary function and then after all considerations what would you change or improve with your ideas?
The intent was to give a prospective on the various project now in the “works” to improve the City and what could be done in the future will be accomplished with both planning and of course funding.
This was a GREAT program and it is evident that progress will continue under the positive leadership from Christy, a fairly new Rotarian and an active member.

Thank you, Christy, and thank you for being "a Rotarian at Work!"


Other Rotarians at work!
