Fall is nigh! This Thursday, September 22nd is the Autumnal Equinox…the First Day of Fall. After the autumnal equinox, days become shorter than nights as the Sun continues to rise later and nightfall arrives earlier. Isn’t this educational? Wait a tick, that would mean that Wednesday, September 21st is the last day of Summer. Come reminisce and celebrate the last day of Summer by joining your fellow Rotarians at our 3rd Wednesday Happy Hour.
Where: Solid Bar and Grill at 405 S. 8th Street.
When: See you at 5:30pm. Happy Hour ends at 6pm so don’t be late!!
