GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER! LAST CALL!
Last call to sign up for dinner! Our second GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER event will be Saturday, January 11th. Here's how it works: You can sign up to be either a "host" or a "guest". If you are a guest, you will be told where to go for a fine Rotary dinner at an undisclosed member's home.  Guests come empty handed; you are not allowed to bring anything ( you could bring your favorite  adult beverage to share, but not required). If you are a "host", able to sit 6 to 8 people, you will prepare the entire meal. You will not know who your guests will be.  This is for singles or couples, assignments will be random and secret. Sign up sheets will be available in early December. (You can also download the sign up sheet from our website, under "club documents")  iSign ups must be received by December 15th.This is a fun way to get to know your fellow Rotarians!  WE NEED HOSTS!
ODDS 'N ENDS
Don't forget to vote for Mayor on Tuesday..........lots of guests last week.....John and Carrie were both in Costa Rica last week-never ran into each other.....Cafferty was in Cabo at the same time.....Allan made his last trip to U of I for football since his daughter is graduating this year..where does the time go?......Jeff is coaching a girls high school wrestling team......Will passed around a sheet for everyone to sign up for a committee, including "Committees we don't even know about".........fun to hear Ally Smith tell about her year in Roskilde, Denmark.....
