September 25th, 2014 Newsletter

Rest in Peace, Ron.
This week one of our loyal, respected Rotarians passed away during his 20th year as a member of the Rotary Club of Weyburn.  Ron, we will remember you with fondness and we mourn with your family.  You can see the obituary here:

President Dale and Anna are back from their trip to England.  Ray and Pat did a great job of covering presidential duties while Dale was away.
Lynne Kot who was guest speaker on September 18th spoke about Concert Series.
Here Miriam and Bev are having a chat while guest Terry listens in.
Vance and Ray look mystified by our alphabetical system for name tags.
Everyone hears what's for lunch.
Dale and Myron present the Golf Ball Drop third prize $1000 cheque to Doug Probe.
Dale presents the second prize $3000 cheque to Ken and Susan Kot.
Cody Grimes who won first prize of $5000 returned $2500 to Rotary.  Garnet turned his winnings from the putting contest back to Rotary as well.  We admire these men and thank them.  Here's Cody receiving his cheque.
Here's a photo of the golf ball drop which Henry Jones took from a different angle.
While Dale and Anna were in England, they attended a Rotary meeting in Retford where they exchanged banners.
They stayed with Alec and Marion whom they met in Taiwan on the Rotary Friendship Exchange.
This matters only to Jill, Michele, and Brenda but Marion owns a quilt shop where stitchers can come to shop and visit.
How well do you know your fellow Rotarians?
Last week's question:  Which nosy Rotarian is asking members for their birth years?  Brenda.  This is because Rotary International wants the information.
This week's question?  36% of our members were all born in which decade?
