President's Message
Hey Emmaus Rotary!!!!
 
Guess what Thursday is???  Halloween!!!!(Hint, Hint, Hint)
 
Lets get festive!!! According to my sources (Google) Halloween originated with the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, which marks the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter or the "darker half" of the year.  People would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts.
 
So...... Do you dare to ward off the ghosts at Emmaus Rotary at this Thursday's meeting?  It could be worth some bling dollars to the Sergeant at Arms!!!
 
Have you had a chance to see the updates Valerie Daneen posted on our website www.emmausrotary.org?  Check it out.  She did a great job making it current.  Thanks Valerie for all your hard work this Rotary Year.
 
Also, thank you to the Board of Directors and others who joined in at the ERC Board Meeting last week.  I think I'm starting to get the hang of it, even though we ran a bit over the 1 hour allotted time.  With that said, we are gaining ground on getting things accomplished and gaining the transparency our club deserves.  Thanks for a great meeting.  I look forward to November's Board meeting.  Remember, it counts as a makeup!!
 
Lets have some fun this Thursday!!! See you all then.

The Right Stuff!
Two of our favorite programs throughout the year are inducting new members and recognizing perfect attendance, both of which were capably facilitated by Rotarian JP Raynock last week.  The meeting began with a rousing group sing-along of R-O-T-A-R-Y leading into the presentation of new members and their sponsors – Steve Stauffer (Steve Gould), Patrick McNealis (Rick Zayaitz), Shannon Boyle-Schuster (JP Raynock) and Wade George (Ashley Lorah). Unfortunately, only Wade could be present for the induction, but, please introduce yourself to the new members in the coming meetings.
 
It's interesting that in a new era when there isn't an attendance requirement we still have members with perfect attendance!  At this meeting JP recognized Cindy Hornaman and Don Blose for three years, Dale Dries for 47 and Wilmer Schultz for a league leading 67 years!  Congratulations to all four for this exceptional achievement.
