Club News
 
On Friday, SOMC officially conducted a groundbreaking for the new Hospice addition after a successful Transcending Lives campaign led by our own Mary Arnzen.  It was great for a few of us Rotarians to be there for the ceremony (Tess Midkiff, William McKinley, Gerald Jenkins, Mary Arnzen and President Samantha Comer) to help celebrate this milestone and our small part in contributing to the project.  
   
 
Two new Rotarians were just inducted this month, Kyle Copley welcomed by his sponsor Stan Jennings and Rodney Hamilton introduced by his sponsor Tim Angel.  Please welcome these new members to our club as we try to reach 100 members by October 2020 - our 100th anniversary.  Kyle is the new Principal at the Scioto County Career and Technical Center.  Stan has high hopes that Kyle will take over at a fryer saying he knows his fish.  Rodney is a past employee of Jets popcorn and now serves as Purchasing Director at the Hillview Retirement Center.  Welcome Kyle and Rodney!
 
If you missed last week's meeting, you missed a great presentation by our outgoing exchange student Caden Wilcox who is just back from almost one year abroad in Germany.  He spoke not only of his time in Germany but also side trips to Rome and the Alps.  Resplendent in his pin strewn jacket, he told of tough times taking class in German after only having started to learn German 3 months before his departure.  Caden spoke of hunting with hundreds of other by walking arm in arm across the fields and shouting "Deer" or "Boar" to the left or right.  He went to carnivals in costume and skied displaying the American flag in a picture.  What a great ambassador for us to Germany and what a life changing experience for this young man who is only now 17 and just entering his senior year in high school.  Thanks Caden for sharing your experiences.  Hope you'll be a Rotarian some day.
 
You may notice a name change.  We just discovered that we cannot play Bingo and also have a Cash Bar.  So the 10 main prizes worth at least $200 each will be given away as Door Prizes and other prizes will be given to Game and Live Auction winners.  (Game participation is optional.)  Check out the list of Prizes and Live Auction Items on the 100th Anniversary tab above.  More will be added in the coming weeks.  Rotarians who would like to donate Live Auction prizes should contact Tess Midkiff or Mary Arnzen.  Tickets are available from any Rotarian and at the Welcome Center.  Only one month until the event!
