Members Enjoy Biannual Club Picnic

Wednesday September 2nd turned out to be a great day for the club picnic. With Sertoma Art Center closed for maintenance, we decided to schedule the picnic a little early instead of canceling. Luckily the weather was agreeable. A little warm perhaps but not hot by any means. More importantly it did not rain. About 35 members attended and enjoyed burgers, hot dogs and other picnic goodies. The club performed its usual start to the meeting with a four-way test themed invocation, the pledge of allegiance and a well sung version of America the Beautiful. As I was walking through

Good Weather for the Club Picnic

With perfect weather on the Wednesday before the picnic, we all thought for sure it would rain on picnic day but the weather held out and we had a great time. Members met at the Cedar Hills Rotary Park instead of the usual venue. Sassool had hamburgers and hot dogs instead of their usual cuisine. Stella Ray, supervisor of Total Life Center in Raleigh, was made a Paul Harris Fellow. It was a nice afternoon for Rotary.

President’s Corner-May 2014

As I approach the last month and a half of my term as president of the Rotary Club of North Raleigh, I am amazed at how much we have accomplished together this year. Soon, there will be time to reminisce and look back, but today, we still have many opportunities ahead of us to serve and socialize. It is sorrowful for the club as we said ‘goodbye’ to a truly remarkable Rotarian and an even greater man…Jesse Schaudies. I know some of you attended his memorial service on Saturday afternoon at the Cypress and I appreciate you representing the club
