THANK YOU, EVERYONE, who came out last Saturday to rake leaves!  What a huge group!!!  What a large amount of leaves we raked!!!  Special thanks to spouses, youth groups and several community members who made all of our jobs go faster.  I think everyone was done by noon.  Great job!!!

Recognized for their faithful service as CHEFs for all events when called upon,
Terry Jones, Perry Jenkins and Mark Wurtenburger were each presented with an official "chef hat" during the regular meeting last Thursday.  Two of the "crew" were not in attendance and will receive their hats at a later date - TJ Adams and Daniel Brice.
 
This group of dependable and talented Rotarians can flip hamburgers and hotdogs faster than anyone and smile while doing it.  They are promoting Rotary throughout our valley just be being actively involved in many events when called upon to cook.
 
Thank you, each one of  you, for your willingness to serve, mostly behind the scenes but always promoting the Rotary 4-Way test.  You have to believe they are also HAVING FUN! 
We had a very interesting and informative board meeting last week.  I wanted to report to the entire membership the results of two major items:
 
1st - There have been many questions/concerns about our charging members for meals they don't eat because they can't attend that day for one reason or another.  After looking at our bank balance and our spending patterns over the last couple of years and much discussion:
 
         Treasurer TJ Adams moved that we no longer charge for lunches not eaten but increase our monthly dues $1.00  a month (total $2.50). 
         Wendi Kern seconded and the motion passed.  This will go into effect for the October billing
 
2nd - After hearing a report from Membership Chairman Chad Taylor, the board voted to expend up to $500 to purchase a bell and gavel for the Kuna Club once it is formed.  Our club is the sponsor for the Kuna Club; Chad is our contact person for Kuna.
 
If you have any questions about either expenditure, please don't hesitate to contact me.

My new "the Rotarian" magazine arrived yesterday and, as is my habit, I poured a cup of coffee this morning and sat down with the magazine.  WOW!  It is full of stories that reflect the many lives of many Rotarians and the people they help. 
 
The very first paragraphs of the very first article, "Eight Little Words", are still running through my mind.  To quote the article,
 
"RI President Ian H.S. Risely expressed his concern in the August president's message that we have "had a difficult time conveying the scope of our work."  Later he asks, "What does Rotary do?"   I'd (the author of the article, not me) like to offer an answer in just eight words.  The compact response is derived from posing three questions:
What do we do?  Where do we do it? How do we do it?
 
Consider:  What do we do?           Improve people's lives
                Where do we do it?      Locally and globally
                How do we do it?         Through Service
 
......we are a leadership organization with a deceptively singular focus:  Improve people's lives, locally and globally, through service.
 
I really can't imagine a better way to describe what Rotary is.  Let us continue, as a club and as individual Rotarians, to "improve people's lives, locally and globally, through our service."

The Four-Way Test 
The Four-Way Test – which has been translated into more than 100 languages, asks the following:
* Is it the TRUTH?
* Is it FAIR to all concerned?
* Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS? 
* Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
