Our Club Secretary is given the opportunity to choose a way to recognize member birthdays for each new Rotary year. This year's Club Secretary,
Jon Roper, came up with this plan for birthday  recognitions this year:
Each member will receive a Rotary pen at the meeting during their birthday week. At the end of each month, names of those with birthdays that month will be put in a drawing. The member's name that is drawn will get to choose a local charitable 
organization or person doing good in our area. Our club will send them $25  plus Jon is personally matching that to make it $50 total and is accepting donations from our membership with the goal of sending at least $75 to the selected organization or person.
