Club Luncheon and Business Program
Ken Ruiz introduced our guest speaker, Cathy Heshmat.  Cathy is one of Ken's key mentors in business.  She is a former school teacher and the owner of Brit's House. Mom of 3 grandmother of 1. Her mission is to prevent one mother from walking in her shoes. She shared her powerful and emotional story with us.
There were a few minutes left in the meeting for these announcements:
Today was National Reptile Awareness Day (referring to Ken Ruiz’ finding a diamondback rattlesnake on his property). Bruce Richter’s tip: Shoes left outside should be shaken out prior to putting them on - you never know what might hide inside!
The Learning Tree is operational per Ken Donoughue. Members of our club sign up to read to children at Locke Hill Elementary School's Learning Tree program.  He will let us know the point of contact.
Today's book donation is courtesy of Allyson Hamlin.  Thank you Allyson for offering to donate books for the month of October!
Ken Ruiz offered to do the prayer and pledges for the month of October.
We still need volunteers for books and prayer and pledges.  Please sign up and let President John know so that he can get you scheduled.

Virtual Foundation Training Seminar Oct 29
We are hosting a 90-minute online training session on Thursday, Oct. 29 at 6:30pm about two aspects of managing Rotary Foundation programs in your club: fundraising and management reports.  It will be a Power Point presentation led by Assistant Regional Rotary Foundation Coordinator Rich Kaye with  assistance from our district-level team. 
There will be a brief overview about how your contributions flow into humanitarian projects and consistently top-rankings from charity watchdogs—but the meat will be the basics from Every Rotarian Every Year to individual and group recognition that you can manage to better lead your club. 
The training is designed for those leading Rotary Foundation programs in your club; which could be multiple people.  It is free but will be a controlled registration that is already available on the district website homepage.
Questions: Please contact our district’s Rotary Foundation Annual Fund chair PDG John Hutcherson ( or our district Rotary Foundation chair PDG Jerry Hardy (
