Include Rotary in your Travel Plans
  Ed Arnold, Laporte Indiana Rotary, was our guest speaker.   He joined Rotary in 1985 and has been assistant governor in his district.  He was on a Rotary Group Studies Program 35 years ago.  That program has been phased out but he was involved in projects to get sewing machines for women, mattresses for Mother Theresa, and Polio Plus.
  He had an outstanding memory in the Caribbean when he was asked to help a club move from one district to another.  Another was when he was in Calcutta, India and needed to catch a train.  He asked a stranger for directions, and the stranger was a Rotarian who took him to the train, changed his hotel reservations, and provided dinner.  In Mexico he asked about a plastic surgeon and a doctor and both turned out to be Rotarians who did really good jobs. 
  His message was to always include Rotary in your travels. Whenever you go anywhere, go to a Rotary meeting.  You never know who you might meet.

Silver Breach Pizza Gives Back
 
Dan Utroske is shown during the Silver Beach Pizza Giveback Event on January 29, 2020.  Approximately 150 members, partners and supporters turned out for the event.  The restaurant provided a 20% contribution on all food and drinks, both dine in and carry out during the day.  The night resulted in a donation of $270 for the club's community fund for use in service projects - and everyone enjoyed the food, drink and fellowship.  Thanks to Silver Beach Pizza for the support!!.
