Literacy - an Expansive View
Brian Saxton attended Rotary's annual meeting in Toronto last . He thought the talk by James Marggraff offered several useful messages for our club. The talk includes Mr. Marggraff's three step method for problem solving: Clearly define the Problem to Solve (TPS), gather data, and define success and outcome measures.  The video is available below and at: https://youtu.be/lSulFP3j16M
  The book mentioned is Factfulness.
 
 
 
Christmas Party with a Twist
 
 
This year's Christmas party added a twist to the normal fellowship, food and carols.  Each table constituted a team, with a name selected by the table, and tried to win the Christmas trivia contest.  Such as: Who wrote White Christmas?  Jim Bentham was the quiz master with Cindy looking on (to make sure Jim stayed on script, which he didn't!). The Big Team won, thanks primarily to Sue Scherwitz and Kyta Utroske.

Benton Harbor Sunrise Rotary is well on its way to selling gently used treasures on eBay.  Some people have been calling it a garage sale because it replaced our actual garage sale. It is much more like an estate sale. We have over 40 items (with more coming all the time!) ranging in price from $8.99 to $850.00...including precious and costume jewelry, vintage dolls, kitchen items, a sleigh,  and too many unique items to list them all here.  In order to access the eBay list easily, use either the hot link or scan the QR code below.
