Welcome to 5th week of January, 2020.

Thanks for last week’s program presented by Ryan Quackenbush – Heroes Self Defense Foundation. We wish his K-9 partner a quick and comfortable recovery from his recent surgery.

Thank you to: Daniel Davis, Bill Torbert, Dr. Art Gilbert, Amystique Church, Mark Pugh and Bob Matsko for signing up to provide a program on at least one date between now and June 30th. There are still 9 weeks open. Please sign up now on the speaker list on the clipboard at the check-in desk, or by emailing Amy Dotson-Newton  to discover available dates and sign up. Beginning February 15th, I will assign dates which will be published in upcoming newsletters.

RLI, the Rotary Leadership Institute is scheduled nearby at Maple Dale Country Club on Saturday, April 4th, 2020.

The Dover Running Festival is scheduled for June 10, 2020. Please put this date on your calendar and make your plans around serving that day. I’ll ask that everyone participate as they are able please.

We have a service opportunity on April 25th to help the Delaware Division of Forestry with another tree planting event in Blackbird State Forest near Smyrna/Middletown.
