Welcome to September and in the calendar of Rotary the month of Basic Education and Literacy month.   Of course this is a special month of celebrating our own Literacy Programs.    We sponsor five schools in St. Catharines with the Gary Landry reading program.  As Doctor Suess said "The more you read the more things you will know.  The more things you learn the more places you will go"  The program needs two things to work  one being volunteers at the school if you can help or know someone that can help please let Linda Landry know.  The second is $$$.  To do this one of the main fundraiser is the Seasons of Cheer draw.  Tickets will soon be available
We have a full month of speakers this month including our first outgoing exchange student.  If you have ideas for speakers please let Phil know. 
Birthdays, anniversary are loaded to the bulletin  automatically.  You will see they are not always correct.  Please update your dates in club runner and the rotary.org
Looking forward to a great Lobsterfest tickets are still available.
