Members, Family and Friends all helped out the Niagara Falls Community Outreach Soup Kitchen by unloading the Bus after their community Food Drive.  Even those with a broken leg were put to work.  Without a doubt..... Rotary is Family, Fun and Service above Self.
Scott and Karen Wright generously offered their beautiful home for our annual President's "Picnic". 
The ceremony included the award of a Paul Harris to our wonderful Past President BJ Romans. So important did we all feel that this award as deserving; that we invited the District Governor to present it. Thank you BJ for your great service to this Club.

Our second ceremony was to present a very deserving "Hero Award" to Nancy and Scott.  These two have steered our annual Ribfest through rain and shine for the last 15 years.  Over $500,000 has been  raised because of their "Service Above Self" attitude.    Thank you Scott and Nancy for your contribution to our community.
 
Scott and Nancy......   Super Heros

What a fascinating speaker.   Elisa Blowe grew up in a horse racing family and has continue the legacy having moved to Fort Erie to help run the Race Track there.  Every member listened intensely as she explained the behind the scenes details of the industry.   Thank you Elisa, your excitement and lovefor this industry was obvious.   We all learned so much.

Bob Artis, District 7090's Governor, visited our club this week. Prior to his inspiring speech, he presented to Michael Brown and Carrie Zaffiro recognition  that their service to the club and District has been true "Service Above Self".   Congratulations; and well deserved!
 
Scott Wright receives a cheque from "birthday boy" Chuck Hodgson for $900 made out to the Rotary Foundation.  That's $10 for every year.....  Chuck said he was taken to Las Vegas by his family.  He said he enjoyed himself but we all know, "What Happens in Las Vegas; Stays in Las Vegas!"
Thank you Chuck.  Your contribution to the foundation will make a difference to your community.
