We are talking about the Lobster Feed, Saturday, May 14th at Windsor Golf Club. We will be promoting tables of 8 for the Lobster Feed. Now is the time to either lock in your table, or partner with another Rotarian to take over a table.

Jack Hyde is looking for a few good silent auction items. Current item count is 1.

John Hackenburg wants to help with buying power for good wines. He asks that members who would like to donate to the reinvigorated wine raffle can ask him to use his power… and their money, to buy wine for the raffle. Last year we netted around $14,000 we can do this again… even better.

Steve Klick wants all tickets will be sold through the website. Paper tickets are out, but the information gathering available through the website will give us a database for the future.

A Social Event for our Club

Join the members of the Rotary Club of Windsor for bowling from 4:00-5:00 PM

Bowling will be a blast, but you do not need to bowl this is a social event for our club, so please join us regardless of whether you intend to bowl.  Nothing to bring but there will be no-host snacks and drinks.

No matter what your plans are for Saturday evening, February 20th, start your night with Windsor Rotary at the Windsor Bowling Center on Conde Lane!

There will be a charge of $10 per bowler.


Giving thanks:

Tom Boylan gave a donation to John Lewis because he missed Robbie Burns birthday celebration last week. He wore the kilt to appease George Johnson and called the celebration of George Burns day official.

Maureen Merrill is our Rotarian of the month… dynamo of the month.


John Hackenburg  had a chance to knock over 5 of six, but the pot thickens! Should hit $700 by next week.



Renee Hyde announced she will be stepping down from her three year role as District Chair for Exchange Student Program. She told us about the joy of working with kids from all over the world united by Rotary.

Our outgoing students shared the fun of the event where they found out they were heading to Germany and France. Bill Bolster was at the event, along with John How and both shared the fun and excitement for not only the young participants, but the older ones as well.

We had a few extra moments at the end of the program, so Pres Marc had the table occupants discuss their first car. For the scribe, it might have well been her first 5 cars, because that is how many times Leslie Griswold crashed her 1964 Mustang.

Closing thought provided by Pres Marc:

Drive safe.
