Club Christmas party or liquor swap, you be the judge. A great time was had by all as we clebrate the giving season.


Jack Funderburg visited with us from Florida and everything is going well in the Sunshine State of Florida.

Rev. Mark Harkness was accepted into the Ordero of St Luke. Congrats mark!



Joel once again had the winning number but he drew the 3 of hearts.


December 14th 2011

Ron B was the first one to arrive for the meeting and he asked for a refund from previous late fines. His request was quickly reviewed and then DENIED!


Christmas Party December 21st this year will be the same as past years. Bring a wrapped gift worth $25-$30 and get ready for the grab bag. Oh there will be stealing of gifts and many gifts of liquid refreshment.


Joe reported this week that Trevor's basketball team at Washington Middle School is the #1 seed for The City of Lights Championship. They play in the semi-finals Tuesday night with a chance to be in the finals Thursday. Delani's team is undefeated this season with an average margin of victory of 20 points.

Next year District 6450 will be sending out 16 students to other countries. Of the 16, 10 will be from East and West Aurora High Schools. Click on the Youth Exchange tab to see a sponsorship request from one of those students to another Rotary Club. This is why the program is so important to our club. What amazing kids there are in Aurora.



Charlie sent happy bucks via email as his family had good news concerning his son in law. Sahid is exceeding expectations and he will soon be in a rehab facility.
