“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country's cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.” – Abraham Lincoln

Guests and Visiting Rotarians

Brett Burton – guest of Joe Kosner, Asst. Principal West Aurora HS

Jennifer Carillo – junior at WAHS and outbound exchange student 2015-2016

 

Laura & Lorenz Update

Laura and Lorenz spent a Saturday in Chicago with other exchange students. While the girls shopped, Lorenz waited.

They both had a Golden Corral experience and came away stuffed.

Laura will be performing in the winter concert at WAHS December 4th. Laura also joined a new club at WAHS, the detention club. She is excelling at detentions with 5 this year.

 

Youth Exchange

Applications are due November 22nd and they are starting to come in. There are 7 out of 10 out-bounds from Aurora with 6 from West and 1 from East.

 

Festival of Lights

November 22 we will be putting together a light display at Phillips Park. So far we have Joe, Tom, Jack, Kelly and Chris. This event is for the Noon Club and their Festival of Lights display in Phillips Park. We will begin at 8:30am.

 

Wine and Chocolate

We are on our way to planning the event. Sponsorships should be turned in to Joe Kosner. We are talking to some printers about doing the booklet and tickets.

 

Speaker

We skyped briefly with Juraj from Slovakia. He is enjoying himself and keeping himself busy. He was disappointed that Chris has decided to take the Presidency next year, he thought he would come back for that. It is always good to catch up with students and to see how Rotary has helped transform their lives.

 

50/50

The pot is growing and this week it was $240. Karen Olsen had the winning ticket but the joker alluded her once again.
