Conlon speaker at Rotary meeting
Mark Olson introduced Frank Conlon, executive director of the James River YMCA, who spoke to Rotary members.
Carrie Orn presided at the meeting, Nick Schmidt gave the table blessing, Gary Riffe and Jackie Tewes led the group in singing Christmas songs, and Bob Badal collected numerous “Happy Dollars” for the Salvation Army. The collection was more than $150. Dr. Jerrod Hann was a guest of Nick Schmidt; Rotary District Gov. Dave Smette also attended the meeting. Smette has been busy traveling the Rotary District the summer and fall and only has two clubs left to visit.
Student guests for December are MacKenzie Gerszewski, a senior at JHS, and the daughter of Steve and Kristi Gerszewski. Teagan Skunberg is a junior at JHS and the daughter of Eric and Julie Skunberg.
Today’s meeting is a special Christmas dinner with spouses and guests with music provided by the Lefevre sisters; Joan Morris will give the invocation and Nick Schmidt is the sergeant-at-arms. The next Rotary meeting will be Jan. 7.
