President's Corner ~ February 20, 2020

Bob Garagiola, President St Louis Rotary 2019-202
At last Thursday's meeting, I stated that our Club 11 membership now stands at 133. We have added 8 new Rotarians since July 1 and there are 8 or 9 prospective members in the pipeline. Another Get to Know Rotary Breakfast is scheduled at the M.A.C. for March 18.

Here's another number to consider, 44. That's how many Club 11 Rotarians, Satellite Civilians, and Rotaracts attended last week's Happy Hour at Pietro's. (There might have even been a few more) Check us out on FaceBook, Instagram or Twitter to see pictures of a fun evening of members, friends, family and business associates having a good time … Rotary-Style!

See for yourself that Club 11 is becoming a melting pot of ages and backgrounds and interests; but, in the final analysis, we are Rotary! It is all of our people that make our club strong and make it attractive.

Why Rotary? Why not Rotary!

President Bob

P.S. Don't forget to reach out to those members that we haven't seen recently. Invite them to re-join us on a Thursday. Or, join us at a Trivia Night.....or at a Happy Hour …..or .. ???

Alleygations Week 21 Feb 10, 2020

Another evening in Paradise or at least a slice of Heaven at the Olivette Lanes. Rotary Bowling is GREAT! If you (yes YOU) have been in Rotary any time and you have NOT joined the league or simply come by, WHY NOT! See your Rotary friends having some fun in friendly competition. All are welcome. You can always join in to the 50/50 drawing, too.

For men’s individual honors, Ralph Decker had a great evening. A 256 high game (high game for the season so far), capped with a 661 scratch series. Don Lorenz rolled with a strong 225 game and a 580 series. Bob Zangas (Zoltar) and Dave (cowbell) Cowell had 200 games.

Our ladies were led by Rose Cooper with a 149 high game and 425 series. Katie LaMarsh had high handicap at 231.
