President's Corner ~ February 06, 2019

Bob Garagiola, President St Louis Rotary 2019-202
Tom Chulick, CEO & President of the St. Louis Chamber gave Club 11 a great presentation on what is going on in the St. Louis region last Thursday. There were several surprises about how favorably St. Louis compares with other markets throughout the country. Tom emphasized that there are many good aspects of St. Louis that need to be better told. He encouraged us to help get this great story out.

He's right that we should share the good things of St. Louis and without saying "...but..."

We need to apply that thinking to Rotary. All that goes on at Rotary may surprise you.

Look at our Service Work - Lift for Life Gym - Boy Scout Food Drive - Gateway 180 appeal - Kidsmart - Community Service & CAP Grant Programs - Welfare Fund - Rotary Endowment - 8th Grade Awards - Young Citizens Awards and much more....

Consider the fun of our Social Events - Holiday Party - Happy Hours - Bowling League - Trivia Night.

Bowling Alleygations ~ David Cowell ~ January 27, 2020

ALLEYGATIONS- 1-27-20 - David Cowell

There were some GREAT individual and team scores for the night! And some very competitive matches. The 3rd quarter is up for grabs with 4 teams within 7 points of the top.

The evening started off with a “what could have been” story from last week - Steve LaFara was on the bench last week for Team Cowell. After seeing his high scratch game fall to League President Ralph Decker and Ralph on track to eclipse his high scratch series Steve left before Game 3, telling Ralph as he exited that he had it in the bag, “All you need is a 205.” This is after Ralph rolled a 265 & 216 in his first two games. Well the hex was on as Ralph could only manage a 186 in the 3rd game. It seemed to carry over to this week as Ralph had a 139 in Game 1 before righting the ship with a 192 and 246 to get his average for the night the hard way. Ralph beat his man, the missing Pete Milne who was the lone blind for the evening. Matt Wilson was above average with a 620 handicap for Team Decker, and Vic DiFate and Captain Jon were also above average for Team Soifer.

In the end, Team Decker squeaked out a 12-10 decision over the Soifer bunch and maintained their hold on 2nd place (only 3 points back of the league leaders).
