and places that populate our memories leave an indelible
mark on the manuscript that becomes our life story. A day at
the Louisiana Purchase Exposition in 1904, meatless meals
and hard times during the Great Depression, or knowing
Mark McGwire’s precise homerun count that summer of

Each week I will highlight something about Rotary that all Rotarians should know or be aware of. FIRST NAMES OR NICKNAMES - From the earliest days of Rotary, members have referred to each other on a first-name basis. Since personal acquaintanceship and friendship are cornerstones of Rotary, it was natural that many clubs adopted the practice of setting aside formal titles in conversations among members. Individuals who normally would be addressed as Doctor, Professor, Mister, the Honorable or Sir are regularly called Joe, Bill, Charley or Jerry by other Rotarians. The characteristic Rotary club name badge fosters the first-name custom.

Golf Alleygations July 29, 2020

Golf League-Partial Rain-out for St Louis Rotary Golf League 7-29-20
Another great course, Norwood Hills, was ready to challenge the Rotary golfers on Wednesday, 7/29. The only problem was that the rainy weather decided to halt the challenge before the front 9 were completed! Ken Schuman and Jim Gidcumb were having a great round and they had to be bribed with cocktails to get them off the course! Despite the rain out, the dinner and socializing were a great way to finish up the day.

The next scheduled outing is August 12th at Forest Hills Country Club. All are welcome!
