BACKPACKS FOR FOSTER CHILDREN
UPDATE! - New Member Amanda Bowen introduced a new Community Service initiative; Backpacks for Foster Children recently at Rotary.  Typically children in the foster program are given trash bags as they move throughout the system.  As you can imagine, their self worth is associated with these trash bags.

Next week, August 8, will be the final day we collect backpacks and funds for this program. 

Our goal is to collect 100 backpacks and to date have 75 in hand with cash for more!  For more information contact Amanda at bowenae@yahoo.com.  




 
PARTING SHOT
President Jack Graf and his tie. (July 25, 2016)

Thanks to all Columbus Rotarians for participating in our scientific necktie survey during the past several weeks. Both video surveillance and a special cell phone app underwritten by Luke McCormick were used to tally the actual numbers wearing ties to our meetings. By disqualifying both Paul Blevins and Calloway Robertson from the count because they are officers; the results are clear. In a cutting of President Jack’s tie ceremony on Monday-  The Carl Faehnle necktie rule has been adopted ---ties are no longer derigeur at our meetings.
