OUR LUNCH and PROGRAM
MONDAY'S LUNCH PROGRAM
"An insider's view of the Division, it's updates, and how Ohio's bourbon drinkers have benefited by a new way of thinking."

July 8, 2019
  

Superintendent Jim Canepa
Ohio Division of Liquor Control 

Jim Canepa is Superintendent of the Division of Liquor Control. He joined the division in February 2017 to provide project leadership for the Liquor Modernization Project (LMP), the state’s effort to modernize systems and processes across the liquor enterprise.

Under Canepa’s leadership, the division has replaced a 40-year-old inventory system with the Microsoft Dynamics AX system, added 17 new Liquor stores towards the goal of 20 by January 2019, reduced delisted inventory by 58% (75,418 bottles) since November 2017, and has started the process of enterprise-wide merchandise-category optimization with 125 of 465 Liquor stores scheduled to be re-set by October 2018.

THE FAMILY OF ROTARY


PP and DGE Steve Heiser's mother passed away in Cleveland on June 24, 2019.  Her obituary can be viewed here.  

Keith and Nadine Pierce lost their daughter Kristen Clevenger of Wichita, Kansas on June 17, 2019.  Her obituary can be viewed here.   

Jim Tornes is still recovering from hip surgery in May.

Paul Baldridge has knee replacement surgery planned for this summer.     
 
ANGEL FUND CREATED

In May, the Club Board created an Angel Fund to help fellow members pay their dues at challenging times.  The Board felt that they would rather create this type of fund to help Rotarians that are making an impact upon the Club, rather than terminate them for lack of payment. 

If you would like to contribute to the fund, contact Scott Brown at 614-221-3127.  Donors are able to direct their funds to a particular member if they choose.
