A Great Fall Fundraiser! 
Thank you for all who supported our Fall Fundraiser Event!   
Almost 70 attended in-person.    Many items were donated.   We shared fellowship, information about Rotary, enjoyed good food, Bingo, and 50/50. 
Lynette Markofski and her volunteers made the event run smooth.   We will review the event, highs/lows, and results for a report. 
We have tentatively raised $6,165.

Three grants are approved. We will have a lead Rotarian on each grant as we work as a team, together.
