My thoughts were with you all last week as I was in DC for my industry convention. Little did I know I would have to return earlier than expected on Tuesday night, due to my Mother being admitted to the hospital. So my busy week became more complicated. We all have trials in life, and I'm being tested right now. Back to ROTARY---- Tuesday, 9/20th, BIG E DAY for Norwich Rotarians, Mike Matera and Greg Allard are coordinating our delegation- please contact them immediately for transportation information. We need as many volunteers as we can get, it's a fun day and very rewarding activity, contact Mike at 860-8871400, or Greg at 860-234-6841. Also, 9/21/11, our regular Rotary meeting will still be at the Marina for this week and next. If it gets too cool we will move inside a room upstairs at the Marina Facility. Our District Govenor Rupi Rupwani will speak to us on Weds. 9/21/11 at 12:15pm. Please, make every effort to attend so we have a good representation of our members to meet Rupi.  On Saturday, 9/24/11, we have the District Foundation Meeting in Deep River, Dr Manny Kadish, Chuck Seeman and I are planning to attend, if you'd like to go call one us, to again coordinate transportation. Have a great week. Larry
