Today was HAT DAY, in support of Mental Illness and most of our members were resplendent in quality headwear, however, some members came in wigs, which was of course not an acceptable “hat”, others resorted to stealing other members cycling helmets, using paper napkins from the table and one has to single out the President, who came in a combined dreadlocks wig with a strange bonnet attachment. However money raised was for a great cause.
Today is the 1st Day of the Christmas Raffle with tickets to be sold at the Book Market. Members are reminded to Pick up the folder (which contains absolutely everything you need to know) at start of each day, leave $20 float at end of day and return remainder of money collected at the next Rotary Meeting.

Chris & Bill’s Holiday Highlights
The holiday was mainly to see family, but they did catch up with former Exchange Students, however when driving through Europe with their trusted GPS device all was smooth-driving until they hit Czechoslovakia, which was not covered in their Western Europe Maps so 5 days were tackled with no language or navigation support.
Was won by Edith (again)
