A HUGE MEETING ON MONDAY!

CLUB RECOGNITION: END POLIO NOW

Jeff Reed, our past District Governor recognized our Club on our End Polio Now efforts. More than 1.5 billion children have been immunized, and 122 counties no longer see Polio. There were still 23 new cases of Polio this year, and RI continues to fight that battle.

STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP AWARDED

Rotary honored OHS student Shannon Russell, where school counselor Lauren Black recognized him for a heavy class load, ability to rise over hardships, determination in pursuing either a criminal justice or high performance auto technology degree, and his cheerful demeanor. Rotary honors students throughout the year, providing funding for continuing education.
 

CLASSIFICATION TALK: "RAMON: AN IMMIGRANTS JOURNEY"

Ramon Aguirre offered his classification speech, opening with "I've led a crazy life," detailing years of abuse and living on the streets of Mexico City, battered ear drums, being "cold, filthy and lonely," and finally moving to the U.S. to find his brother, escaping gang warfare, building a cleaning business and becoming a worldly entrepreneur. Author Kim Suhr described 40 hours of interviews with Ramon and the book product, with book sale proceeds Monday going to Oconomowoc Rotary. "Ramon built the relationships," said Suhr, "and now he shares his abundance generously." Friend Mike Welsh read portions of Ramon's story, saying "Nothing like reading an autobiography in front of the guy who wrote it."
