Brett Ingersol’s name was drawn for the jackpot today, his number has been coming up a lot lately!

Happy bucks: Sandie Graf was happy to attend the Husky 5K with her mom and 3 grandchildren and her son was also home to attend the Daddy/Daughter dance.  Deb Howard said the Amish tour and the Daddy/Daughter dance were both a success.  Steve Sanders spent the weekend with sons and grandson. Gene Fuelling was happy to be able to golf.

Our speaker today was Steve Sanders on Hickory Grove and Edgewater golf courses.

Sid Sickles a former Rotarian from Guttenberg dropped in for a visit.

You are all invited to Fernando Gimenez, our Rotary foreign exchange student’s graduation party on May 11th from 11:00 am to 1:00 p.m. at Luigis.  His family from Paraguay will also be in attendance.  Thanks to all who made donations of food and money for the party.  This will be the only chance to meet his family since they will not be in town for our Rotary meeting on Monday following graduation.

The Nelsons, Bouskas and Streittmatters have volunteered to host the foreign exchange student for the next school year.  Thanks to them for their willingness to participate.

 OCAD and Positively Oelwein hosted a Daddy-Daughter dance that was a great success.

 OCAD will hold its annual golf tournament on June 14th . You can choose 9 or 18 holes.  Hole sponsorships are also available. Also, mark your calendars for the Rotary Annual Golf Tournament on Saturday, August 17th.

 Clean up Chrysler Park tonight, May 6th at 5:00 p.m.

 Please give generously to the Rotary Foundation so we can meet our goal.
