So I have been given the task of writing about our Gala by our In-Flight Editor Larry. What can I say, if you were not able to join us for one reason or other, you missed the party of the year! What originally started out as a daunting event with only 80 registered two weeks prior, turned into a mega party by the 17th with over 385 Rotarians and guests registered!
Our committee was busy as beavers getting the room set up with flowers, chocolates and gifts on the tables the day of the event. Several of us Rotarians were walking around in jeans and shirts almost until 7:00 PM…way past the cocktail hour. As in previous years the band was superb; dance floor as full as you can get.
All I can say is thank you! Thank you to all who attended. Thank you to all our many helpers who made this event such a success. There are too many to list individually. Without all your help this would not have been possible. Our event raised over $ 7,000 for The Rotary Foundation with individual donations and baskets of chances.
We still have some matching points available for any donations over $ 100.00 (maximum amount of points with each donation is 100) If you wish to donate please make checks payable to the Rotary Foundation and send checks to PDG Frank Geraghty quickly before the points run out.
Look for photos to be posted on the District website soon, and also on our district Facebook page.
