JB deserves a medal! He was at the Rod and Gun Club at 4 AM (he didn't tell other Rotary members that he was going to be there that early, of course) to start cooking the ribs because he was worried about the rain forecast for later in the day. When I arrived for my 1 PM to 3 PM volunteer shift, the ribs were done including a large batch that had already been delivered to St. Francis House. Normally, the ribs would be done at 4:30 to 5:30 PM. He is amazing. So very thoughtful. Exemplifies #ServiceAboveSelf.

Judi Damon has spoken to our club before he is always a great speaker and a great asset to the college. I am so proud of the Flagler athletics team and kids. There is so much great talent, however I am always so impressed with their great sportsmanship as it always shines the brightest. I am lucky enough to be able to host their tennis team for a Flagler College Tennis fundraiser at Harbour Island on October 12 and 13. Come out and join us and support the tennis team at Flagler college Thomas Hipp will be there with these kids showing us how amazingly talented these young people really are

Really liked that presentation! Informative and interesting 😁

The EarlyAct Club had a great turnout Monday for their first meeting of the year. They are off to an awesome start and they are very excited.

The EarlyActors and Interactors made large thank you banners and wrote letters for our first responders. They delivered them with “sweet treats” to the Fire Station and Police Station in their areas on 9/11

Don’t forget they are having their joint beach cleanup this Saturday from 8:30 until 11. They will be meeting at the Saint Augustine pier and would love to have some Rotarians come and join them.

Table of powerful women right there!

Rotary Youth Exchange student Gabe shares highlights from his year in Greenland in which he dispelled common myths and told tales, including how he (a former vegetarian) was introduced to the local culture when his first host family brought him on a caribou hunt and about a small, intricate, indigenous “tupilak” carved especially for him on his birthday, gifted to him by a fellow student. The connections he made with everyone were the most cherished memories.
