We are celebrating our anniversary by holding a rare evening dinner meeting in the Silver Room of the Quail Creek Club House. We will start with a social hour beginning at 5 pm with music being performed by the Nogales Mariachi Apache Band with dinner service beginning around  6 pm with a Mexican Fiesta. Our special guests are Dr. Peter & Phyllis Eichman with the program beginning around 6:45 with Peter reviewing the history of Valle Verde Rotary from his unique and I expect witty prospective.
Just to reiterate, there will be no morning meeting at the church this week.
Lots going on over the next few days:
  1. Rotarian and USMC veteran Patrick Shely will be presenting our wreath at the Veterans Day memorial at the Green Valley Cemetry on the morning of Nov. 10th which is also the 242nd Anniversary of the Marine Corps which actually predates the founding of the Navy by a few day.
  2. The I 19 Corridor Mixer will be held the same day at the Silos at the Tubac Resort at 5pm. Come down and met fellow Rotarians from d4 different CLUBS.
  3. Saturday, Nov. 11 is the Pecan Festival in Sahuarita. Other than a parking fee, everything is free I believe. As I have worked at the parking concession for so many years, I am not sure the previous statement is correct. If you volunteered to assist with parking, Rotarian Bill Grantham is back and he will be getting in touch with you and your time slots. 
Finally, we will return to our regular meeting place on Nov. 16th with or Speaker being Rotarian Phil Slivers reporting on the recent activities in Uganda.
