                                  September Greetings to my fellow District 7300 Rotarians,
                                      Can you believe it? Summer is over! If you have been half as busy as I have, I guess we shouldn’t
                                  be surprised.
                                      The District 7300 Golf Outing chaired by Kevin Flannery, Quaker Valley Rotary Club, held on
                                  August 12, 2011 had the most perfect weather you could want for playing golf. Montour Heights
                                  Country Club was most gracious to us as their guests and a good time was had by all. The
                                  “Women In Rotary” Business Mixer arranged by Ruth Forsythe and Kay Phanse, Carnegie-
                                  Collier Rotary Club, held at The Club at Nevillewood on August 19, 2011 was also a huge
                                  success with 60+ women attending. My thanks to everyone who made these events happen and
                                  to those who participated.
                                      My official visits continued in August with 23 visits, and again, I am so impressed by the warm
                                  and friendly welcome I have received from the clubs. Sandy and Eddie Grimes, Green Tree
                                  Rotary Club, gave me quite a pleasant surprise by inviting my aunt and uncle, Jane and Phil

       2011-2012                      September is New Generations month in Rotary and I am pleased to say that Chairman, Dick
