Wow, August just came and went by so fast.   You can tell fall is coming closer as all the students have arrived back in town and there is a new excitement about the school year as well as all the new sport seasons starting up.  In Rotary we also have some exciting things happening this coming month. 

On Monday September 11th we will have one of the “Buffalo Bikes” on hand so all of you can see what you so generously gave to and what District Governor Mike Ruby has selected as his special project.   We also plan to make at least one and maybe two special announcements that you will not want to miss.

The end of the month, on Monday September 25th we will welcome back District Governor Mike Ruby for his official visit to the Rotary Club of Ames.   We will get to hear directly from him about the excitement happening in Rotary and what he is wanting to accomplish this Rotary year.   

Lastly, I am excited for this year and that is because of all of you.  You make it very easy to come to Rotary every Monday.  I really look forward to seeing you, along with what great programs and music we will have.  Thank you all for what you do for our club and our community.
