Youth Update

Laura spoke up first and she shared with us about a trip to a haunted house. She said that Lorenz was scared, screaming and crying the entire time. Laura and her host sister, Julieta, decided to go on an adventure to try-out for a musical at the Prisco Center. They didn’t have a ride so they biked and scootered their way to the try-out. After that effort they better make it. Laur also had the opportunity to go flying in a little Cesna to see the sights of Aurora through the air.

Lorenz celebrated his 17th birthday with his host family and he had a great time.

Together they had the opportunity to go to Midevil Times, Six Flags and they enjoyed Breast Cancer Awareness Day at the West Aurora football game.



Stickers were caught up on the tracking board for inviting guests and they were plentiful. It is great to see all of the new faces at our meetings.

Mark Stiehm has also turned in his application for membership. Sponsored by Peter Dominguez, who made it a condition of marrying Peter’s daughter.


Wine & Chocolate

Sponsorship letters have been emailed out to everyone and we need everyone to bring in at least 1 sponsorship. We also passed around the basket ideas and everyone is expected to take at least 1 basket idea for the auction.

The event will be up on the website soon as well as any documents that are needed.


Aurora Inter Faith Food Pantry

Gala event will be held Saturday Nov. 8th at Piper’s Banquets in Aurora. The club is a Mayflower Sponsor and we have tickets available.


Next Meeting

We will not have a morning meeting on November 5th, we will instead meet at 12:00pm with the Noon Club for a Rotary International Day at Two Brothers Roundhouse in downtown Aurora.


Charlie had the winning ticket and received the $10 automatic winner for the last meeting of the month. He didn’t let Joel touch anything but he still pulled the 3 clubs instead of the Joker.
