Yoyo was proudly wearing a new t-shirt Lorraine gave him for doing good at school
Ivan is enjoying baseball practice and he is doing very well with medical terminology class. He enjoyed a bike trip with Peter to St Charles on Sunday.
We did have another family step up to host and they are currently going through the background checks and training.
Not only did we gain 1 new member, we also had 2 new applications turned in. I believe we also have 2 more on the way which is fantastic.
The event on Wednesday night with Aurora Business United was fun and we had the opportunity to discuss Rotary with many people. Thanks Judd for putting that together and for Linda and Centennial Mortgage for the food.
