Our next meeting is September 19th and is a lunch meeting at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek.  Our speaker will be Lauren Barranti (Mrs. Ricardo Ortiz) who will speak on home medical equipment.  Golf Tournament chairman Mike Horwitz will be presiding and he will be soliciting volunteers for a variety of tasks at the October 1st golf tournament.  So if you are not playing, please come prepared to sign-up to volunteer. 
Marilyn Orr will also be collecting final sign-ups for the club barbecue.  The barbecue is on October 1st at Peninsula Country Club - it follows the golf tournament with cocktails beginning at 5:00pm and dinner at 6:00pm.  Since this is a mandatory event (you are going to pay for it whether you attend or not), why not attend?
Our September 26th social meeting will be held at CuriOdyssey (1651 Coyote Point Drive, San Mateo) from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.  It is a joint meeting with San Mateo Rotary.
