Welcome to Burlingame Rotary Year 2018-19:
Our first meeting of the new Rotary year is Wednesday, July 11th at 12:15pm at Poplar Creek.  We have a fun speaker lined up in Austin Carr, a stand-up comedian and son & grandson of members of our club.  Please join us for an enjoyable meeting.
At the meeting, I will also spend a few minutes reviewing the my plans for 2018-19 and our focus on the Three C's:
  • Camaraderie and Membership
  • Community Service
  • Charitable Giving (focusing on Scholarships, Local Community, Student Exchanges and International)
On July 11th, I will be reporting on our charitable giving activities and our successes in the past year with charitable giving and fundraising.  At future meetings we will talk about Camaraderie & Membership and Community Service. 
Let’s Review What Happened Last Week:
