Weekly News
Two Additional Newsletter Items:
From our Community Services Chair, Joanie Bumpus:
Yesterday I was at the park and visiting the current staff member.. I brought up the question of getting the women’s restroom painted.
She checked in with Nancy Peirce from the Park District, and she thought it was a great idea.  They can supply the paint and we need about 4 Rotary volunteers.
We just need to set a date… early morning is best.  If you have any thoughts, send a note to me at for more info in your email.....
The Passing of Rotarian Frank Luporini
Sad news — I was walking at Western Gateway this a.m. and talked to Betty - Frank’s daughter — she said he passed just this morning of natural causes — no heart attack, no Covid...has been in hospice for the last two weeks.  I asked Betty how she was doing health-wise and she said “well”....sorry to pass this along — I offered to share with Rotary and she appreciated that.  She said memorial of some sort will likely be in a few months — in the Bay Area.  She will let me know.

Newer members may not know of Frank but he was a quiet “character” and quite the bocce player well into his 90’s. 

Be well.
