From President Mike Dobbins 
WOW!  Our guest speaker, Tim O'Brien, did not disappoint!  For those of you who missed this program, you missed a wonderful presentation of all the airplane photos Tim has taken just this last year!  It even included pictures of the Reno Airshow where these planes look like Tim could reach out and touch them!  He also shared photos he took of the solar eclipse!  It was quite a ride and we never left Players.      
Don’t forget, the Area Four Grand Poobah (Gov. Doug) will be visiting us November 21 to bring us up to speed with the activities on-going in our district. Welcome home, Your Majesty!
Speaking of things—Rotary.
We still have no incoming President-Elect on board. Time to step-up as training begins in a few months.
REMEMBER - PLEASE DONATE YOUR HOLIDAY “WOW” POINTS TO THE ROTARY CLUB OF PENN VALLEY!! Just ask the HOLIDAY cashier to donate your WOW points (in increments of 1000 points) to the Penn Valley Rotary.  (You might need to help them find us or ask for the manager to help the clerk find us in the system).  The Rotary Club receives a $20 gift card for each 1,000 points donated.  Your donation will be used to purchase HOLIDAY FOOD BASKETS FOR NEEDY PENN VALLEY FAMILIES!  THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATION!!!
