AURORA ROTARY CLUB
Tanya Shively from the Aurora Study Club was the speaker at the Rotary Club of Aurora’s July 27 meeting.
She talked about how Aurora once was a “cheese capital of America” and that it is amazing how our culture has changed over the years.
Evan Webster gave the invocation, and Past District Gov. Jack Shafer welcomed new member Katie Moody from the Avenue in Aurora.
Special guests were Assistant Gov. Stew Buchanan and his wife Cheryl, Jim Snell of Aurora Manor, Jean Lund, Karen Landolph and Vernon and Gail Higaki.
It was noted that 15 of the 30 spots available for the Aug. 31 Amish dinner meeting are reserved. Members were urged to review the birthday and anniversary list, and email any corrections to Kathi Grandillo.
An evening business meeting will take place Sept. 14 at 6. Oct. 23 will be the 100th anniversary of the Rotary Foundation orchestra concert and dinner.
