Hi Fellow Rotarians,
Happy Thanksgiving!  There is no Breakfast Meeting this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday.  Safe travels to Rotarians who are traveling outside our Jaffrey-Rindge area and/or to Rotarians' families who are coming to visit your family in the Monadnock region. "From Atlantic to Pacific, the traffic is terrific...."  
Our November 29th evening meeting at the Shattuck will be a VERY IMPORTANT meeting.  ALL 44 Jaffrey-Rindge Rotarians are asked to attend -- this especially means those Rotarians whom we haven't seen for awhile due to work or family commitments.  It will be hosted at 5:30pm and will be over at 7:00pm.  This is a Club Assembly meeting; no guests -- we have some important business to discuss and it is important that ALL Rotarians be there to provide insight.  PLEASE mark your calendars, plan ahead, and join your fellow Rotarians. 
By the way, the hot horsey d'oeuvres served at the Shattuck in October were delicious -- a meal in itself.  You won't leave hungry on November 29th, either. 
Looking ahead as we march further into our holiday season, our December 6th meeting will host Rotary 7870 District Governor, Venu Rao -- more information to follow in the President's Message on December 4th.
In closing, it is my wish that ALL have a great Thanksgiving with friends, family, and loved ones.  I am thankful to be able to roll up my sleeves and work aside a great group of Rotarians, both in Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary and throughout the District.
See you on the 29th at Shattuck. 
Yours in Service,

Tonya Albee was honored by the New Hampshire Realtors Association with its 2018 "Good Neighbor" Award. Along with the recognition came with it a check for $5000 for the Camp BEST program, of which Tonya is the Program Chairperson.
Al and Nancy Clapp were recognized with the Paul Harris Service Award at the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club's Annual Raffle Party, which was hosted at the Shattuck in Jaffrey on Friday, November 2nd.   The long-time Jaffrey couple was recognized for their decades of service in several communities, and especially to the towns of Jaffrey and Rindge.  This picture was taken moments before the announcement was made -- little did they know what was about to befall them!   Clay Hollister emceed the presentation, which resulted in a standing round of applause (twice!) for the popular Clapp two-some.
A big THANK you to over 200 friends, neighbors, and citizens from both Jaffrey and Rindge who purchased tickets to the Raffle Party and participated in the celebratory event that honored Al and Nancy.
More Raffle Party pictures will appear in the Tuesday "President's Message" that will appear November 6th.
As he has done so nicely in previous years, Rotary Foundation Chair Clay Hollister introduced the 2018 recipient of the Paul Harris Service Award.  Clay wasted no time in sharing that for the very FIRST time in the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club's history that two recipients were about to be recognized -- Al and Nancy Clapp!  What was humorous was that both were under the impression that they were there to recognize another individual whom they thought was to be the evening's honoree.  Those crafty Rotarians pulled off another one! 
Congratulations to Clay and the Foundation Committee on an excellent selection and to Clay for a very professional presentation that highlighted the countless endeavors in which both Nancy and Al have been engaged over the years!
Mike Shea and Ben Wheeler, our two auctioneers, share a laugh with Misty Start, Raffle Party Chair, as they review the Live Auction items -- nearly 24 of them -- prior to the beginning of the "second half" of the evening's auction festivities.   Much of the success for a great evening can be directly attributed to these three!
