Governor Ball

​Cutoff for 2019 Governors Ball RSVP

The cutoff date to RSVP for the 2019 Governors Ball is just 10 days away. If you don't RSVP before 03/08/19, there will not be a place set for you and/or your guests.

The number of meals ordered will be fixed on 03/08/19. We need to begin laying out the number of tables needed for dining, and to do that we need all RSVPs as soon as possible. If you know you are coming, please follow this link today to RSVP on-line.

It only takes a moment, and will assist your fellow Rotarians in planning a successful event.

My thanks,

Rick Otness

Immediate Past President

​Spruceapalooza at Monroe Park a Huge Success

Eight Spruceniks, (Warren Turner, Past Presidents Jennie Stipick, Tina Philpot, and Rick Otness, plus Erich Schuetz, Bob O’Brien, Jim Riticher, and your Humble Correspondent) convened at Monroe Park (also recently known as Bounds Gardens) last Saturday for a major planting project: 40 (yes, 40) Purple Pixie Dwarf Loropetalums around the perimeter of the park.

The day began at 7:30 a.m. for Warren and Fred. They deployed the 40 containers around the perimeter and marked their locations with spray paint. The rest of the crew reported at 9:00 a.m., and with little fanfare and zero idleness, dug the holes, placed the plants, added dirt mixed with peat moss, and scooped up little berms around the holes to properly direct the water downward to the roots. Besides Jennie’s hard work, her arrival with a box of Da Vinci donuts made her a favorite of the work crew.

Our timing on this project couldn’t have been better, beautiful weather on Saturday, and generous spring rains on Sunday.
