Harrell Miller thanked the Rotarians who expressed concern about him and Jan because of the Napa Valley earthquake.  Harrell brought a bottle of fine dessert wine from Napa to be auctioned off.  Nancy Burgess bought it for $45. The money goes to the club.  Thank you Harrell and Nancy for your generosity.
5. Sharon Stinard (she of purple fingernail fame) brought us up to speed on the Dictionary Project. She passed around a sign up sheet for the Labeling Party that will be at Bob Crow's home on Friday, October 17 at 10 AM.  Crow lives at 7104 E. Mariola Ct. in Mountainbrook Village. The distribution of the dictionaries to 3rd graders will be on November 6.  She will have a sign up sheet for that in the future.
The cost of a table at the Disco Fever event is $225, not $420 as reported erroneously in last weeks bulletin.
