From PP/PE Elizabeth Schuck
As agreed at our last club meeting, we will be participating in the annual Night of Lights Parade this Friday, December 2nd!
  • The parade kicks off at 6pm, and participants need to be lined up and ready to go by 5:45pm. Staging actually starts around 5pm.
  • We will gather with our club banner and signs that tell all about what we do as a club, at the corner of Filbert and Purissima (on Purissima headed towards Filbert).
  • Order of participation in the parade is determined by arrival time, so I will try to be there before 5:30pm. 
  • There is a liability waiver that I need to sign/submit, along with the names of all participants from our group.
  • Here comes the important question: Will you be joining us?
At our club meeting discussion on this topic, we had 6-8 people indicate they will participate. We need more than 8 to successfully carry our large 50th anniversary banner (thanks Mary) and all of the signs that share how we support the community. Bring your family members, kids, grandkids. 
This is our chance to be present in a very important community activity and to get some PR on what we do!
I do need to know if you will be joining us as I have to submit all of our names along with the waiver form. I will gather signatures as we gather for the parade. 
PLEASE let me know if you will be joining us.  Contact Liz via her email or text her
Dress warmly AND festively!! Add lights to your outfit so we can be seen better!
Here are some important parade requirements:
Arrive at staging area no later than 5:45pm
No throwing candy
and NO Santa outfits...only one Santa and it's NOT US!

Pumpkin Festival 2022 - Rotary Club of HMB Chowder Booth
Happy Post Pumpkin Festival! 
Now that the dust has begun to settle, I wanted to congratulate everyone and say thank you to all for supporting our Chowder booth!  By supporting, I mean, working your @#$%& off to help raise funds for our club! As per Steve and Mary, our gross income at this point is: $23,622!
That's absolutely INCREDIBLE!
Of course, we still need to deduct our expenses, which will come in around $4000, but even after that, WE MADE A TON OF MONEY!
We couldn't have done this without EACH and EVERY one of you who worked tirelessly to order, organize, plan, take delivery, cut, prep, cook and serve the milieu of people who bought our clam chowder.
As always, we've come away with several suggestions for next time, including more double boilers and more tabasco/tapatio sauce. If you have a suggestion, please feel free to send to me. That way I can compile to keep for future reference.
In the meantime, please enjoy this glorious morning and bask in our success, which is completely due to THE BEST ROTARY CLUB IN THE WORLD!
PP/PE Liz Schuck
PS per President Krystlyn, we'll have a mini celebration at Thursday's meeting!
