An enthusiastic group braved the power outage, along with the inevitable “who goes first” at intersections, to share the hospitality (and generator) at Cameron’s. So how did this whole
Octoberfest thing get started anyway? Well, according to EJ our expert and guide for the day, it is a harvest festival and was started to celebrate the nuptials of King Ludwick and his princess bride. In Germany Oktoberfest is enjoyed by more than two million people and lasts two weeks. Munich has the largest festival, Stuttgart is second worldwide. In the US Cincinnati is the largest and Brazil has a fabulous festival. The music at these festivals ranges from traditional to AC/DC.

Liz started a conversation about community service. One of the interesting factoids was that Rotary contributes 850 million dollars a year worldwide to community service projects. The big news is that the District offers a grant of $300 for to clubs for a community service project.

Looking around the room, President Ed noted that many seats were not filled. Turning his attention to the current status and needs of the club, he spoke about membership and the need to boost it, as well as the financial challenges the club faces. Options may include some alternative means of boosting membership or increasing dues; there are now 30 members paying dues and we can't have the caterer work with less than that. Ed acknowledged the high quality of the food we have for lunch. He mentioned options; one is to do away with the Rule of 85.
