Fritiof - Fritiof shared that he attended a Leadership day for Student Council and also that he had been ill the prior week.  He was excited to share that the SHS Chess team won Nationals in the unrated division.   He is starting tennis.  He also has been practicing playing guitar accompanying fellow classmate,  vocalist Anna Mohr and they will be performing at Open Mic night at Beans and/or Air Play.  Thanks Fritiof.
 Program - Tom Jensen introduced Jake Lipka, Tennis Pro at Sterling Park district.  Jake provided us with a written history of the Westwood Racquet facilities since 1971.  Very interesting to see the progression and changes that have occurred.  Jake has introduced many new programs to Westwood, such as partnering with the Midwest Youth Tennis Association, learning and tournament opportunities for 10 & under youth, cardio tennis, adult drills, mixed doubles on Sundays from 1 - 3, youth single day tournaments.   Court #1 is now a smart court which allows for players to review their technique and data.  Free youth tennis is offered in the summer for ages 4 - 9.  They are also redoing the 9 outdoor courts.   Jake indicated that Pickleball is a fast growing game across the country and in our community as well.      Jake did a great job informing us of the many opportunities Westwood has to offer for tennis and pickleball.  Thanks Jake and Tom.

"Be the Inspiration"

Ongoing Reminders

1.  Please remember the Four-way Test when directing comments and questions to speakers and other members. a) Is it the truth? b) Is it fair to all concerned? c) Will it build good will and better friendships? d) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
2.  Once you have your guest speaker lined up for the meeting program, please email Carolyn Spencer at so that it can be included in the eBulletin.  
3.  Please park at the YWCA, not in a Sterling Federal Bank lot/spaces.
4.  Think of who you can invite to a meeting as a potential new member.
5.  If you have to leave early from the meeting, please apologize in advance to the speaker so that he/she does not think that you were walking out on him/her.
6.  Please sit closer to the front of the room than to the back.  And try to sit with the new members whenever you can....get to know them....make them feel welcome.
7.  Whenever you host a student guest, as you are chatting with him/her over lunch, please tell them about our club.  Tell them what to expect during the meeting;  the opening, fun & frolic, boots & shoes, etc.   Tell him/her about local and international service projects that Rotary is involved with.   Make them feel welcome.
