Rotary This Week March 26th - Dinner and a fun evening out will be at the Corner Pocket in New Town this week where we will be holding our 3rd annual club Pool Game competition.   Come a little early and enjoy dinner before the tournament begins.  Money collected from our players will be added to our WRF funding in support our charitable giving for 2009.  Our host as usual for this evening of fun will be Bob Tubbs.  Good luck to all!
