We are looking forward to the meeting this week.  Same time and place, Thursday 11:30 am in the Beijing Room at Cornell Commons.
 
Speaker: Our meeting will include a presentation by local resident Kay Graber about immigrants and helping their path to citizenship.
 
Last week we had a fabulous former Youth Exchange Student, Robert Petrie present to our club.  He is a Cornell student.  Hearing about his experience was exciting and entertaining!  Speaking of Youth Exchange, our student will arrive on December 23rd!  If you are interested in greeting her at the airport, we will have a group of people their to welcome her.  Ask John Schultz for arrival details.
 
We are also working on finalizing the CPR training for January 27th.  Promotions coming soon!  
 
NO MEETING on THANKSGIVING!

Editor's note: A search for "cross country" led us to these short biographies of a couple of Rotarians, which appeared in the Hawkeye-Record Dec. 6, 1945.

George Lewis Albright and Rudy Vodicka gave their autobiographies to the Rotary club on Monday evening at the Baker House.
