Good morning.
Yesterday was an entertaining day as Rotary International held The Rotary Foundation Centennial Celebration in Cleveland, Ohio hosted by Rotary District 6630.  The performance by the Cleveland Orchestra was magnificent and the music was incredible. The concert included works by Beethoven, Claude Debussy and John Williams. Also, there were three special video segments highlighting the history of Rotary.  At the end of the performance, the orchestra played “Let there be Peace on Earth” and the entire audience joined in song.  It was a memorable moment. 
A Centennial Celebration Dinner was held at the InterContinental Cleveland to honor donations to The Rotary Foundation in honor of The Foundation's 100th Anniversary. The evening’s events also included a very special induction of four members into the Arch Klumph Society with some traveling from as far away as the Philippines to be honored in Mr. Klumph’s hometown.
This week we will hear from Dr. Judy Welsh, Cleveland Clinic and Chief Scott Gilman, City of Lakewood Fire Department, regarding Lakewood Emergency Services and Response.  Plan to bring a friend, a neighbor or an associate to this week’s meeting.
