Many, many thanks go to John and Marla Ordway for hosting the Rotary Picnic on Saturday.  Though the turnout was lower than usual, those in attendance were treated with a delicious buffet and perfect weather.
 
Many of you were also able to participate in the “Walk for Your Neighbors” fundraiser for the Community Support Center on Sunday.  Our club committed up to $250 in sponsorship for NBMV walkers.
