UPCOMING PROGRAM (August 21, 2001)
In order to preserve the tradition of having Purdue coaches available as guest speakers for Greater
Lafayette Area service club luncheons and dinners, and also in an attempt to help the coaches with their hectic schedules; Jay Cooperider, Athletic Relations Director, this year requested the area
service clubs to consolidate their plans for Tuesday, August 21, 2001, and Thursday, October 18, 2001. Therefore, next week, Tuesday, August 21st , our Club will host the first of these
two all-service club luncheons. Speakers will be Joe Tiller, fifth-year Head Coach, Purdue Football Team, and Jeff Hulsmeyer, third-year Head Coach, Purdue
Women's Volleyball Team. Coaches Tiller and Hulsmeyer will be introduced by Rotarian MORGAN BURKE, Director, Intercollegiate Athletics, or Jay Cooperider.

TWO CORRECTIONS TO LAST WEEKS "Ripples":
- The KEN EWING Small Group Dinner date in last week's "Ripples" was confusing, the Dinner is Thursday, September 6th. MARTHA CHISCON and JANE TURNER, Co-Chairs, have reservations for 13; still space for five
- DALE MC HENRY has resigned as Club Treasurer, effective June 30, 2002, not June 30, 2001; therefore, still plenty of time for someone to volunteer to become Club Treasurer and have time to train with DALE.
PICTORIAL DIRECTORY: CHRIS FUNK has printed the new Directory and it is at a business in Templeton being collated and spiral bound. The Directory should be
available for distribution at the Tuesday, August 28th Club meeting.

information in the new Directory, but until that time, the following should be used: Junior Achievement of Greater Lafayette, Jenks Building, Columbian Park, P.O. Box
