ROTARY/PMO HABITAT HOUSE JON HUSTON reported at the Club Board of
Directors meeting last night that the HOUSE is virtually finished. Landscaping is he next large project toward completion. Be sure that your name is listed, on Bulletin
Board in order to receive makeup's for working. Make ups have been recorded as a part of September's attendance. Rotarians are needed for the next two weeks to
assist with various phases of construction, especially cleanup. Sign-up sheets will be available at Rotary each Tuesday for special daily wok, so please check your
schedule and volunteer to help with this "Service Above Self" project. It should be noted that JON HUSTON and Huston Electric, Inc. donated in kind service of labor
to do the electrical rough ins at the house and JIM ANDREW, and Henry Poor Lumber Co. donated in kind service of the labor to prefabricate the house panels.
These two in kind services should, in all probability, according to DAVE LANDGEBE, Treasurer, Lafayette Rotary Foundation, Inc. allow the Club to reach
its original goal of $44,000 ($40,000 for the HOUSE and a $4,000 tithe to build two houses in Haiti). Congratulations to all who made contributions and worked on construction of the house.
