|STAN MITHOEFER reviewed the fund raising projects approved by the Board of Directors for this year. In light of grumbles received from members that they are asked for money too often, the Board changed the approach to raise funds by asking the community to help us with our projects. Nelson's BBQ Chicken is highly regarded (people drive out of their way to purchase it once they taste it). We will be selling the chicken before all of the home football games on the corner of State Road 25 and U.S. 52 (the old Sarge Biltz location) from four hours before kickoff to one hour before or until we are sold out.|
Our other activity involves partnering with Habitat for Humanity to put on the Gus Macker 3 on 3 Basketball tournament. This tournament is a well-established tradition in Lafayette with several built-in participants. Dan Guildenvecher, president of the Purdue Chapter of Habitat for Humanity told us that he is very excited about the project. They hope to build a house with the proceeds and Rotary is committed to building a playground for the CAPE Project at Washington School. This is a marvelous opportunity for students to get to know Rotarians, and vice versa.
