As I sit here around my now empty-nester home in October I find that I'm not alone.  If you know Tracie you know she loves to decorate for the seasons.  Everywhere I look there are carved pumpkins, scarecrows, and assorted other beings.  Nope, definitely not alone!
 
I hope you didn't miss our speaker, Ben Carter, last week from Canton City Schools.  He gave a great presentation on our youth and what CCS is doing to engage them in not only academics, but also hands-on trade skills.  Bravo!  I think we can be of great service to the student in this capacity.
 
Thanks to everyone who provided their time and energy to move the Canton Rotary out of our previously held 3rd floor offices.  Because of all their wonderful work we were packed up by 9:30 am, organized in our new storage location by noon, and home in time to watch the Bearcats handle the Irish.
 
President Elect Lynn Hamilton will be filling in for me this week.  I'll be vacationing in the Finger Lakes Region of New York, but I'll be back next week to stir it up a bit.
 
Have a great week.
 
President Mark
