SPEAKER:  Rotarian Shahid Latif                    

President Bob welcomed all and called the meeting to order. 
He spoke about the upcoming Area 3 Holiday Party which will be held at Emilio’s on December 8, 2017. Save the Date - final details are pending.
December 15 will be the Annual Meeting where the Nominating Committee will be in place to accept volunteers for next year’s posts.  He encouraged all to step forward and put their name(s) in nomination to  serve on the Board or as Directors.
He introduced Margaret Ricketts who is the President of the Rye Chamber of Commerce.  She explained that business professionals now comprise more positions in the Chamber, as there are more businesses coming into Rye. There are, however, less retail businesses represented.  Their mission is to keep a beautiful and pleasant business atmosphere in Rye for merchants. The Chamber sponsors special events as “Best in Rye” , the well-known “Sidewalk Sale”  that is very popular, and Mistletoe Magic - coming up on Sunday, November 27, 2017, which is a family day with attractions for the kids and includes the  a “Chili Contest”  - a fundraiser for the Chamber of Commerce and raises approximately $3500 towards scholarships  She closed by mentioning that Rye City is forming a Master Plan Committee.
The meeting Raffle was won by our guest, Margaret Ricketts!  Congratulations!

Melanie R. Ciraco
