The theme for our meeting on Thurs., Oct. 19 is flexibility. Why? Because we were scheduled to have District Governor Kyle Haugen attend our meeting. His plan was to meet with the board prior to the regular meeting and then speak to the club about his vision for the district and our club. And then it became apparent that many of us would be absent.
 
Enter Plan B, and thus, today's theme. Kyle will join us on Nov. 16 now, and at this Thursday's meeting, we will perhaps hear a classification talk or two and enjoy each other's fellowship. So please join us and enjoy your fellow Rotarians.
Bricks to Bread International is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that helps build brick ovens for Costa Rican families seeking a sustainable source of income. Brick ovens not only help provide a family with an income, but they also bring communities together. The ovens often become a focal point in the town, become a gathering place for community events, and encourage camaraderie by welcoming all to participate in the build.
 
On Thurs., Oct. 26, join Farmington Rotary at Celt's Pub in Farmington at noon as we hear Jeff Larson speak to us about how Bricks to Bread changes lives with a brick and a loaf. Guests are always welcome.
