Enthusiastic Rotarians like Rachel Bellis were joined with teen-age members of the Norfolk Collegiate Interact Club and their advisor for Saturday morning volunteering at the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. We sorted a mountain of donated food and also packed boxes for distribution to hungry residents. 

It was a great day for hot dogs and camaraderie at the annual Bob's Hot Dog Day on December 2. Each December Rotarian Bob Latimer (left) treats Rotarians and other friends to lunch at Doug's Hot Dogs to enjoy hot dogs on the one day of the year he eats them. Shown with Bob are Rotarians Lorna Cochrane and Gene Justice. 
A capacity crowd of Rotarians enjoyed tea and a tour of the Hunter House Victorian Museum in the Freemason neighborhood. The 1894 house was decked out for Christmas, and with the belongings of James and
Lizzie Hunter and their three children everywhere, it appeared that the Hunters had just stepped out for a stroll. The Hunter House has been operating as a museum since 1988. Among the Rotarians on hand were Joe New, Fred Walker and Diane Wallach.
Norfolk Rotary Endowment Chair, Mark Shaw, (l) and The Rotary Foundation Chair, John Lynn (r)  received District awards for last year's club achievements in donations to TRF. Help the club achieve Every Member, every Year (EREY), donations to the Foundation.  The District Grants and the Club Charities grants have helped many deserving organizations.  Well done Rotarians.  Carry on in 2016-17.
John Garrett (l), Mel Price (c) and Chuck McPhillips (r) were presenters for the Norfolk Innovation Corridor and Elizabeth River Trail.  Newly reopened Elizabeth River Trail will sport water stations for people and pets, places to get in the shade, launch a paddle board or kayak, directions.  There are loops around the EVMS campus and ODU Campus.  NSU and Naval Station will be added later.  Get your bikes and running shoes ready for a river based trail.
