We got a lunchtime VIP tour of the Slover Library to see our club's grant in action. In addition to visiting the lively children's area, exploring every floor and checking out the history collection we got to see our club's name on the donor wall. Joining our Rotarians were three NATO officers from France. David Sullivan, who heads the downtown Norfolk library, was our tour guide to one of the country's best libraries.

Rotarian Steve Jones welcomes back member Dan Schaffer (right) newly inducted May 17, 2016.  Dan is the manager of Fink's Jewelry at MacArthur Center.

Rotarians Jerry Friedman, Sally Hartman, Julie Keeslilng, Ed Ware and Kelly Stefanko may have made up the back row, but they were enthusiastic additions to the audience at The Muse Writers Center along with Ann Sullivan, who organized our tour of the writing center in Ghent. We were treated to hearing a group of children ages 9 through 11 read stories and poems they wrote during Muse classes. These creative and poised young authors were most impressive!

Despite dire predictions of rain and hail we ended up with a beautiful evening for our Friday the 13th Suds & Buds party at Norfolk Botanical Garden. We had about 450 guests, including Norfolk Mayor Paul Fraim and his wife Beth, enjoying fabulous food and beverages plus good conversation and music by Lewis McGehee. The roses were spectacular and many guests took advantage of our party location to see them up close. Click here to see photos from the party. Most were taken by Fresh Look Photography.
Thanks go to our event sponsors, vendors and party co-chairs Lisa Chandler and Lorna Cochrane as well as Steve Jones, our board director overseeing fundraising. Among many duties, Steve created the gorgeous flower arrangements including the one in the photo that was as stunning as the roses in bloom right beside the party. Thanks go to dedicated committee chairs and their teams of volunteers who planned and produced this party to benefit our club and its charities, the Norfolk Botanical Garden and Primeplus Norfolk Senior Center. Volunteers helping throughout the evening made everything go smoothly. We are getting rave reviews about this fundraising party. Stay tuned for official party pictures and details on how much money the second annual Suds & Buds party raised for three good causes -- Norfolk Botanical Garden, the Rotary Club of Norfolk and Primeplus Norfolk Senior Center. Our club's proceeds will benefit the many charities we help support.
Congratulations go to Nancy Hall of Wall, Einhorn & Chernitzer for winning the 50/50 raffle at the party.
