Table Talk
The center table was all women until Frank Rigg joined the group.  Discussion during lunch centered around women’s issues and how women had been treated in the workplace over the years. Several members shared experiences such as being a female Rotarian not welcomed to a group she visited, going to a national advertising convention and having to play golf with the “wives group” rather than the businessmen, being fired from an office job because she was pregnant. 
Bristol Lodge dinner is scheduled for 1/11.  Volunteers are needed. 
Leigh Ann announced that she is working on a repeat of the Skiathon just as a social event and is working on a February date.
Leigh Ann and Chris are talking about the Octoberfest for this year and getting more sponsors.
Sharon is helping set up mixers at the Colonial Inn in February and March.
New Year Resolutions
Hillary Taylor will get her business on Etsy.
Leigh Ann Crimmings will cook more at home
Jean Goldsberry will go to 150 Jazzercise classes, walk 1,000,000 steps (not miles!), learn to be friends with her pressure cooker, and learn a new piece of technology.
Steve Kirk will lose 10 pounds and will get his wife to go to a goal setting seminar.
Steve discussed various ideas.  He would like to have members give talks to other groups such as the Concord Chamber of Commerce, the Concord Business Partnership, etc.  He is working on job descriptions for Rotary positions.  He is also thinking about starting a tech committee.  He likes the idea of the Nashoba club which has a group called, “Rotary Means Business” which is a business networking group. 
Door Prize:
Hillary Taylor won a $25 Visa gift card
 Are you an early bird? Can’t do lunch? The Rotary Club of Concord has added a second meeting to their weekly schedule.  Rotarians and their guests may now attend a breakfast meeting from 7:30 a.m. until 8:15 a.m. at the Colonial Inn, 48 Monument Square in Concord. Featuring a hearty breakfast and an informal format, the meeting fits the bill for those who want to be part of Rotary’s many activities, but cannot make a luncheon meeting. Full attendance credit will be given to Concord Rotarians and Rotarians visiting from other clubs.  Please drop in and experience an inspiring start to your day. Learn about upcoming Rotary projects and discuss timely topics.
