Club Happenings
1.  Club Meetings
This past Thursday, our Rotarian of the Day was our esteemed Club Secretary, Meredith Eisenberg (what an interesting life she has had!), and our very special guest presenter was Nkumbulu (Kay) Kanyanta. Kay grew up in a royal household in northern Zambia. His father is Chief of the Bemba People, a tribe of 6 million tribal members. As son of the Chief, Nkumbulu's life was different in some ways from his friends. Nkumbulu has had the privilege of a college education in the US. Currently, he is an engineering student at UNM. Kay shared his experience of growing up in Zambia and his acculturation to an American lifestyle.  Thanks so much to Christine Glidden for introducing us to Kay!
2. Upcoming Club Activities!

Dinner and White Christmas on December 2nd!

Our very own Kit and Toni Turpen will be in the cast of White Christmas, which will be playing at the Rodey Theater at the University of New Mexico. Showtime is 7:30.  

Ed will be contacting M'Tucci's which has opened a new location at 3222 Central Ave. SE to see what the available seating will be for December 2nd between 5:00 and 5:30.  

The play and the dinner are separate so if you would like to go to the play but not dinner or vice versa, that will work.

Please let Ed know no later than Wednesday, November 23rd, next Wednesday, how many tickets you would like and how many would like to go to dinner. You can call, text or email him.

Christmas Party/Freeloaders on December 10th!

Jennifer and Bryan Huffaker have graciously offered to host our Rotary del Sol Freeloaders/Christmas party Saturday night December 10th at 6:00 PM.  Details will be forth coming but we wanted to get this announcement out as a "Save the Date".  As always there will be great food, fellowship and perhaps some white elephants. Hopefully we can get some of our Rotary Wranglers to lead us in song!  If you can join us, please consider inviting a potential member!

3. Upcoming Birthdays and other dates to celebrate, support each other, etc.

November/December Birthdays!

Davis Riordan - November 23rd

Phil DeBerardinis - November 28th

Mitch Selking - December 29th

Bruce Shaffer - December 31st

Roberrt Brown will be reaching out to you if your birthday is not listed on our website.  If you have any important reasons to celebrate other than birthdays (anniversaries, birth of a child or grandchild, etc.) or reasons for your fellow Club members to support you, pray for you, help you (e.g., loss of a loved one), please let President Jeff know and he will make sure that the Club is notified and that we can respond accordingly.  We are all in this together!

4. Governors Charity Ball Update!

Starting in early December, we will be sending out regular Governors Charity Ball updates, news, requests, etc. through a separate bulletin.  It will also be going to the members of the Rotary Club of Albuquerque (RCA) so we can all stay on the same page.  

In the meantime, President Jeff and Club Fund Development Chair Willie will be reaching out to you individually to discuss possible roles for the various Committees.  President Mark and President-Elect Suzy at RCA are doing the same thing with their members, and we are seeing strong commitment to work collaboratively with us this year!


Rotary Happenings

November is Rotary Foundation Month.  Our Club has been and continues to be one of the most supportive Clubs of the Rotary Foundation in our District, not just in our financial support but also in our use of the Foundation to support our District and Global Grants.  

District Happenings


1.  District Governor John Drusedum's blood drive challenge is still in effect through January 31st.  The goal is a total of 1000 units collected ("1000 Pints of Life").  Last year, the District gave out four Paul Harris Awards, and will do it again this year for the clubs with most pints donated.  More information on the Blood Drive Challenge can be found here:  documents/en-us/d1f076f4-1ea7-421c-abaa-df7d0e043a7d/1).
