Heres an important plea from Phil Salvatori:
I have only one Giving Tree Ornament left and it is for two Sonics tickets for a "Dad." This request is for a Dad in a family supported through the Lake Heights YMCA, ala Scott Sadler's activity. If any Club Member has season tickets and would either: a) like to donate two tickets to ANY game played after Christmas, or b) sell them to Santa at a reasonable price, I sure would like them to get in touch with me ASAP. anta would be MOST pleased. I know that "Dad" will be elated on Christmas morning if we can make this wish come true, and YES, it WILL come true. Santa's job is to see to simple little things like that.
A large crowd is expected at the BBRCs annual Holiday Breakfast. Where else could you settle down to a wonderful buffet breakfast in the dark? And, be entertained by Santa interviewing your kids? And, your kids getting all dressed up early in the morning to join a whole bunch of other kids to enjoy this special seasonal event? The answers, of course, lie in whether youve signed up for the breakfast, telling the Fellowship Committee how many guests youre bringing. Do that right away so Sayoko gets to enjoy Christmas, too!

Your editor recently received this email from Donna Clarke regarding the dispensing of erroneous information in the Reveille. As far as mistakes go, this is one of our better ones!
I was catching up on our email and read the issue of the Rotary Revielle describing the 20th birthday party.
I know your work on the newsletter is almost perfect, but you did make a mistake. During the Oldywed Game, the question asked, in baseball terms, was:
"How far did Dick get on your FIRST DATE?"
"Not how far did he get on your HONEYMOON?"
The answer was, of course, he didn't even get out of the dugout. Quite a difference!
As per the Manual of Procedure, the Slate of Officers and Directors was made public Friday. President Lingenbrink announced the Nominating Committee offers the following slate for the 2006-2007 Rotary Year.

Again per Manual of Procedure, the election of this slate will be held the First Friday in December, or December 2nd. At that time, additional nominations can be made.
For everyone who has ever had or given an evaluation, just remember, it could have been worse. These are actual quotes taken from US federal government employee performance evaluations.
1. "Since my last report, this employee has reached rock-bottom and has started to dig."
2. "I would not allow this employee to breed."
3. "This employee is really not so much of a has-been, but more of a definite won't be."
4. "Works well when under constant supervision and cornered like a rat in a trap."
5. "When she opens her mouth, it seems that it is only to change feet."
6. "This young lady has delusions of adequacy."
7. "He sets low personal standards and then consistently fails to achieve them."
8. "This employee is depriving a village somewhere of an idiot."
9. "This employee should go far, and the sooner he starts, the better."
10. "Got a full 6-pack, but lacks the plastic thingy to hold it all together."
11. "A gross ignoramus -- 144 times worse than an ordinary ignoramus."
12. "He doesn't have ulcers, but he's a carrier."
13. "He's been working with glue too much."
14. "He would argue with a signpost."
15. "He brings a lot of joy whenever he leaves the room."
16. "When his IQ reaches 50, he should sell."
17. "If you see two people talking and one looks bored, he's the other one."
18. "A photographic memory but with the lens cover glued on."
19. "A prime candidate for natural de-selection."
20. "Donated his brain to science before he was done using it."
21. "Gates are down, the lights are flashing, but the train isn't coming."
22. "He's got two brains cells, one is lost and the other is out looking for it."
23. "If he were any more stupid, he'd have to be watered twice a week."
24. "If you give him a penny for his thoughts, you'd get change."
25. "If you stand close enough to him, you can hear the ocean."
26. "It's hard to believe he beat out 1,000,000 other sperm."
27. "One neuron short of a synapse."
28. "Some drink from the fountain of knowledge; he only gargled."
29. "Takes him 2 hours to watch 60-minutes."
30. "The wheel is turning, but the hamster is dead"
