J & Dennis Filangeri with District Governor Nancy Van PeltRotary District 5495, our new Rotary District home, held its annual Foundation Dinner on November 4, 2017 in Tempe, AZ.

We lucked out with a lovely evening for an outdoor reception, and it was a great time to meet up with old friends and make new ones.  It's always particularly nice to meet the folks you've been exchanging emails with.

Our Rotary eClub was well represented.  Besides the two of us, Jim Bissonett not only attended but was an Event Sponsor.  Marco Cecala with his wife, Rebecca Wilks, were there and received a Level 2 Major Donor award.  Our club was also honored for being the club in the district whose members had contributed the most to Polio Plus last year.

Past Rotary International President Ray Klinginsmith gave the key note address.  He gave the best kind of presentation: entertaining, meaningful, and brief.

Definitely an event worth attending.
