  1. October is Vocational Service Month:
-Concept of Vocational Service
i.High ethical standards in business and professions;
ii.Recognize the worthiness of all occupations;
iii.Dignify each Rotarian’s occupation as an opportunity to serve society.
-Question:  As Rotarians, how do we put these ideals into action?
-Answer:  One way is “Classification Talks” – taking a few minutes to learn about fellow member’s occupation (it can plant seeds for professional networking)
-Duty Roster will circulate for sign-up, and we will launch Tuesday, October 8.
-Our “outline” for Classification Talks will be:  Share your title, the name of the business or oraganization, the mission of your job, and who you serve in 2-minutes.
