NEXT MEETING: December 21, 2018
A Club Discussion
Instead of a presentation by an invited guest, this Friday we will conduct our every-once-in-awhile Club Conversation. Our main topic will be planning for the 100 year Anniversary of Richmond Rotary.
A few weeks ago, Jan circulated a survey among our members to determine their preferences for the type of celebratory event, the time, the guests, and more. We’ll hear about the results and explore your ideas about what type of event would be most suitable.
Alan Blavins created the striking logo on the right in recognition of our anniversary. Thank you, Alan!
President Jerry Feagley opened the meeting. David Brown led us in the Pledge this week—his first time ever to do the honors! Josh Genser offered an invocation for peace, freedom and justice on earth. Sid’s thought for the day: “Try not to become a man of success but rather a man of value.” – Albert Einstein

What's in Store in the New Tax Law
Our resident CPA, Connie Tritt, presented a succinct, authoritative overview of changes in the new tax law. The biggest deal for many of us is that the amount of the standard deduction has nearly doubled, from $13,000 to $24,000. That may affect your decision to itemize or not. But wait, there’s more… Here’s Connie’s excellent summary in 9 slides (Power Point presentation).
