OASD Trivia Contest -- Tom Willadsen advised members that the 4th annual Oshkosh Area School District's annual trivia contest will be held on Friday, Feb. 2. Tom noted that team member David Hayford is declining to participate this year as he continues to heal from open-heart surgery, so Tom asked for volunteers to fill his position.  Jeff Gilderson-Duwe volunteered to join the team. The Oshkosh Rotary Club team will be defending its champion title. (They've won the past 2 years!)

Souper Bowl -- Nikole Vergin noted that our Club's annual Souper Bowl drive will begin next Monday and run through February 4.  Our goal is to gather 250 cans of soup to deliver to local food pantries.
