Our speaker at the Aug 8 Rotary Luncheon at Purkey's Pink Apple was club member Norm Kelly, who spoke about his recent trip to Holland, Belgium, Luxemburg and Germany prior to attending the 2019 Rotary International Convention in Hamburg, Germany.
Norm  reported on his and Marcia's trip with loads of wonderful photos, anecdotes and interesting facts on what they saw (well-known, as well as, very interesting lesser-known sites) and will postpone the highlights of the RI International Convention until he talks again on Aug 29. 
While traveling they saw signs for the Inner Wheel – a lady’s organization for Rotary, since woman were not allowed in Rotary until 1987. This organization was founded in 1924 in England and still has over 100,000 members.
One of their most somber visits was to the American Cemetery outside Luxemburg. There are 5,073 soldiers and Gen Patton buried there, mainly were Battle of the Bulge casualties.
