The Washington Noon Rotary Club welcomed guest speaker Bo Brooks (L) to the club’s October 31 weekly noon luncheon meeting at the King Chicken Banquet Hall.

Brooks, owner of Pirate Waters Outfitter, captivated the club’s attention by unleashing a barrage of homespun humor as he shared several stories concerning how his business was established.

According to Brooks, his store which is located near the corner of Market and East Main St. in downtown Washington, is the only independent fly fishing shop east of I-95. Brooks, who was hosted by Noon Rotarian John Tate (r), humbly thanked his family, numerous downtown retailers, vendors and customers who’ve helped the store succeed since its inception eight months ago.

In other club news, President David Loope (M) encouraged club members to attend this Monday’s meeting which features guest speaker, Dr. James F. (Jeff) Barwick, a local orthopedic surgeon.

As the Christmas holiday approaches, the club now prepares to assist the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign and the Toys for Tots drive.
