At the turn of the century, cities were becoming overcrowded and Halloween became a time to let off steam by playing practical jokes and tricks on people.
Legends say if you see a spider on Halloween, it is the spirit of a loved one watching over you.

Flexibility - an addition to the lexicon of Rotary. As part of Rotary's efforts in fostering change to adapt to the 21st century family, social and working environment of the current and future generations of Rotarians, Rotary Clubs now have two important opportunities - club flexibility around your club arrangements and the introduction of Satellite clubs.
Research and our members' experiences have shown that when clubs have more freedom to decide how and when they hold their meetings, who they'll invite to become members, and what member engagement means, their ability to attract new members and keep current members motivated increases. The Council on Legislation voted to give Rotary clubs more flexibility than they've ever had.
