Rotary Last Week – April 21st

The Lounge of the Thayer Hotel was transformed into a modern day “Tower of Babel” as Rotarian LTC “Woody” Held and Cadet language students Dan Fisher (Arabic), Shane Hogan (Chinese), David Martin (French), Alex Bertone (German), Tom Payne (Portuguese), Sean Hollars (Russian), and Marissa Chierichella (Spanish), took us on a learning trip to understand the basics of their individual studies. Broken into

seven groups, with the verbiage being uttered by each at once, one can understand the confusion at the biblical “Tower”. This was truly a great learning experience!  Ma Sallama, zaijian, Au revoir, Auf Wiedersehen, Ate logo, adios. (Sorry, but I can’t duplicate the Russian characters for “goodbye”.) Many thanks to “Woody” & Co.

Harold Spaeth thanked all for their help in the Dinner/Theatre program. (He himself deserves our thanks for the great job he did!)
