Today’s Greeter - One of Santa’s Elves?

Today’s Program - Dedication of plaque to “The Walk of Fame”


Program - December 7th

Col. Jeanette McMahon, USMA, Prevention of Sexual Harassment and USMA (USCC) Programs. COL McMahon gave an interesting profile of problems encountered at the USMA. Her own biography, which was presented to yearlings, was an inspirational and forthcoming account of her life. Her husband, who was killed in Iraq last year, was, (and still is,) her biggest motivator.


The program last week was the annual Rotary Christmas Luncheon in the Thayer Hotel. Don Sagaria, Bob Wilson, Kate Squicciarini, Patty Steinmetz, Marge, and the rest of the Hotel’s staff provided a wonderful meal, with great beverages.  Dr. Philip Arbolino, School Superintendent for the Ft. Montgomery, Highland Falls School District appeared, accompanied by the High School Chorus, whose beautiful voices provided us with Christmas Carols. Club members donated gifts to the Orange County Safe Homes Organization, and other gifts were distributed via a raffle. All had a great time.
