Last Weeks Program

Jason Lynch gave a very informative program on the U.S. EPA methyl tertiary-butil ether (MtBE) in drinking water. It included a description of MtBE, its hazards, and protection against it. Some of us old timers remember a song by singer Vaughn Monroe in the late ‘40s called “Cool Water”. It describes a cowboy seeking water for both himself & his horse Dan, while searching the barren, desert waste. I doubt if the cowboy ever heard of MtBE in those days. His greatest concern was probably finding a riverbed, which had dried up.  Well, we’ve come a long way since those days in identifying the hazards in drinking water, and Jason’s presentation was a real eye opener. Great Program.

Anne Lennox will be leaving Post on Monday, as Gen. Lennox heads into retirement. We wish them both our best, and with a sense of sadness will be losing Anne, a great Rotarian!

Phil Brillante’s weekly safety tip was received by the medium of ESP.  His message was to be aware of the dangers of fireworks, as July 4th approaches!
