Rotary Last Week – June 9th

Dave Monroe introduced Debbie DeAgostine, President of the Newburgh Kiwanis Club, which operates from the Apple Green Golf Course. She described her club’s fundraisers,

the main one being ‘Rose Day’. How do they raise funds? By selling roses! Last year they sold 1077. She equated this to our fruit selling fundraiser. Their club donated $8k last year toward scholarships. They also have a spin off ‘Tee club’ from Kiwanis. They also ordered 950 dictionaries for 3rd graders from Barnes &Noble. Great! (She suggested a joint venture with our club.)

Pres. Roy also notes the following dates:

June 11, 10 am – Dedication – Memorial Park, Ft. Montgomery (behind police sta.)

June 14 – (Tuesday) Int’l Rotarians from India. (Dist 7490, Harold Spaeth.)

August 28th 6 pm – Gus Fishburne “launches” us on the annual boat ride at West Point. (Get your sea legs together!)

Phil Brillante – Phil annunciated the dangers of lead in the home by rhyming: Lead, lead is everywhere! Lead, lead we should care! He passed out a ‘must read’ brochure on lead!

Jerry Sheehan’s Pushcart – Jerry says:                     

“The sun beats down, I seek the shade,

If you’d like a shoit we can make a trade!”
