Notable Date To Remember – April 17th

The “Ides of March” has come and gone,

   But the Rotary club must carry on -

So pack your bags and strike your tents,

    And be alert for coming events!

The 17th of April stands out tall:

   Hear “The Sound Of Music” at Ike Hall!

Have dinner at five - see the show at eight,

   Hurry up – don’t be late!

For seventy-five bucks you can’t go wrong,

And ‘fore it’s over - you’ll break into song!


Rotary Last Week       

Captain Mark Linisky of the 101 Airborne, 188 Aviation Regiment (Black Hawk Regiment)

presented a vivid picture of the first days of the war in Iraq, which included photographs (slides)

of the troops deployed there. Some of the photos were of actual combat situations. Capt. Linisky is a West Point graduate.

His presentation was most interesting and impressive.                                                     


Any Spare change? Phil Brillante is raising funds. He’s passing a large jar and hopes to fill it. Help Phil win the “Penny War” with interact.


Board Meetings -  Next Wednesday (March 17th) at Highland Falls Library.
