Rotary Last Week, November 3rd

District 7210 Governor Doris Obremski made her official visitation to the club. Asst. Gov. Sean Ryan accompanied her. Gov. Obremski had the distinction of inducting our newest Club Member Sirimas Ciarcia. Much was said regarding new memberships, the Rotary Foundation ($100.00 yearly from each member requested) Katrina disaster relief, the club’s goals, local

Rotary projects, and training. She also requested the names of members who will attend the Rotary Leadership Institute at Mt. St. Mary’s College in Poughkeepsie on Nov. 19th.
Phil Brillante’s Safety News: – (Again,via mental telepathy), Phil advised on the following: ‘The leaves are falling, so take good care; black ice lurks and could catch you unaware!

(In other words, be careful!)

The last reminder:  We’ll host the Exchange Students from England at the AAA Lot on Saturday, November 12th.

Diana Cole: Once again, Diana is doing a great job coordinating the District Katrina fund. Gov. Doris Obremski complemented the excellent job she is doing!
