Rotary Last Week – October 14

We went from the “Battle of Albany”, with N.Y. State Assemblywoman Nancy Calhoun describing, among other items: a State budget, which has doubled in the past 14 years, to Iraq, where four speakers, introduced by Brian Crawford and recently returned from that troubled country, spoke on conditions concerning health, security, and Law. The speakers were: Dr, Mohamed Ahmer, Cardiologist, Scott Irwin, Minister of Interior, and Bob Goodwin, Advisor to Ministry of Health. Tony Brown escorted them. (Two Very interesting programs).
