The Tri-Town RotaNews - July 7, 2004

Congratulations to Linda Parker, who successfully ran her first meeting as Club President! And, I won't even razz her for starting the meeting a few minutes late (well, maybe just a little razzing)! Following the meeting, President Linda was "heard" to say,

"This club leadership business ain't as easy as it looks!"

 

Visiting Rotarians and Guests:

Our only guest today was our speaker, Annie Harris, Executive Director of the Essex National Heritage Area Commission.

 

Fines and Happy Dollars:

Sergeant-at-Arms John Plate collected fines and happy dollars, but more importantly, advised us to wear our Rotary pins and to visit the website to answer Harry's question that we'll find there.

Raffle:

There were no winners in today's drawing because of a communication gap between our current and former presidents (no cards!). Jan Sinclair and Ira Singer had their numbers drawn and will pick a card next week.

 

Announcements:

  • From the office of the TBM President:

    If you were not at today's meeting, I read a letter from the President of the Griffin Museum inviting our District to a showing of the Sabastiao Salgado exhibition, "The End of Polio". The reception will be held at the Museum on July 14th from 6-8, this is a special showing for our District. The evening will include cocktails, hors d'oevres and an opportunity to enjoy some of the "most memorable photography you will ever see." Governor Donna D'Agostino has gone through great efforts to get this private reception for us; I hope we, as a Club, could thank her and show support.

    "Believing in the power of an image to inform, Sabastiao Salgado is known for his dedication to the plight of the world's disposed. In 2001 Salgado journeyed to the Democratic republic of Congo, India, Pakistan, Somalia and South Sudan to witness and document the largest public health initiative in history - the bid to eradicate polio globally by 2005. His dramatic and beautiful tribute to the struggle against this disease is captured in "The End of Polio".

    This could be a fun evening and count towards fellowship, which is one of the items on the list I distributed to everyone (who has attended a meeting within the past two weeks.) If you have not attended a meeting recently, please contact me so that I could let you know what I am working towards this year.

    The address for the Griffin Museum of Photography is 67 Shore Road Winchester, MA 01890.

    Would you please consider joining me. I am planning on attending and will be sending the RSVP to the Museum about noon on Friday. If you would like to attend this District function, please let me know ASAP.

    Thank you,
    Linda
