President Terry’s weekly message

• Week of March 21, 2011.

Dear SRC Rotarians:

The visit to Channel 13 and the opportunity to talk with the broadcast team weres interesting. The broadcast had a few interesting moments that the general public did not see and we were able to watch as they resolved some critical issues for the broadcast. Thanks to Murray Forth for setting up the visit.

The meeting this week will highlight some club accomplishments and serve as a recognition evening for club members. We also will induct our newest members — Ron Annis, Jason Brown, Robert Horan, Rob Mangold, Jim Mendrysa and Debbie Rodriguez. I have asked Jim Leyhane to serve as co-host of the meeting, and he will induct the new Rotarians.

We will use the evening as an opportunity to recognize club members for their service to Rotary and our club. We will have two Paul Harris recognitions, and Carole Spencer will attend to receive a Paul Harris pin in memory of Phil for his many years of service to Rotary.

The meeting is open to spouses and friends to attend. I am encouraging that you invite a guest to attend so we can share the success of Rotary with other community members. Please let me know if you are bringing a guest to dinner this week. I will wait until Tuesday to let Jim M. know our dinner count. Any suggestions for dinner this week? Let me know. I am working on the menu so any suggestions are helpful.

A reminder that our bowling event, “Bowling Over Polio” is scheduled for this Saturday, March 25, from 1 to 3 and 3 to 5 p.m. at the SpareTime Bowling Center in East Greenbush. The funds raised from the activity will be used as a donation to our Rotary PolioPLus fund. We are looking for your support and participation at the bowling center. If you cannot bowl, we need help at the table with raffles and prizes throughout the day. Please contact Murray to sign up for help.

Thanks to Pat Bailey for sponsoring the latest Member Home Dinner fundraiser. Her “Backwards Irish Dinner” on March 18 was full and the reviews are excellent. Thanks, Pat, for opening your house for the event.
