President Terry’s weekly message

• Week of June 5, 2011.

Dear SRC Rotarians:

We welcomed new member Darko Sedlar to our club and enjoyed the visit by fellow Rotarians Joyce Musco (Gift of Life Committee) and John Musco, newly-elected Assistant District Governor. They shared information on upcoming GOL events.

Mark Hoyt shared his experience as an exchange teacher to China last year. Mark’s experience in China and his teaching at Maple Hill High School bring a unique opportunity for students to learn Chinese. Thanks, Mark, for the program.

This week we will have Anne M. Cargile as our speaker on the Rotary Foundation. We will present Ann with a $1,500 check for our annual commitment to the Foundation, and a check for $1,000 to the PolioPlus fund.

Remember to support Rotarians in the U.S. See our club website on how to donate to relief support for our fellow Rotarians.

As a club, we have members who contribute directly to the Rotary Foundation. The club will receive credit for those contributions to the Foundation if we are made aware of them. If you are comfortable sharing information on your personal donations, please let Jim Leyhane and Murray Forth know of the contributions so the club can be recognized for meeting its annual contribution goal.

As we move toward completing this Rotary year, a few reminders about upcoming meetings:

• The annual transition meeting and recognition of members will be held Thursday, June 23, at Murray Forth’s home.

• We need volunteers to host summer dinners. Jim Leyhane will host on July 21, when the District Governor visits. The dates for other summer sessions are July 7, 14 and 28; August 4, 11, 18 and 25, and September 1. We wil return to the Holiday Inn Express beginning September 8. Please consider hosting a dinner or planning an activity for one of the summer meetings. Let me or Jim know of your interest. Thanks.

The following members have indicated they will attend the meeting this week. If you have a change in plans, please let me know ASAP: Ron Annis, Pat Bailey, Geoff Brewer, Terry Brewer, Deb Brown, Peter Brown, Dean Calamaras, Doris Calamaras, April Dowd, Bill Dowd, Russ Edberg, Phil Egan, Charlie Foote, Murray Forth, Bill Kneissl, Len Leonidas, Jim Leyhane, Steve Phelps, Deb Rodriguez and guest Anne Cargile.
