This Friday

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving and have fully recovered from over-eating and too much rest!

Our last Friday meeting, two weeks ago, was planned as a joint meeting, but due to inclement weather we cancelled and will reschedule. There were a few of us there, which was a good for a more intimate discussion.

This Friday, Mike Sommer, co-founder of The Cookstove Project, will share about his recent trip to Uganda and the progress and results from working there for over 5 years. Also, Rebecca, Mike’s wife and co-founder, went to Nepal recently to spend time with our staff there, so hopefully Mike will have time to share about her experience as well.

I look forward to seeing all of you tomorrow. Please invite a friend to come.

See you on Nov. 30th.

Joint meeting

Hi Everyone,

Happy first snow day! Luckily this will be a quick shot with little accumulation! New Yorkers chuckle at these amounts!

Last week Rachel’s good friend, Terry Casey, who is the CEO of Volunteers of America came and shared about the services they offer. The good folk working with this organization deal with some of the most difficult situations arising in people’s lives. You could tell that Terry is passionate about this work, and her leadership is what moves others to engage as well. Thank God for people like her.

Tomorrow will be our first joint meeting in a while, with Elmsford and Ossining Rotary Clubs. Our speaker will be the famous and entertaining Amir Asadi. He will be speaking on making connections through Rotary. Despite the wet roads, please make special effort to come and welcome our guests and let them feel the warm embrace of our club.

See you tomorrow!

Mark J.
