This Friday June 14, 2019

Hi Everyone,

I hope your week is going well.

Last Friday, Jim Lloyd gave an excellent talk and slide show about his re-enactment of Cal Rodgers’ flight across the United States in 1911. Jim built his own plane to resemble the lightweight Wright brothers EX aircraft. It took Jim two months to complete the flight, which took place in 1986. There was a lot of national TV coverage all along his trip.  A fascinating story!

This Friday is our joint meeting with the Elmsford and Ossining clubs. We need a good turnout from all of you, so we can give our guests a warm welcome. Our guest speaker will be the very exciting and entertaining Amir Asadi. He will surprise us with the topic of his talk tomorrow, but I assure you, we will not be disappointed! He is by far one of the most positive guys I know, and is also a fellow Rotarian from the Bronx Rotary.

On Friday, June 21st we will have our annual installation meeting, at the Briars, with an upgraded lunch, appetizers, complete with wine and cold soft drinks. This will be a special time where we install Rachel as our new President for the next year. We will also honor two of our members with special awards for their years of good service. We do expect several guests to come and support our recipients and to welcome our incoming President. Please mark your calendars, and feel free to bring a guest. The cost for guests is $50 each.

Look forward seeing you tomorrow!

Mark J.
