Rotary Club of Great Barrington

Bulletin for July 5th, 2017

Posted by Michael Wise
 
Current Membership: 55 members
 
Fine weather for the Fourth! I hope everyone got outside to enjoy it.
 
It’s time to get ourselves organized for the new Rotary year. Our club has an amazing number of committees – and a (much smaller) number of people who seem to be on all of them. Give some thought to where you could pitch in. Committees that could use more help include communications (website, bulletin, social media), weekly program, community projects, and youth exchange. We’ll review and renew the roster at a meeting in the near future.
 
Breaking Bread: We had a light meal and light turnout for Breaking Bread on June 29th. Many thanks to the terrific Rotary members and their families who pitched in to help. It is always a treat to spend time with each other while doing some good to boot! Thank you, thank you to Steve Agar, Suzanne Arre, John Benedict and Angela, Linda Day, Janet Dohoney, Bobbie Hallig, Oskar Hallig and Mike, Julie Hannum and Steve, Barbara Manring, Joel Moskowitz, Nancy O’Connor and Alexa, Vito Vitrano and Hank Ferlauto, Mary White and Michael Wise. Also to Jessica Speer-Holmes for organizing the Signj-Up Genius!
 
Membership News: Laury Epstein, Vito Vitrano, Dave Isby, Scott Rote and Gary Kobran are celebrating birthdays this month. Tom Andrews is celebrating 49 years as a member! Cheryl Raifstanger, 19 years and Wayne Harris, four years. Thank you for your great contributions!
