October 26th Bulletin

 

Last Week: John Piasacki, Landscape Architect spoke passionately about the PCB contamination in the Housatonic river and the dangers to our community. He urged us as leaders of the community to get involved and make sure the cleanup is done properly.

 

We also took a moment to show appreciation for the dedication Sabrina Ruggiero gives to Rotary. Thanks to dedicated members like Sabrina, Polio will be eradicated from the world.  She was honored with a donation to Polio plus in her name. It was also nice to see so many members at the meeting to be a part of it.

 

This Week’s Program: Jan Johnson from Mill River Farm will speak about organic farming and she will give us an update of what is happening on her farm.
