At our weekly meeting we had a good turnout including two guest visitors. Steve Kirk from the Concord club stopped by for breakfast and to let us know about the presentation he organized for March 29 at 7pm. The topic is Haiti, the aftermath of the 2010 earthquake and relief effort of his club and other agencies. The event will be held in Carlisle, MA at the Union Hall - First Religious Society 27 School Street. The speaker forum is free and donations are gladly accepted.
Chris Borden visited our meeting as well and is adjusting back to civilian life after his Army tour in Afghanistan. We're still asking him to join our club but he just hasn't made the jump yet. He'd make an incredible Rotarian with all his work in civics. C'mon Chris... just do it !!
The club also discussed ways to help the earthquake victims in Japan. Looks like we'll be purchasing shelter boxes for the displaced. Each of these boxes will help support 10 people for 6 months. Contact us if you'd like to make a donation!
