Weekly update

Well, another week and possibly another snowstorm, will Spring ever truly arrive? 

We discussed building another scholarship at the request of John Carrolls wife, to benefit the kids of Andover, MA.  We have had a number of requests from former Rotarians and friends on how to contribute.  Bob MacDonald and Al Jean are working out the legal details on how to get this rolling.

Steve Kirk from the Concord, MA club joined us again this morning.  He gave us an update on his Haiti Relief Speaker panel last night.  The event was well attended, over 80 people showed and were not disappointed.  The overlying message is that things are still incredibly bad there and huge amounts of relief are still needed. 

Debbie is working on a date for the next Antique Appraisal night fundraiser with Skinner Auctioneers.  We decided that we still want to hold the event at the First Parish Church United in Westford.  The location works well for the event so mark you calendars for late October.

More disussion followed on a Spring fundraiser and a fellowship night at the Lowell Spinners for a night of baseball, sometime in August.  More on this in  future post.

Carl is still doing the snowbird thing in North Carolina after his recent excursion to Cozumel  where he finished his PADI dive certifications.  Hopefully he'll give us a presentation when he returns in May.  Click on Cozumel above to see video from one of his dives.

JAD Duggin, our club advisor gave us some poignant advice today.  "Read the funnies first"  good advice JAD!

Wee need new members!!  Join us for breakfast to learn what Rotary is all about.
