On August 28th, 2012 a Regular Meeting of the Rotary Club of FPB was held at Trinity Restaurant.  Vice President Shane Parouse conducted the meeting in the absence of Greg Kramer.  Our speaker was Ms. Linda Sweeney – Pediatric Development Manager at Winthrop University Hospital.  Linda, with the help of one of our newest members – Michael Breitman- provided us with a presentation and a music video performed by the children who participate in the services provided by the “Cancer Center for KIDS”.  For further information on the Cancer Center for KIDS, please check out their website at:  www.winthrop.org/cck

Also there is a luncheon meeting being sponsored by  the Floral Park Chamber which will take place Thursday, September 6th,  2012 from 12:00 noon to 2:00 pm at Stella Ristorante, 152 Jericho Turnpike, Floral park, N.Y. 516.775.2201   This will be a good chance to network with members of the Chamber.  Please check out our website for further details.

There also appeared to be some confusion for some other members as to where the meeting was.  For the foreseeable future, while we are looking for a permanent home for our meetings, all Rotary meetings will be held at Trinity Restaurant at 5:30pm on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of every month.  An email will be sent prior to every meeting confirming the time and place of each meeting.  You can also check our website for this information as well.

Our September meetings are scheduled for September 11th and 25th.  If there are any changes, members will be notified as soon as possible.
