Newsletter: July 9. 2013


As you are aware, we began a fund drive for the Sisters from Harvest House to assist them in repairs to a chair lift for one of their adult homes. We committed ourselves to raising the $2500 needed to repair a chair lift at one of their adult living facilities.

Through a raffle, collections, and a very generous donation from one of our members we met that obligation and added much needed funds to the treasury.  We were receiving tickets up to the meeting date, so final total on monies received is still being calculated. I will have the figure for you  in the next news letter.

The winners of the raffle are the Groom Family (I Pad) and the Mooney Family (Nook). Photos will be published as soon as I can get them on the web site.

The plan for the Rotary-Belmont Family Fun day is progressing well. The plans will be finalized in the next two to three weeks. Thus far there will be free parking and free admission to the park. We will have the use of the Marquee Tent during the event. Further details will be forthcoming.

On a final note, Bill Harris has resigned as a member. We wish him well.

We are now at 18 active members. Our hope is to increase membership to 40 by the end of the Rotarian year. We can all help in this respect by asking neighbors, the merchants we deal with every day, etc. to attend one of the meetings for an informal introduction to the club and experience the good work we do for the community.

Should you have any questions, feel free to contact me. (516-817-9259)
