Program for April 9
Carla Grygiel of the Newark Senior Center was our guest speaker today. She presented sobering statistics regarding the prevalence and devastation of Alzheimer's disease, both for the sufferer and their caregivers. She updated us on the "Meeting of the Minds", an early memory loss program at the Center, a great new program that helps people in the early stages of memory loss and provides support and resources for families.

Welcome baskets for camp counselors

Instead of doing physical labor at Camp Fairlee, we will be assembling welcome baskets for the camp counselors. A signup sheet for the specific items needed has been circulated and will go around again if you have not had a chance to sign up. Please bring your 40 specific items to the April 30 meeting and we will sort them into baskets.

Board actions

Actions taken at last week’s Board meeting:

  • $100 approved for Lancaster Sunrise Rotary Club to sponsor their Bike ride for Literacy (Mel Carlton’s club)
  • $100 sponsor for Christiana Club’s golf outing.

Did you chair a project?

If you chaired a project or club event, please complete a detail form for Project Manager Mike Laur. Mike is hoping to complete every project so we will have accurate details for future chairs of the projects to follow.

Wanna be a Paul Harris Fellow?

If you want to show your Rotary support and become a Paul Harris Fellow or move to the next level, see Foundation chair Fred Dawson. He can tell you how close you are to a PHF and what it would take to reach that milestone.

Thought for the Week:

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong.

Can’t make our meeting?

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands. You need to be able to throw something back.

All Rotarians are welcomed to attend another club’s meeting. Be prepared to pay for your meal and bring the makeup slip back to our secretary for attendance and invoice credit.
