Club Members and Friends of the Monadnock Rotary Club,

The Club had a very full and enjoyable meeting last week.  In addition to our speaker, Keryn Bernard-Kreigl of the NH Children's Trust (which, by the way, does a lot of great work and is fully deserving of support and encouragement), our Evans-Reilly award winner, Alisha Birk, joined us for breakfast and was presented with her certificate and scholarship award.  Sue Copley spoke for a few minutes telling us all of the reasons Alisha was chosen for the award - suffice it to say that she is one busy young lady.  The picture below includes Alisha and Janet Reilly, wife of Dave Reilly after whom the award is co-named.


Our next regular meeting is Tuesday, August 19, 2014, at the Community Church.  Breakfast will be served at 7:30 am and Club business will begin at 7:40  am or thereabouts.  The speaker will be Anton Elbers, talking about the local food movement.  Mr. Elbers is a long-time resident of Alstead, NH, and is on the Board of the Monadnock Food Co-op and the Board of Trustees of the Orchard School.

Invocation:  Rob Harris

After the regular meeting there will be a meeting of the Monadnock Wellness Festival Committee in the Community Church.

Hope you're all enjoying your summer.  See you on Tuesday!

Fellow Rotarians and Friends of the Monadnock Rotary Club,

On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, we welcomed Seth Brenzel for a very informative presentation on the Walden School.  He also contributed to a more harmonious rendering of "America the Beautiful" than usual.  The Walden School does superb work in fostering musical creativity in young adults and is a great addition to Dublin during the spring and summer months.

On Monday, 11 August, I encourage you to join with me and the Peterborough Rotary Club for a meeting at Brantwood Camp.  The featured speaker will be our own Amy Willey and I will be presenting our annual contribution to the Camp at the meeting.  The meal will be served at noon, but getting there a little early will allow some time to mingle with Rotarians from the Peterborough Club.  Please try and attend if at all possible.  Next year we will begin the planning a bit earlier and make it a joint meeting with Peterborough Rotary.

A reminder that the Rotary Night at the Fisher Cats is August 23rd.  Tickets are $12 of which $4 is returned to Rotary for polio eradication.  If you are interested but have not yet made reservations, please visit the District 7870 web site where you can do so.

Our next regular meeting is on August 12, 2014 at 7:30 am in the Dublin Community Church.  Our speaker will be Keryn Bernard-Kreigl, Executive Director of the NH Children's Trust.  The NH Children's Trust is leading the drive in NH to eliminate child abuse and neglect.  Their website is at  http://www.nhchildrenstrust.org/ if you would like to visit it before the meeting.

Invocation:  Dave DeWitt

I look forward to seeing many of you on Monday at Brantwood Camp, and even more of you on Tuesday at the Community Church.  Enjoy your day!

Fellow Rotarians and Friends of the Monadnock Rotary Club,

On July 29, 2014, Dublin's Police Chief, Steve Sullivan, addressed the Club at our regular breakfast meeting.  He told us a little about himself, talked about the Dublin Police Department, and gave us his views on policing and on the law enforcement challenges facing even a small town like Dublin.  It was great to have him visit the Club and we welcome him and his family to our community.

On Tuesday, August 5, 2014, we will have a regular meeting in the Dublin Community Church beginning at 7:30 am.  Our speaker will be Seth Brenzel of The Walden School.  From the school's website: "The Walden School, founded in 1972, is an acclaimed summer music school and festival offering programs that emphasize creative application, specifically through the study of musicianship, improvisation, and composition. In residence on the beautiful campus of the Dublin School in Dublin, New Hampshire, the school provides an inspiring retreat-like environment ideal for creative music making."  It should be an informative program so don't miss it.

Invocation:  Jim Guy

Our Club is a contributor to the Milford Rotary Club's Clean Water Global Grant.  Recently, the Milford Club sent out a press release, which is reproduced in part below, and a photo, which is attached.  This is just one of the many worthwhile endeavors that the Monadnock Rotary Club supports.

"July 28, 2014 - The Milford, New Hampshire and the Danli, Honduras Rotary Clubs are pleased to announce that The Rotary Foundation has approved a Global Grant which, when completed, will improve the health of 425 families – including many children -  by providing them with clean water, sanitation, and hygiene education. This project will serve nine dispersed, remote communities in the rural municipality of Trojes, Honduras, located along the Nicaraguan border, about three hours northeast of Danli. The total cost of the project is $188,000, of which $138,300 was funded by Rotary Clubs, Rotary Districts and The Rotary Foundation. The remaining funds will be provided by a Native Energy carbon credit program.

The goal of the project is to virtually eliminate water borne diarrheal disease in the communities by providing practical, simple sustainable tools, including appropriate point-of-use filtration technology, toilets; hygiene and sanitation training to individuals, teachers and communities; and on-going monitoring and follow-up.

In addition to the Milford Rotary Club, five other New Hampshire Rotary Clubs supported this project - Nashua, Nashua West, Souhegan Valley, Monadnock and Jaffrey-Rindge as well as the District Foundation Committee.  Fourteen other Rotary Clubs from Maine, New York, New Jersey, Montana, Oregon and Washington also partnered on this project."


Hope to see you all on Tuesday.
