Introduction of Marcia Passos Duffy
In my former life as an independent consultant and SCORE counselor I advised big, international and small companies. It became very clear to me that business people could be divided into two very distinct groups—those who get it and those who don’t. Marsha clearly gets it.
Marcia Passos Duffy was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and this has special significance to this club as we sponsored a high school student from Brazil this past school year. As a youngster moved to metropolitan New York City, then to Keene in 1995.
She lives with her husband and children (15 and 21) in Keene, N.H.
Today Marcia will talk with us about her newest venture, Monadnock Small Business Journal—The region’s voice of small business and entrepreneurship.

Sr. Cecile Provost (principal)
Brief Description of Student’s Accomplishments _________________
We don’t know if you have ever had a set of twins being recognized at this wonderful Rotary Student of the Month Event but it is our deepest pleasure and pride to introduce you to : Molly and Wyatt Robbins who are eighth graders at St. Patrick School in Jaffrey.
We asked their teachers to pick the student they thought was most deserving of this honor and one teacher said Wyatt and another teacher said Molly! What do we do with that? Then we asked the teachers to tell us why their choice was Molly and Wyatt. They both said they would write down their reasons and bring them to the office. Guess what...both teachers said the same things about Wyatt and Molly. There is no doubt that they are really twins!
Here are the faculties’ remarks: Molly and Wyatt are the epitome of what students should be. They are always respectful and willing to help out adults as well as fellow students. They always put forth their best effort. They listen carefully in class and are constantly putting in the effort needed to raise their grades. Their work is always completed on time and is well done. Both of them are conscientious students who are on task and turn in excellent work. Wyatt has a delightful sense of humor and Molly’s work is always well done and beautiful in every detail.
Teachers are unanimous in saying that both Molly and Wyatt are excellent role models and a delight to have in class.

The flock is on the move!
Who is NEXT ??
YOU’VE BEEN FLOCKED!
Conant High School’s Interact Club, a high school extension of the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary Club, is sponsoring a flamingo flocking fundraiser. A flock of 8-12 flamingos is currently traveling from lawn to lawn within Jaffrey and Rindge. So far, the flamingos have visited the Tower and Crocker business offices, the Tieger Realty office and a local residency. When flocked, you have the option of sending the flock to another address for $20, including a personal message for $25 or renting the flock for $50 a week if you really enjoy your new lawn ornaments. Be on the lookout for these pink, plastic, trendy friends over the next few months! If you have questions or requests for the flock, please contact David Dustin at (603) 532-8131.
Janet Wilson Spoke on BNI and Networking
Janet is the Managing Director of BNI for the New Hampshire Region. She supports
32 BNI chapters with 800 members.
Janet highlighted the mistakes many of us make while networking.
Most people only network with people that they know. This is a mistake because you probably have all of
the information that they have to offer. Cast a wider net.
Do not break the 12 12 12 rule: be aware of how you look when you are 12 feet and 12 inches away from
a person and choose you first first 12 words carefully. People form their impression of you in the first 7
seconds that they are with you.
Before you start asking for referrals find out something about the person and what you can do for them.
Not the other way around.
At an event do not mix only with your group. Meet people that you do not know.
