Top of the week: for this week's meeting, we invited Governor Maggie Hassan and challenger Walt Havenstein to a forum at Rotary.   As of this writing, Mr. Havenstein has accepted and the Governor's schedule will not permit her to attend.

Puddledock Rink update:

Rotarians led by Rotary's hands-on committee chair Ted Alex have been hard at work assembling the chiller enclosure that will soon move to Strawbery Banke and be part of the Puddledock Skating rink.

An amazing Saturday this past weekend (October 25) as Rotarians from throughout district 7780, including many members of our club, turned out to bridge the polio gap.   We marked World Polio Day by spanning the Memorial Bridge from Portsmouth to Kittery to raise money and awareness for Rotary's PolioPlus campaign.  Three countries remain with endemic polio: Nigeria, Pakistan and Afghanistan.   When we eliminate polio there, we have done it, and we are this close!

Rotary Log for Meeting of October 23 by Ben Babcock


President Tricia Cummings presided over the meeting on a rainy and blustery day.  John Rice led the club in singing “Oh Canada.” It was a touching nod to our neighbors from the north in the wake of the terror attack in Ottawa earlier this week.  Past President Dave Underhill led the group in the 4 Way Test and Reverend Allen provided the invocation.


The meeting began with a humorous anecdote from President Tricia on the importance of name badges.  There were two visiting Rotarians in attendance; Col. Leslie Smith of Concord and Paul West of Knoxville, TN.  There were many guests as well, and not an empty seat in the house.  Several birthdays were announced and prospective member David Andreesen was put on seven day notice.


Past President Diane Foley introduced the club’s newest member, Miranda Butson.  Miranda has recently returned to the seacoast area after a career in the United States Air Force and Department of Defense in Washington, DC.  She currently works for Cornerstone Title in Portsmouth, NH and also has a small private law practice.  She looks forward to contributing to the club.


General announcements followed.  There was a reminder about the walk across Memorial Bridge on Saturday the 25th.  A call was put out for additional Turkey Cookers, Pie Bakers, and volunteers for Thanksgiving.   Volunteers were also requested for the Salvation Army Soup Kitchen on Wednesday October 29th and for the Christmas Tree sales in November and December.
