First, a reminder that our club will not meet on Christmas Day nor on New Year's Day, so our next weekly lunch meeting is January 8, 2015.  The board meeting will be the day before, Wednesday January 7.

Please excuse our electronic dust during the weeks after Christmas and New Year's.  We will be constructing our new website, and there may be times the site looks "less than tidy" during the conversion process.   While this change should not affect email, attendance or other functionality for our members and directors, there's a small possibility of some disruptions in these areas, so if something doesn't work for you, try again in a few hours.  If there's an outage that interferes with your Rotary work (particularly the secretary), call Dave.

Once the new site is up and running, we'll be looking for committee chairs and volunteers to write fresh articles about their areas of interest.   This is being coordinated by Rich Ryzman.

Tree sales reaching the goal!  As of Wednesday morning we have about 250 trees and under 50 wreaths left on our lot!  Great quality and still good inventory, but please get there soon because we want to sell-out and enjoy the holidays.   We need some additional club member help for the weekend, please call or email James Petersen if you can pitch in.  We're heading to a great fundraising conclusion, with a lot of fun and fellowship mixed in.  Thank you for all your work to make it happen.

Facebook: are you on the Portsmouth Rotary Club Facebook page yet?  Check it out.   If you are, be sure to "like" the page, and "share" posts that interest you with your own Facebook friends.  We used this page over the weekend to reach over three thousand people in 24 can be a powerful tool, and you are the engine to make it work.

Friday December 12: the rink is open!  Portsmouth Rotary Club donated over 250 person-hours to the construction project, and the club has contributed a total of $30,000 toward the cost of this wonderful new resource.   Join us every Saturday afternoon for the Portsmouth Rotary Club FREE Public Skate, at 3:15 PM.  Congratulations to Strawbery Banke Museum on the launch of this community facility.

The Rotary Club of Portsmouth is excited to announce the arrival of its 2014 Holiday Ornament. 21st in its series featuring historic Portsmouth landmarks, this year’s 24 carat gold-plated ornament features a lovely rendition of the new Puddle Dock Pond at Strawbery Banke. Only 850 of these limited edition ornaments have been produced. Each is numbered and presented in a felt case embossed with the Rotary emblem and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.


 Many people banded together to build an ice skating venue that fit the museum’s historical surroundings and brought people of all ages together to enjoy this traditional New England sport. It’s truly a wonderful addition to the city of Portsmouth.


Since last year’s New Memorial Bridge ornament was a complete sell out, we were able to commission a second special edition and it will be available along with this year’s ornament. The ornaments are $17 and are available at Piscataqua Bank, Portsmouth Chamber of Commerce, Optima Bank at Harbor Place and Pease Tradeport and at the Rotary Christmas tree sales at Lafayette Plaza on Rt. 1.
