Salaam fellow Rotarians! I am delighted to report the details of our 22 October gathering.

President Jennifer Hara called us to order at 12:30 PM, leading American citizens in the Pledge of Allegiance. She turned to Nancy Riker for words of inspiration. Reading a passage from the Prayer of St. Francis, Nancy requested that when we hear the word “Lord,” we think of whatever higher power or inner truth each of us embraces:

Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace; 
Where there is hatred, let me sow love; 
Where there is injury, pardon; 
Where there is doubt, faith; 
Where there is despair, hope; 
Where there is darkness, light; 
And where there is sadness, joy. 

O Lord, grant that I may not so much seek
To be consoled as to console; 
To be understood, as to understand; 
To be loved, as to love; 
For it is in giving that we receive…

Greetings fellow Rotarians! I am happy to detail what transpired during our 15 October meeting.

President Jennifer Hara called members to order at 12:30 PM, leading U.S. citizens in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. She turned to Shelly Williams who inspired us with his first-hand observations as an educator of the millennial generation. Insisting that millennials are not the self-centered generation portrayed by their detractors, he recounted examples of youths helping their communities worldwide. In Shelly’s view, millennials are leaders in service, the “doers” described in the Bible, epitomizing “the Rotary way.”

Rotary International published an announcement that several Rotarians have recently reported receiving fraudulent emails, including one with the subject line "Proposed Rotary Visit." It fraudulently claims to be from a Rotary club president in Nigeria asking for information to help coordinate exchanges or to partner on projects.

Also be aware of Facebook pages or other websites using the Rotary logo without permission in order to solicit money and imply a relationship with Rotary.
