 Brags:  not enough time this week per Pres. Kevin.
Good Works:  Steve Christy spoke about his involvement in New Hampshire Humanities non-profit organization over the last several years and how impressed he was by the “Humanities To Go” program.
Rotary Minute: Jamie W. cited an article in the Rotary magazine that the Rotary Foundation had won an award for how well the charity was managed.
Speaker: JoAnne Lemieux gave a presentation on her recent trip to Myanmar in South East Asia. Edward Jones Financial Advisors sponsors the annual trip to give aid to impoverished children and orphans. JoAnne met with the Rotary Club in Myanmar (there is only one Rotary Club in Myanmar) and she is working on a Rotary grant.  JoAnne mentioned that Myanmar is not a typical tourist destination and that she had 4 stops on the way and it took 2-days to reach her destination.  JoAnne wore a traditional dress of Myanmar during her presentation.  As JoAnne projected pictures she mentioned that the trip made her more aware of the life style and the impoverishment in 3rd world countries. Many children have HIV and there is not treatment available for them. A little money goes a long was in providing health services and daily necessities.
President Kevin concluded the meeting with the ‘4-way test’.

“Rotary’s influence on the heart of the world will be in direct proportion to the number of communities that are exposed to the Rotary ideal. So let us help to found new clubs wherever the soil is at all fertile.”
