Nadia Allen, Executive Director for Mental Health Association in Orange County gave a very informative talk about her organization and the numerous services they provide to the residents of our county. Nadia was very well received and Rotarians showed their appreciation with their Happy Dollars. President Amanda presented her with a check for $500 which totally surprised Nadia. She was extremely grateful and promised that the money would be put to good use addressing the mental health needs of our community.

Thank you Tom Grazier for ensuring that this was a successful Horse Show. Great job! Also, thank you to Colleen Segarra who took care of everything to do with the horses and the 4-H participation. You are a true partner to Rotary!

Congratulations to all the Rotarians in our District 7210!
We have contributed a total of $185,904.91 in the last year to our Foundation that includes $30,702.77 for Polio Plus (which Gates Foundation will match 2:1) Even though we did not make $100 per member on our annual giving I am proud of our district. We gave per capita $90.02. (We have 1,693 members.) The sad part is we still have 10 clubs who did not give any money to the Foundation! Hopefully we can do a lot better and now we need to train more people and have a Foundation chair in each club!
A reminder, on November 9, 2014 we will have our annual Foundation Brunch at West Point and I hope we will have an unprecedented number of Rotarians showing up! I am trying to get an exciting speaker-a peace scholar and hopefully a Foundation trustee also.
Thanks again for making this last year a fantastic year for our Foundation!
Yours in Rotary,
At our recent Installation Dinner District Governor Drew Kessler installed Amanda Gerkens as President of Middletown Rotary for the new year 2014-2015. Congratulations, Amanda.
RI President Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15. Huang is urging club members to Light Up Rotary by hosting a Rotary Day in their community, continuing our fight against polio, and increasing club membership. "Light Up Rotary is more than our theme. It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, and every country we serve."

The Historic Walking Tour is nearing completion. The phone voicemail boxes are being built now and the recorded messages will be loaded in the voicemail system next. Most of the signs have sponsors and will be placed at each location. Some of the key community people who have helped with this project will attend our June 10th meeting for recognition by the club.
Middletown Rotary is participating in the 125th birthday celebration of the City of Middletown by developing a walking tour of notable buildings and businesses that are part of the history of our city. In partnership with Frontier Communications, tourists and local residents will be able to walk this route and listen to audio recordings of a short synopsis of the buildings and landmarks before them.
