Salaam fellow Rotarians! I am happy to be back from Detroit to report on our 1 April 2015 meeting. First, though, I wish to thank Red Badge member Johnny Allem for writing the Meeting in Review and Mike Carmichael for acting as Secretary in my absence last week.
President Jennifer called us to order at 12:30 PM, leading members in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance. She asked Christian Lungarotti to offer words of inspiration. He invoked the wisdom of 12th-century Catholic friar Saint Francis of Assisi who abandoned his worldly possessions to live a modest life. Saint Francis advised that we first “do what is necessary,” then “do what is possible” and eventually we will notice that we are “doing the impossible.” As Christian remarked, Saint Francis’ words resonate with Rotarians seeking to improve the world in small and large ways.

You may have heard that our DC Foundation owns a double cemetery plot in Parklawn Cemetery. This was left to the Foundation by a former member who moved out of town and no longer had a need for the plot. The Foundation Board has decided that it is appropriate to sell the plots so that the proceeds can be used for charitable purposes.
