After the opening ceremony everyone was invited to partake of the superb buffet dinner that was awaiting them in the anteroom.

The United States Senior Open is returning to historic Salem Country Club for the first time since the famous 2001 championship. The 2001 event made history for selling out their ticket allotment one year in advance as well as having a star filled field including Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.
Founded in 1905, Rotary International is a global community of over 1.2 million like-minded individuals who have a passion for service. However, the Rotary International Constitution required membership to be limited to men until 1989, two years following a landmark Supreme Court case which mandated gender equality in Rotary in the United States. Today, there are over 200,000 women in Rotary, comprising nearly 20% of Rotary’s membership.
Women in Rotary will feature Carol Agate, the lawyer who represented female Rotarians in the Supreme Court case. She will be joined by a panel of strong female leaders in Rotary - including Julia Phelps (2014-2016 Rotary International Director), Elise Cadigan (one of six Rotarians on The Rotary Foundation Programs Committee), and Sheryl Meehan (2016-2017 District Governor for D7930).

So in late July, it was to everyone's thrill that George was the featured speaker, re-introducing Rotarians to his personal history and thoughts on serving others. Born in 1924, George skipped the 3rd grade and graduated high school at age 16, at the start of WWII. In 1941-42, making $60 a month, George began his professional training as an apprentice draftsman and volunteered for the Coast Guard, serving his country as a Carpenter's Mate 1st Class. Retiring after a 40-year career as an architect at then age 86, George enjoys his grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. A proud Wakefield resident, he takes pride in the fact that he "can still cut my own grass." Reflecting on is time in Rotary, George commented, "Each week I look forward to seeing you all. It's really a joy to serve others through Rotary. It's my joy."
