" Three things cannot be long hidden:  the sun, the moon, and the truth."


Today was a Woodhaven Adult Home Donation Day.  To those of you who delivered a helpful item or two to the home's residents, we thank you.  
Since the village restaurants that helped sponsor our 2018 Winter Golf Classic were unable to join us today, instead we enjoyed a sort of Club Assembly/fellowship luncheon.  Michael was Club Sergeant.
We welcomed the brief visit of three RYLA guests, PJHS students Claudia Koutsantanou, Michela Rabeno, and Mattea Rabeno.  Dennis introduced these youngsters to our members and to President Paul, who validated their request to serve as facilitators at the next RYLA weekend.  They promised to make a return visit to one of our future luncheons in order to tell us about their recent experiences at RYLA summer camp. 
We also welcomed back Chris Buzzanca, who last week made a presentation about the impressive BSA program in Suffolk.  Chris will become our newest club member when he is inducted on September 10th.
Bob H. shared information about new member Rebecca Kassay, who just began her journey with her production company to learn about volunteerism and spotlight unsung heroes along the East Coast.  On the 16th of August, Rebecca joined members of the Rotary Club of Washington, D.C., at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD, as they ran their "historic" (since 1946) Family Bingo Night at the USO Warrior and Family Center.  She invites you to keep up with her at IG:bethechangewrebecca  on Facebook.

Goal:To encourage a lifetime of reading for newborns and their families that have utilized the St.Charles Hospital Maternity Facility, by presenting each mother with a newborn reading packet.
