Membership Newsletter 
for April 7, 2022
Train your mind to see the good in everything.  Positivity is a choice.  The happiness of your life depends on the quality of your thoughts.  Anne Frank once said, I’ve found that there is always some beauty left – in nature, sunshine, freedom, in yourself; these can all help you.
Club Meeting:

Our next Club Meeting will begin on Thursday April 7th at 7:45am.  We will be meeting again in-person at Leominster Credit Union located at 18 Adams Street in Leominster as well as via Zoom at

Board of Director's Meeting

Will be held the 2nd Thursday of the month.
President's Message: Michael Caslin
My fellow Rotarians,
On this date in 1927, AT&T (Bell Telephone Company) held the first public demonstration of long-distance television transmission.  Reporters watched as a TV image of Secretary of Commerce Herbert Hoover was sent from Washington, D.C. to New York City by phone lines.  Although television technology was developed in the 1920s, it would be the late 1940s before it became commercially popular.  Good thing Rotary is so popular across the globe, which allows us to improve the quality of lives everywhere.


Last Week's Club Meeting
Alley had a great idea about co-sponsoring a Red Cross blood drive due to national blood shortages.  Ellen has found a location to host the event at at Andrew's Hall in Lunenburg.  Thank you Alley and Ellen!
Discuss adding a Webmaster/Social Media Chair to update our website to show all of the recent service projects and fundraising events that we have worked on and to become more inviting to potential new members.
This Week's Club Meeting
I will complete paperwork for a District Grant for the Fitchburg/Leominster Rail Trail project of adding multiple bicycle pump and repair stations.  We will be the Host Club and each of the 4 Clubs in the area will contribute $500 towards this project.
