Stories

A great time was had by all at First Thursdays @ 5:30 - Rotary Means Business at the Artisan on Thursday evening.  It was another wonderful evening of fellowship and sharing Rotary. 
 
Dino Cantelmi will be presenting his classification talk this Thursday.  Please be sure to attend to learn more about our newest member. 
 
It is with great sadness that I share the tragic news that Rotarian Audrey Rafferty was the victim of a deadly car crash on Friday in Easton.  Audrey passed away at Easton Hospital from blunt force trauma. 
 
Audrey totally embraced Rotary and although new to the club, was already attending Board meetings in preparation to serve on the Board.  She was always there with a smile and ready to volunteer.  Although our time to get to know Audrey was tragically too short, we were blessed to have known her as a fellow Rotarian and a friend.

REPLACES MORNING MEETING
 
Francisco, our exchange student from Chile,  had a unique experience for his Memorial Day Celebration. He accompanied host “DAD” USMC Tom Bailey to Washington, DC to participate in the NAM KNIGHTS 2017 Rolling Thunder celebration to honor our fallen brothers and sisters in the military and police organizations.
 
“All in all he had a great time and experienced some things he will never forget, like seeing men big as trees and very rough looking just break down and cry openly at the Viet Nam Wall and the Police Memorial…” TB
The Founder of NAM KNIGHTS
 
Unique transportation
Vets, police, active and retired....rolling thunder!!!

On April 20, 2017, Morning Star Rotary held a special celebration! We honored Rotarians Charlotte and Tore Hartmann-Hansen with the inauguration of the Charlotte & Tore Hartmann-Hansen Community Grant.
 
Of course the Program commenced with what else – our Charlotte leading us in the singing of “Follow Your Rotary Dream.”
 
Our emcee, AG Janet Kolepp, presented a PowerPoint Presentation very aptly entitled A Rotary “Love Story.” It focused on their journey through Rotary from Morning Star Charter Members, to Club Presidencies, District Governor up to today as ‘seasoned Rotarians’ continuing to impart their wisdom and passion for Rotary.
 
The celebration was enjoyed by our Morning Star Rotarians and visitors from other Rotary clubs. As always in District 7430, there was strong representation from the ranks of Past District Governors, the Current District Governor, the District Governor Nominee and the District Governor Nominee - Designate.
