Program: When Journalism was Real
Club member, Maria Karagianis shared a few of her experiences from her journalism work at Boston Globe during the 70's.  Some of those stories included; 1) the riots over integration and mandatory busing, 2) an  assignment in South Africa, where she illegally entered the black township of Soweto, traveled with a black man and covered the apartheid situation and 3) a recent assignment to the Greek island of Lesbos, to report on the refugee problems, which were being completely covered up by the government.  
Maria also talked about the a learning center that was established (Discovering Justice), designed for the study of civics, law & justice. Maria was part of the Pulitzer Prize winning team from the Boston Globe for coverage of busing during desegregation in Boston. Maria now provides consulting strategy services for a non-profit.

President's Message

Hello All,

Thank you for granting me the opportunity to serve as the president of the Rotary club of Longmont for the 2021–2022 Rotary year.

The upcoming year will be one of continuing change as we start the process of returning to the “new normal“ of in-person meetings. The process is going to be a "crawl, walk, run" and I hope everyone will be patient. 
The theme of this rotary year is "Serve to change lives".  It will be wonderful to be able to come up with projects to follow this theme and continue to serve our community locally nationally and internationally.
While we will not be able to have in person RYLA again this year, there will be a one day virtual session. With school being in person, I am looking forward to the Young Rotarian‘s being able to start up again in the fall. Our youth are the future of rotary!
My goal this year is to grow our club by a few members and for everyone to think of younger people in the community who would make great Rotarians.
I look forward to a terrific year.
Yours in Rotary,
Debby Paris
