The Rotaractors have decided to partner up with a local nonprofit Eat Better Live Better to help host a 5k run/walk. See flyer below for details and feel free to come out with your friends and family and enjoy some food, fun and sun! See you there! 
Andy Petry reminded the membership about our Rotary International Foundation goal for the 2016-2017 year--hit $1,000,000 in cumulative contributions since our club's inception...  Andy announced that we are less than $15k away from the goal.  "This is the year!" Andy said.  "Please do what you can to dig a little deeper for the RI Foundation."  Andy reminded us that "Points" can be donated to encourage more participation.  More to follow from Andy.  Feel free to contact him if you have any questions.
Last week we heard from Diane Carter who is with the Morikami Museum. They are celebrating their 40th year anniversary!!! If you haven't checked out the museum yet I would definitely recommend it and it never hurts to go back a 2nd time. They also host many events throughout the year for family and children. 
 
 
 
Our club has received a thank you letter from the Ronald McDonald house for the service that we do. Keep up the excellent work Rotary Boca Raton Sunrise!!! 
Past President Erik Covitz presented to the club on "The Business of Rotary."  Erik's talk grew out of a desire to help newer members develop a more complete understanding of how our Rotary Club and RI function.  "Too often we talk about things at an advanced level that our newer members cannot follow," Erik said.  "We need to convey things clearly and provide more meaning about what our club does."
Club member N'Quavah Velazquez presented about the school she is forming, Achievement Heights Heritage (AHH) Academy.
 
"The school is built on a unique education model," she said.  "AHH will be an early learner school.  Studies show that the most important time for a child's brain to develop is between age 3 and 5.  That is when we want to reach these kids.  It will benefit them for the rest of their lives."
N'Quavah said, "AHH will be based on a family approach toward education and we will reach the students early.  NYU research shows that targeting low achieving low performing students through early intervention has significant long-term benefits for the community as well."  "Early education lasts a lifetime... Into adulthood," she said. 
Tim Sharp announced the winning Tag Line for our club...  "Serving Others Starts with Breakfast."
 
President Doyle Dally inducted Michael Kridel, whose sponsors are Rusty Herschbein and Brennan Rimer.  Once the induction procees was complete, Michael spoke to the club.
 

 
We heard from Dr. Robert Watson, Lynn University professor, on January 19, 2017.  Dr. Watson's latest book "The Nazi Titanic" was the topic of his presentation.  "It is a fascinating story," Watson said.  "I really stumbled on to it reading a letter from World War II that was written by a British soldier. The letter expressed regret over an incident that occurred in the final days of the war.  This was a curiosity to me and I had to find out more.  So I went to the British to ask for information--And I hit a wall."  Through an amazing set of circumstances, movie producer Debbie Oppenheimer connected Watson with Prince Charles' office.  And this sparked Watson as he gained access to an archive that was marked "Classified" until the year 2035.  "Once that door opened, things happened quickly," he said.  "Then I got a lot of information and support from the British government so I could get the story right."
 
This past weekend Lea Zinner and Alan Forbes helped out at the Ronald McDonald House.
