The speaker at our next
In my last newsletter, I mentioned that one of the challenges of
speaking at Rotary Clubs is to finish the meal before it is time to speak. That
same evening, I received a phone call from President Greg where he assured me
My speech about Paul Harris was very well received and many
Lou DiPaolo, who is Director of the Rotary Club of New York, sent me the following message:
What a delightful presentation about Paul Harris. You put the facts together and introduced history like I have not heard it since I joined Rotary 24 years ago.
Keep up the good work. I liked your comments and how you had the radio broadcast from Paul himself. That is well done.
I hope you do well on your road show.
Thank you Lou, I really appreciate your message.
The main point of my speech was that Paul Harris was a fellow and not a saint, which is exactly what Paul Harris wanted. The greatness of Rotary is that we are a fellowship of 1.2 million members around the world. Without Paul Harris, it would not be possible.
Jim Morita and Camille
Uy presented me with a Paul Harris Fellowship Award after my speech. The Paul
Harris Fellowship is given in response to a donation of $1,000, which goes to
the Rotary International Foundation and pays for its programs to enhance
international understanding. As Chairman of District 7230 Group Study Exchange
Committee, I have learned to appreciate what Rotary International does to
promote international understanding. President Greg has said that he would like
for all our members to participate in the Paul Harris Fellowship program. You
donít have to donate $1,000 to participate. It possible to participate for as
little as $100 per year as a Paul Harris Sustaining Member, which results in a
Paul Harris Fellowship in 10 years. You can read about our Paul Harris
Fellowship members on the

Our Executive Director Andreas Runggatscher sent me the following warning message:
During the next several weeks be VERY cautious about opening or launching any e-mails that refer to the World Trade Center or 9/11 in any way, regardless of who sent it. PLEASE FORWARD TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY. FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW, "WTC" STANDS FOR THE
BIG TROUBLE!!!! DO NOT OPEN "WTC Survivor" It is a
virus that will erase your whole "C" drive. It will come to you in
the form of an E-Mail from a familiar person. I repeat, a friend sent it to me,
but called and warned me before I opened it. He was not so lucky and
now he can't even start his computer!
Forward this to everyone in your address book. I would rather receive this 25 times than not at all. So, if you receive an email called "WTC Survivor", do not open it. Delete it right away! This virus removes all dynamic link libraries (.dll files) from your computer.
PLEASE FORWARD THIS MESSAGE!
Thank you Andreas, it does not hurt to be extra careful.
