The Bulletin has the donation form `Tis The Season To Remember The Kids. Many kids in poor neighborhoods won’t be expecting much this holiday. They’ll be lucky to have warm clothes, a meal and a roof over their heads. Here is an opportunity to help these kids. You can find this form on our website at www.nyrotary.org/Bulletin/tis_the_season.pdf.
There are Rotarians, who were members of our club and then moved to other places in the world. Klaus Schreiter lived in New York for a number of years and then moved back to Munich, Germany. Klaus visited us recently and felt right at home again. I just received the following message from Klaus:
It was a great pleasure meeting you at the Rotary Club recently. When I come to New York next time I will touch base with Rotary to see old friends and to meet new friends. Thank you for putting me on your mailing list.
Thank you Klaus, I look forward to see you again. Thanks to the Internet, we can enjoy our Rotary Fellowship, no matter how far away we are.
