The speaker at our next
President Greg has written an article about when he and other members our legendary Rotary Club last week served a pre-Thanksgiving dinner at the Veteranís Home in East Harlem for veterans of service in the United States military. You can find Gregís article on our website at www.nyrotary.org/president_greg/first_steps.htm. You can also find Gregís other contributions at www.nyrotary.org/president_greg/trapped.htm.
I received the following message from Past District 5690 Governor Geri Appel in response to Gregís article last week:
I just have to tell you how much I enjoy reading the NY6 newsletter. I especially have enjoyed reading President Greg's stories. He's a great writer with such fun, interesting stories to tell. Please pass my thanks and appreciation to him. I could certainly relate to this week's musings about being President of the club and balancing both it and our job!
Thank you Geri for your kind message! Geri lives in Kansas and is also very active in Rotaryís Global History Fellowship, which you can find on the web at www.rghf.org.
Past President Helen Reisler sent David Wankoff the following thank you note for his roll in organizing the Pre-Thanksgiving dinner for the Veteranís:
Thanks for coordinating such a wonderful project. You described it perfectly. It was such an uplifting experience to see and feel the sincere appreciation of the veterans. I kept picturing them in their foxholes during the war---this is the least we can do for them. I was proud to be part of it.
Have a Happy
Thank you Helen for your message!
