Our next meeting on February 17th will be Fellowship Day with each of us as speakers. We can speak to each other about ourselves, our businesses, our ideas and our committees. We can also speak to a new member or bring a guest to experience our fellowship. It is a perfect opportunity for chair people to meet with their committees and to report committee progress at the microphone. You can read more about our next Fellowship Day in the latest Bulletin on our website at www.nyrotary.org/bulletin2004/bulletin_02-17-2004.pdf (click on the link).

What a splendid way to Lend a Hand! Those outside the club will also find inspiration from being members of the family of Rotary. Please keep up the good work.
Jonathan B. Majiyagbe
Thank you Jonathan for your very kind message! I believe that no matter what titles and positions we have in Rotary, we are first and foremost Fellow Rotarians. Last time when I met RI President Jonathan Majiyagbe was during Rotary’s United Nations Day on October 4th, 2003. You can read Jonathan’s speech at this event on our website at www.nyrotary.org/united_nations/un_day_2004.html.
