This newsletter is later than usual, because I was busy helping my wife to prepare my son’s birthday party. He is 17 years old today.


Our next meeting on June 1st will be Italy day with Consul General of Italy in New York Antonio Bandini as our speaker. Prior to being stationed in New York, he was Deputy Head of the Italian Delegation to the United Nations Commission of Human Rights in Geneva.

Our piano player Volker Detering, who’s Classification, is Event Marketing has sent the following message about an event that he is involved with:


We are promoting a high profile, free Health Conference on June 10, covering AIDS and other diseases, with an international focus. I think this is very interesting for many Rotarians.
