The Rotary Club of New York
Our next meeting on September 3rd will be Fellowship Day with each one of us as the speaker for the day. You can read more about it in the Bulletin at www.nyrotary.org/Bulletin/bulletin090302fellowshipday.pdf
Past Trustee Bill Hall wrote Reporter of the Week. Bill has been a member since 1981 and his classification is Architecture - Professional. Bill has written a fascinating description of David Rooseveltís speech. It makes me wish I were there. I was out-of-town and I enjoyed reading about it in the Bulletin.
More and more new members join our legendary club. This week, we welcome Mikhail Petrov from Digital Edge, Rear Admiral Giovanni Vitaloni and Raffaello Gherardini from Capital Partners 2000, Inc. as new members. I see that President Silvio Amori and Director Giorgio Balestrieri have been active enrolling these members. You can read more about it in the latest Bulletin.
The Bulletin also informs us that the Chairman of the New York Rotary Foundation Mort Eydenberg celebrates his birthday on September 6th. Mort is also a driving force behind the success of the Rotary Club of New York Electronic Learning Center, which makes it possible for several thousand children in Harlem to enter the electronic world. You can read more about the Electronic Learning Center on our website at www.nyrotary.org/e-center/e-center.html.
When I listened to Rotary Radio last Tuesday, they mentioned that a local Rotary Club printed a sticker for cars that said:† Good Bye Polio - Thanks Rotary. It is such a great slogan that I wish the sticker will be available to Rotarians all over the world. It describes in a single sentence a major achievement of Rotary. You can find out more about Rotary Radio on our website at www.NYRotary.org.
As Vice Chairman of Rotaryís Global History Project at www.RotaryHistory.org, I am pleased to announce that the outstanding historian and research coordinator, Doug Rudman has joined the Rotary History Executive Committee as VP of Research. Doug has already written many interesting articles, which you can find at http://rotaryhistory.org/committee/contributors/rudman.htm. Of special interest to us in District 7230 are his web pages about the first women District Governors in Rotary History in 1995-1996 at www.rotarywomen.org/firstdgs/index.htm. This exclusive group of pioneer women includes our own Past District Governor Gilda Ghirafisi. You can read more about Gilda at www.rotarywomen.org/firstdgs/chirafisi/index.htm. Gilda remains very active in district 7230 and I donít know how our district would be able to manage without her.
