The Rotary Club of New York






Fellow Rotarians,


Many New York Rotarians attended Joe Sullivan’s funeral on Wednesday August 7th at 10:00 AM at St Agnes Catholic Church in New York. It was a beautiful ceremony and a heartfelt farewell to a great New York Rotarian. Joe was always willing to help, even on his 85th birthday, when the Sisters of Fraternite Notre Dame asked him to help out in the soup kitchen, while preparing his surprise birthday party. You can find Joe’s obituary in the Bulletin.


The speaker at our next meeting on August 13th will be Beth Gilinsky, who is the founder of the Jewish Action Alliance, the nation’s leading grassroots Jewish civil and human rights program. You can read more about Beth Gilinsky in the Bulletin at


Dave Gibbs, wrote the Reporter of the Week in the Bulletin about the last meeting’s great program.


The Bulletin tells us that the Board of Directors approved Anders Eggen and Ivan Vosloo as new members. Anders’ classification is Invest. Mgmt. – Analysis and Ivan’s classification is South African Consul. – Political. Welcome both of you to our great club!
