The Rotary Club of New York







Fellow Rotarians,


The speaker at our next meeting on September 10th will be Adi Roche, the founder of the Chernobyl Children’s Project. You can read more about the interesting Chernobyl Children’s Project in the Bulletin at


Our Executive Director Andreas Runggatscher wrote the latest Reporter of the Week in the Bulletin with interesting information about the last meeting. Andreas was born in the Italian Alps and came to our Rotary Club from the legendary Metropolitan Club. I enjoyed reading Andreas’ description of the last meeting, especially as I was out-of-town during the last meeting.


President Silvio Amori together with New York Rotarians Josef Klee and Katsuhito Mattsubara are soon going to celebrate their birthdays.  Happy Birthday to all of you! You can find out more about the birthdays in the Bulletin.


The Bulletin also has a picture of Board Member Giorgio Balestrieri from his visit to the Rotary Club of Monza Ovest, which is located near the famous Italian Monza Race Track.


Don’t forget to reserve your table for our next meeting. You can do so via e-mail to our office at, or call Andreas or Ana at 212-633-1311. You can also fax in the RSVP form, which you can download at Our fax number is 212-633-1954. Princeton Club’s culinary staff will serve Beef Bourguignon.

I want to thank our Executive Director Andreas Runggatscher and his Executive Assistant Ana Rivas for working so hard every week creating and mailing the Weekly Bulletin. In addition to mailing it out to our members, they also send me the electronic Bulletin so I can upload it on our website. They are also working very hard with the administration of the World Trade Center - Disaster Relief Fund.
