SRC’s latest “Summer Casual” event went off beautifully when more than 30 people showed up Thursday evening at Roberto Martinez’s residence for a picnic-style meal and a lot of socializing.
In addition to many of “the usual suspects,” we also had an international flavor to the evening when we welcomed former Rotary Exchange Student Jasmine Bromberg of Denmark who spent the 2011-12 academic year here. Jasmine was in town for a visit, and presented a Rotary pennant from a Danish club to us. And, we heard from Michaela Rossetti who recently returned home after spending the academic year in Italy under the Rotary Exchange Student program.
Our thanks to host Roberto for all his efforts, and for everyone who contributed food as well as donations to our annual school supplies drive.
The next “Summer Casual” event is a pool party and cookout — guaranteed family friendly, so bring the kids — to be co-hosted by Jim and Andy Leyhane at Jim’s East Greenbush residence, 6 p.m. Thursday, August 10. Look for details in an upcoming email.
