We’ll be resuming our weekly dinner meetings this coming Thursday at Quigley’s. Peter Brown has lined up Schodack Town Supervisor David Harris as our speaker. Look for Debbie Brown’s request for RSVP responses so we can have a nice turnout for our visitor.
Meanwhile, this is a good time to check off some to-do items on your Rotary activities list. Here are a few possibilities. You’ll note they are quite varied, which means everyone should be able to find something they can do to help,large or small:
• We still need someone to step up to coordinate our annual Easter basket drive for Circles of Mercy. Time is very short, so please let Andy Leyhane know right away if you can do your bit to make this a successful effort for underprivileged kids.
• Our first Rotary Home Cooking event of the season is set. Maggie and Murray Forth will host a roast beef dinner at 6 p.m. Saturday, March 16, at their East Greenbush residence. Seating, as it is for all such events, is limited. Please contact the Forths ASAP if you would like to attend. First-come, first-seated.
• We’ll be holding a painting party in our meeting room at Quigley’s at 9 a.m. this coming Saturday to finish up the renovations that have included Murray’s construction of cupboards, shelving, and a display case, plus some flooring, lighting, and ceiling repairs. If you can lend a hand to make the work go quickly, please let Murray or Terry Brewer know ASAP.
• Have you been distributing copies of our flyer for the April 13 “Recycling & Shredding Day” that is a major fundraiser for our scholarships and projects? Everyone has been sent a copy in JPG form (we’re sending one again today just to be sure) that you can share on social media, print out and post on bulletin boards at school, work, church, etc. We need everyone to have a hand in this effort, so we’ll also need volunteers to work a few hours at the event. Contact Terry or Murray if you can help.
