What a great joint Area 7 meeting we had this week at White’s of Westport. We had a short presentation from Mission Wolf. We were introduced to three most beautiful wolves named Abraham, Magpie & Zeab. They are on a five state tour through Massachusetts, New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and Kansas. They are traveling in an old Marine Bus. What a sight to see. It was very interesting the discussion on how wolves are not out to hurt people. I would love to see a longer presentation from them maybe next year. If you want to see a little more information on Mission Wolf go to: www.MissionWolf.org
Our guest speakers were Paulette Boudrot and Terri Fitch who spoke about Rotary International Foundation and why we should donate. Forty eight percent of Rotarians donate to the Foundation. For every dollar that is donated fifty cents goes back to district. The funds can be used for local or international projects.
District 7950 is holding a Paul Harris Foundation Dinner on November 13th at Venus De Milo.
Cocktails will be from 5:30-6:45 and dinner will be served at 7:00. As always spouses, family and friends are invited. There will be great speakers and should be a wonderful event.
