Rotary Club of New Bedford, MA - Weekly GAM


GAM...A nautical term describing the exchange of news between vessels departing from and returning to their ports...


November 1, 2014 



This Week  


This week’s GAM will be pretty quick.  We had a relaxing evening enjoying great appetizers, a couple of drinks with great friends at The Seaport Inn in Fairhaven. 


VISITORS AND GUESTS: Our visiting guests were Charlie, Frank, Gerry and Joy.


Marc Shpritzer – discussed Breakfast with Santa.  Marc had discussed some sponsors that had sponsored last year and asked if anyone knew them to ask if they would be interested in sponsoring again this year.  The sponsorships are where we make our most profit on this event.


 Bridgehouse Playground update – we may be choosing a Saturday in November to assemble playground.  I will forward over additional information once a date has been set. 


Upcoming events: 


November 30th – Breakfast with Santa

One More Thing


The ideal man doesn’t smoke, doesn’t drink, doesn’t do drugs, doesn’t swear, doesn’t get angry, doesn’t exist.
