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... 


March 1, 2015


This Week


This week’s meeting was our monthly social evening meeting which was held at The Wamsutta Club.  We had a pretty good turnout considering the brutally cold and miserable weather we have been having.  The appetizers were great and the alcohol beverages were very tasty too.  President Cheryl is going to be promoting the Membership Drive which is scheduled for March 25th at The Wamsutta Club.  She has asked all to think of anyone who could be a possible future Rotarian and invite them to our Membership Drive.  President Cheryl would like this to be a great successful evening. 


VISITORS AND GUESTS: Charlie Barrett, Gerry Dupont, Frank Faria, Joy Freitas, Joan Riley and Carl Soares (former Rotarian who will be sworn at our March Board Meeting)
