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...



JUNE 8, 2015 



This Week 

We were back at The Wamsutta Club and had a great turnout this week.  Our guest speaker was Simrun Soni.  She is the program and volunteer manager for Horizons for Homeless Children.  This is a great organization that assists homeless children and provides them with a safe and loving environment.  One in thirty children experience being homeless.  Unfortunately, these children may have learning disabilities and other health issues due to the circumstances.  It was mentioned that if a person can volunteer 2 hours of their time per week this would provide them with a positive role model.  If anyone is interested in becoming a volunteer please call 508-510-3250 or visit www.horizonschildren.org.    

President Cheryl thanked everyone involved in the assembling of the Playground Set Community Service Project.  President elect Linda announced that the Installation of Officers will be held June 25th at The New Bedford Country Club starting at 5:30 for cocktails and dinner.  Also, July 15th we will be having a combined meeting with Fairhaven, Dartmouth and New Bedford at the Fairhaven Senior Center located at 229 Huttleston Ave, Fairhaven, Ma at 6:00pm. (Near Stop & Shop)
