Our meeting at the Park Theater – Our meeting at the Park Theater went off without a hitch.  Thanks to Dave Bogue and Mike Woodbury who spent numerous hours getting this organized for us.  The food was great and audio visual was outstanding with a large screen and not one, but two portable microphones that worked flawlessly.  I had a little trouble ringing the bell as the hammer was lost missing.  Rumor has it that we may not be able to use the Queensbury Hotel for two (2) additional meetings, so will need another place to meet.  If you have any feedback about the Park Theater, please let one the board members know your thoughts. 
John Mucha and Charles Adams presented how the Rotary Foundation works and why it is important to not only our club but to the world.  Several examples of projects were presented that involved Rotary being the catalyst to provide sanitation and clean water that affected the lives of thousands of people.  International projects such as building a dam, water filtration systems, handwashing training, and hand hygiene sanitation were discussed. Please keep the Rotary Foundation in mind when donating for this year.
