Hi Fellow Rotarians,
We meet at The Shattuck this week for our Breakfast Meeting.  Stephanie Niemela has the Invocation.
Good to see Russ Robertson and Dave Tower at last week's meeting -- the snowbirds, like the swallows at Capistrano, have returned!
Our Rotary Club recognized Ellie Graf as the recipient of this year's Rotary Scholarship that is given to a graduating Conant High School senior.
We have an engaging speaker for Thursday, and there is no truth to the rumor that all Rotarians who come to Thursday's breakfast meeting get a free kitten to take home with them.  That having been said, you will enjoy a very fine presentation by Kathy Collinsworth, Executive Director of the Monadnock Humane Society. Kathy's focus will be on "Adapting to the Changing Face of Animal Welfare" -- highly educational and you will gain insights and about which you may not be aware. 
Looking ahead, BEST Camp is almost on our doorstep.  Please help Jim Banghart with his effort to ensure full staffinig by offering to work an afternoon or morning shift above and beyond those to which you have already committed (and I thank you for that).  This is our once-in-the-year major effort that benefits some 90 Middle School children.  Circle the calendar for June 19th; this will be a BEST training program for all Rotarians that begins at 9am at the Middle School in Jaffrey - no more than two hours.   BEST begins July 9th.
See you Thursday -- enjoy the nice weather we are having.
Yours in Service,
Gail Therriault, Chairperson of the Charitable Giving Committee, hands a check to (L-R) Roy Baldwin, Executive Director of the Monadnock Christian Ministries, accompanied by the Ministries' Cerah Garabedian and Anna Buller.  The donation will be used to acquire playground equipment in support of the After School Program. The new equipment is anticipated to be set up and ready for the September return to school.
Rachel Ricard, a graduating senior this June from Conant High School, was recognized by her Guidance Counselor, Amanda Shaw, for her extraordinary work as an honors scholar, athlete, yearbook editor, Interactor, and member of the National Honor Society.  Rachel is our Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary "Student of the Month" for May 2018. She will matriculate at Virginia's Christopher Newport University to pursue a degree in education.
President Bob welcomes Roy Baldwin as our newest Rotarian.  Emphasizing his desire to work with children, Roy's enthusiasm is welcomed, along with his considerable experience as Executive Director of the Monadnock Christian Ministries, which will host hundreds of children this summer from all parts of the country.
Reverend David Jadlocki of the First Congregational Church in Rindge was our guest speaker, and he further raised our threshold of awareness about "food insecurity" via his informative twenty-minute presentation that focused on hunger at both a national and local level.  In support of Reverend David's efforts to gain seed money for a Food Pantry at Conant High School, the "Got Lunch" program received a generous donation from the Jaffrey-Rindge Rotary in April.
Tom Bennett and John McCarthy (both not pictured), along with Sheila Bergeron and Bob Schaumann, reviewed scholarship applications submitted to the Interact Club at Conant.  The four Rotarians were asked to review the applications and to offer insight to the Club, which will make the final decision on the $500 scholarship that will be awarded to a senior at Graduation Ceremonies in June.
